Spotify has been updated to a much better interface, but the problem is that this new interface made it almost impossible to use. The app takes almost 1 minute to open if connected and 30 seconds in offline mode. And while navigating throught the playlists, it takes a long time for them to load. When playing, eventually the track stutters like a scratched CD. Before this update, the app used to load a lot faster and the songs flow perfectly. Please address this issue, I cannot wait up to 2 minutes or more to get my songs playing and the stutters are annoying. I am running Spotify on WP10 on Lumia 640XL, I believe I have enough hardware to get this app running without performance issues.
Hello everyone. We have some news to share while we mark this as 'Case Closed'.
Spotify for Windows Phone has been placed into maintenance mode. We’ll only be making critical security updates to the current Spotify app and won’t be releasing any new features or improving support for old devices going forward.
For now, you can continue using the current version of Spotify on previously supported Windows Phones, and it will remain available for download via the Windows Store.
We’ll continue to work closely with Microsoft to ensure the best experience on Windows platforms and are constantly evaluating the most effective path going forward.
