Spotify on Mycroft Smart Speaker

Spotify just disabled API access for the Mycroft smart speaker.  I can no longer use it to listen to the Spotify account I pay for.

 

This is really frustrating.  The skill was community developed and maintained and worked fine.  Now I can't access my Spotify account via voice without having Amazon, Google or Apple spying on me.

It smells like an anti-competition move.  Spotify is reportedly working on thier own voice assistant, but they are also continuing to support Alexa, Cortana, Siri and Google Assistant.

 

They have not been willing to communicate about the issue.  If we don't hear back from them we may file an anti-trust complaint with the EU.

It stinks of using their market size to disadvantage smaller players.

I am also a paying user of Spotify Family. I cannot understand why they are doing this to us customers for no apparent reason.

Second this, I pay for a Spotify membership and should be able to access it however I want to.
