[Samsung] Spotify for Samsung TV - Tizen OS

Would be really nice to have in this year the Spotify app available for the 2015 and 2016 models of Samsung Smart TV's running Tizen OS, at least some kind of beta or limited functionality one if not fully working. It's a shame that Spotify is still not available in the Samsung SmartHub after 2 years of the release of the new platform.

Ok, so my 2015 Samsung TV (J5500) has all the latest updates and the web browser reports itself to be running on Tizen 2.3. Check.

 

The Spotify app is nowhere to be found in the App Store. My suspicion is that the apps are somehow region controlled and the apps have to be regionally approved for you to be able to download. This is either done by Samsung or the app developer (Spotify in this case). Maybe worth looking into?

But,... what are we waiting for?
I have also seen this page on Spotify, assuming that Tizen Samsung TV are now supported.
No Spotify found on my JS9500 (in Belgium)
Samsung Tizen version problem? (but I have the latest update)

Tizen smart TVs are hugely popular and it's ridiculous that you don't have a Spotify app for the platform.

Is it a joke? The link that previously reported that a Spotify app was available for Tizen and Samsung Smart TV now reports a 404 error!!!??? What is that?

Finally, thank you. I confirm that it works, and it's even nicely synchronizing with the app on the phone. Good job.
