Just a crazy idea for you to think about.

Go to https://www.xda-developers.com

maybe someone found a way to change the OS to Android.

 There is no need to support Windows phone only, when it's a universal! At this moment I don't like the Windows version of Spotify at all on my Surface Pro 4+ i7 512Gb 16Gb ram and HP 64ram. It's using to much memory and I realy don't know why that's necessary were I use almost all the music in memory mode.

 At the high security level of our business, it's not possible to use google content. However we're trying apple's, but the office365, necessary for business issues, failed. And I already know that Android is also a fail at Office365 and that is besides the low level of private security.

So the possibilities are using 2 OS phones, one for business and one for music or another music streaner when Spotify really stops on Windows! I prefer another music streamer, were 2 OS's isn't  what I want.

 

I really don't understand why Spotify isn't making a universal Windows app, were that would be so much easier to use!

Thanks to @spotify and there stopping on Windows @Microsoft, I tried @Deezer and wowww  Deezer Hifi is so much better then Spotify on my Denon AVR "just works great  on a much higher level!" And Deezer has a Windows Universal app "love it". 

 

They only thing is that Spotify was offered by my phone company, hopefully I can rit of Spotify and otherwise I  pay for 2 music streamers 'were Spotify will be useless for Microsoft Windows users'.

Strange, that's my experience with Spotify and totally not with Deezer. Deezer is a Universal app and even works fine on my Windows Ohone and my HP Elite X3, which are both a lot lighter then your laptop. But even on my Windows tablet, Surface i7 16Gb, my PC and Denon Hifi it works a lot faster and easier as spotify; 'And yes I'm a premium Spotify user right from the start'. 

I'm a heavy Office365 business user and won't walk around with 2 mobiles, were the android/ios only will  be  for spotify. So I rather chose another music streamer and now I see**bleep** Spotify works on Microsoft's Windows and Denon; So I'm happy with Deezer, I only must pay about 20 months for Spotify. (May be I can make somebody else happy with that).

FYI: Deezer just replaced their old Windows 10 UWP app with their new desktop version, so you cannot download it anymore from the MS Store.

Have  you looked in the Microsoft store on  your Windows phone? Because I have and it's still there, indeed with a fine update last week!

I've tested an android phone and I don't like the OS. I can buy an apple, haven't tested that yet, but it's far overpriced for what you get. And there is no future for apple, it's only iphone and their sellings are less! 

I hope that Microsoft comes this year with their Surface Phone, that will be the pc/laptop in your pocket "the ultimate!"

I don't have a Windows Phone, only using Windows 10 on my desktop PC where you get their new desktop app in the MS Store now if you try to download it. But thanks for the info, does the new Windows Phone app also support the HiFi audio setting with FLAC streaming? That would be a unique feature, because their Android and iOS apps do not, only their desktop app.
