[Desktop][Developer] Spotify for Windows on Arm (Win32) Desktop app badly needed

Can you tell me when Spotify will be released for Windows on ARM and where on your Roadmap it is?

 

Windows on ARM PCs have been out a few years now and whilst the 32-Bit Windows App works, due to software emulation not optimally.

 

Apple announced on the 22nd of June Macs are moving to ARM starting the end of the year and they expect the transition away from Intel to ARM to take 2 years. Both Microsoft and Adobe are working on ARM compatibility.


Currently on my Microsoft Surface Pro X I have to use the 32-Bit download which lags.


A new idea was posted for this last year but it's been closed as it didn't get enough Likes but it didn't get enough Likes as it's been closed 😕 -

Hi HiMihailY,

 

There's been an app compatible with ARM PCs since May 2022. See Page 6 of this thread here:

Do you mean by "rolling out" it's now out of Beta?

 

Does this mean it's going to be published to the Microsoft Store?

 

And does this mean Windows on ARM PCs with the 32-Bit app installed will automatically be updated to the Windows on ARM version?

 

Thanks.

When will we have for Linux ARM?

@bradavon yes it is out of Beta, and will be available from the Microsoft Store, and you will be updated to the right architecture based on your machine's processor.

 

And this roll out will take a few weeks, so everyone should have it available by early September. 

 

Sorry @Expiring7845 no plans for Linux at this time.

This is great news, thanks to the Devs at Spotify!

The AR64 version is now on the Microsoft Store. The Store is the recommended way to install Spotify as it's then updated by the Store and not another Updater running on the PC,

Could you maybe also release Spotify for ARM64 Linux? With the .deb and .rpm files as well?
