Appalling support (or lack of it) for Microsoft products.Why?

Music Fan

Yes I will be cancelling my subscription after the free month because :

 

1 Official Spotify Windows Phone 8 app poor and no connect to wifi speakers (eg Pioneer XW SMA series) unlike the iphone

2 No app for Windows 8.1  metro/ RT.

3 Spotify web site will not allow streaming to DLNA devices in Windows 8.1 RT or desktop (unlike e.g. BBC iplayer)

 

Spotify does work with Logitech Squeezebox (RIP) through a wonderful 3rd party app.

The new spotify app that will be coming out for WIndows Phone 8.1 soon, is rumored to be a new Universal that will work with both Windows Phone and WinRT, but yeah I agree Spotify's support for Microsoft products has indeed been pretty lacking.

I've been waiting to move to Windows Phone, but won't do it until that sad excuse for an app that's currently on there is updated. Can't go from a freshly updated iOS version to that. FIX!

Am I missing something (the connect icon) or can you not even use Spotify connect to send music to my Yamaha AVR/Pioneer speaker from the OFFICIAL Spotify Windows 8 desktop program.  I think I will look at Deezer as Microsoft product support cannot be any worse than this.

Spotify Connect is not yet available in Spotify Desktop on any platform - but it should be added in the future.

Spotify have confirmed Windows Phone updates are coming soon:
