Really embarrassing that this still hasn’t happened.

The status has changed to ‘good suggestion’ though. Guess we’re on to something here 😉

It feels as though Spotify actively neglects adopting features that are important to Apple users, due to Spotify's ongoing tantrum with Apple over App store commission. If this is the case, please stop. It's frustrating, especially seeing as many users signed up outside of the appstore in support of Spotify's stance. Spotify neglecting these features doesn't change how users feel about Apple, it just creates frustration towards Spotify. If this is not the case, and it's just that Spotify is painfully slow at adopting standards released years ago, Spotify should make its' investors aware that “MAUs” will drop as users realise that Spotify isn't interested in creating a product that they can use.

Hello everyone,

 

We've discussed this Idea internally and while we are working on supporting AirPlay2 in a proper way, we have decided to close it for now.

 

The reason for this is that due to audio driver compatibility issues, this seems like a bigger project that we won't be able to complete in the foreseeable future.

 

Please keep adding your votes and comments here and as soon as we have anything new to share, we'll check back with an update.

Huh?! I think we need more clarity on why you closed this, said you're not planning on supporting AirPlay 2 in a proper way, and a few days later (after a big backlash in social media), say you "will support AirPlay 2."

@xenia, given your prior response of having supposedly discussed it internally and decided against the feature I think we deserve more of an explanation on the U-turn.

That a much smaller company, with far fewer resources, Deezer, can produce world class iOS apps that put Spotify to shame, with both Lossless Siri based HomePod support and Airplay 2, should be frankly embarrassing for Spotify devs and management.

Your silence on the matter is deafening.

You should be embarrassed Spotify for the press you’re recirculating from this latest confusion stunt you pulled.
