Support IPv6

As well as supporting IPv4, it would be good if Spotify supported IPv6 both on its own servers and for the P2P sharing. Although I have both IPv4 and IPv6 on my system, the Spotify app is only listening on IPv4.

I have IPv6-only networks now, please add support!

I'm moving my home network toward NAT64. Testing things out tonight, Spotify is the first thing to noticeably fail.

 

Scratching the surface, the desktop (OSX) app appears to only be requesting A records for the hostnames that it needs to access. If the app requested AAAA records, and it knew how to handle them, then Spotify would work in a NAT64 environment.

 

Fortunately, the browser player works in this environment without v4. But then I lose little things like the player buttons on the Mac keyboard.

Any work in getting this to work with IPv6-only yet?

At minimum please support NAT64 environments in the client; the rest (server side) can come later, but the client really needs to be IPv6 ready...

I am offline too. Please to have ipv6 support. It seems like everything works like normal except the spotify app.
