Support Windows Media Audio (*.wma) files!

Status: Inactive Idea

I have an extensive library of .wma files, most of it I've had for years before I bought my current computer or Spotify even existed.  A good amount of it represents songs which are not available on Spotify.  I understand others have been dealing with this issue as well, concerning not only .wma files, but .flac lossless as well.

 

In order for Spotify to be truly integrated into my listening habits, it's high time .wma is supported in the Desktop app and also on Windows phones.

 

(This is a repost of a previously closed idea, in order to redouble my efforts.)

 

Thank you for your consideration.

Yea. I need this too.

Me too. Only 1/10th of my local files are in mp3 format. Google music even plays wma files - sheesh!

I would love to have this feature as well. It's really annoying to have to use two different media players... I love Spotify but I hate having to switch just in order to load my songs which are WMA files. It would be really nice to consolidate everything into one media player.

Same for me. Just entered Spotify now and all my local music is in .wma

Please support WMA! A lot of older music is in this format and I would like to integrate it into my playlists.

No WMA? Baaah. Support it! C'mon!
