[Desktop][Developer] Add support for Apple Silicon (ARM64 on Mac)

Feature request:

Add support for Apple Silicon in a future Spotify release on Mac OS.


Apple have recently released a new generation of Macs based on their own Apple Silicon. I hope that Spotify will prioritize native support for this new CPU architecture.  If so the best music platform on the Mac, will continue running great natively on the new generation Mac hardware.

Hello and thanks for bringing your feedback to the Idea Exchange. We've marked this as a new idea.
Spotify Staff will look into this idea once it reaches the necessary amount of votes.

More information about how the Spotify Idea Exchange works can be found here.


I can't believe this isn't already done...    The M1 was released on November 10, 2020.


Come on, release an M1 native app in order for us to use Spotify without it crashing every time


Shame on you Spoti... 😤


This issue should not even be on the ideas list, the app should just have been updated at around the time the machines were released. Now even Photoshop is native, and that code base is absolutely HUGE compared to Spotify...


Yes!!! I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1, 2020) and I also want this to be solved as soon as possible!

Spotitfy doesn't care about its users 😞


This is so embarrassing for Spotify, but I don't think they see it that way.


Any updates on this?

Why would this need a community post and votes to add it to the roadmap? Apple has changed its entire architectural direction and many smaller developers have put out an Apple Silicon version of their software. This should just... be done.

Please. While you make the switch, just press a button in your developer profile and select the option "Yes, I want my iPad app delivered to all macOS users with a M1 computer". It's just a button, it takes five minutes and none of your precious developer man/hours.

Spotify runs so crippled on my M1 Mac Mini it's an awful experience! All Macs will run on Apple Silicon soon - this should be priority #1 at Spotify today.
