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 😕 -
As announced previously, the beta release is now ready and can be downloaded from THIS LINK.
Please uninstall any any previous versions of Spotify and install the Arm beta from the link above. Before doing so, make sure that you’re indeed using an Arm processor.
The current version is 188.8.131.527. There may be subsequent updates which will work much like those on the Desktop app.
There is currently one known issue with this release - some video Podcast episodes can't be played and trying to do so results in an error message about updating the Spotify client version. There is a workaround to this for those of you who want to play this content, but also want to test the beta and help us improve it. Just go to the Shareoption in the menu, copy the Web link and paste it in your browser to then watch it there in the web player instead.
We would love to hear your feedback on what works fine and if you encounter any technical hiccups. This will help us develop this version of the app and ensure it meets your expectations 🙂
