If you read back in the thread you can see that I have, on more than one occasion, made it clear that I was well aware and ready to face issues. Of course I'm not naive enough to believe that everything is likely to work, nor would I be disparaged when it doesn't.
And for the record, I am more than qualified to speculate potential causes of the issue. I have been developing for Apple platforms for nigh on 5 years and have seen a lot in that time. Of course, bug fixing is very much a fine art and it could be something very obscure that defies expectations, again, I'm not naive enough to think otherwise.
I have the beta because I am a developer. Apple as well as third parties rely on the detailed reports that developers (ie, people who know what they're talking about) to help assist them in debugging the issues. They appreciate our speculations as just maybe, it fast tracks them to the solution.
Spotify expects to have issues with new software, as do I when I need to support my apps on new OS versions. It's part of the software development lifecycle. Apple's resposibility is to fix OS level issues and performance degredation, they don't touch third party apps.
Finally, at what part in this thread did I complain about there being issues? I simply bought it to the attention of the community and Spotify developers.
Please make sure you are educated in the whole context of the discussion before blasting your mouth.

With naive claims done to the post I replied then I see it totally normal.
You could have posted this post in the first place and not the other one that made you look like someone who is ready to cry when one of it's things don't work.
Good thing for you that you are a developer and you know about the bug fixing art and unfortunately it isn't that easy but Apple proved last year to be a nightmare and until now nothing has changed. Hopefully things are getting better with the releases coming during the whole summer.
If you want to bring something to the attention of the Developers that might change something you could very well contact Spotify directly as the response will get faster to them or post a solid idea.
Have a nice day 🙂

So it seems that by default, Spotify *should* work on Mojave beta 1 as long as you add it under "Accessibility" & "Application Data" in Security & Privacy > Privacy, and *do not* have any conflicting apps. (I'm guessing apps that try to "access" Spotify's state)
For me the app that was causing Spotify to crash was uBar.
I tried this, and it didn't work. Spotify loads, but the window is a plain, black screen (I do see a menu bar). Tried turning off Dark Mode, rebooting, etc, but no luck.
-EDIT- Took a full shutdown for it to work. First reboot required force-quitting the Spotify application, and that didn't seem to fix it. Doing a full shutdown with no applications open, etc, got it to work.
