StudentGrantGB  Microsoft themself want to ''KILL'' the mobile OS.

I can't see any reason for SPOTIFY or other software spand there reasorses on OS that going to desepeare in several years from now.

Every platform have here epproach. I never understood for what Microsoft Mobile os will be good for phone users the same as i can't see any benefit for Android as a PC OS.

Hi,

I have Lumia 950XL and last month a couldn´t search any song. Ok I agree Spotify kill all Windows mobile user, because Spotify spend a lot of money for this. But if I open www.spotify.com in browser on my mobile phone, why I can use ony mobile version without search bar? Why I can´t switch browser to desktop full mode, where is search bar for normal searching? Now I have any chance to use Spotify corectly!!! Spotify please create switch button to desktop mode from your mobile web page.

thanks

Tomas

Hello,

 

bad news for WinPone users. Bleak vision, where to change. Over priced Apple or terrible Android...

Seems, I've to cancel the premium pack, as I use Spotify on smartphone only...

It's been over a year and nobody ayt Spotify can tell me (and the rest of us) why they are so incompenet as to not have a true UWP app for all 600 million odd W10 users. I have gone from a fan of his company to thinking they are at the bottom of the heap.

Thank you both Spotify and Microsoft for taking our money and provide such poor service.

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 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.


From the technical support of Spotify they confirmed that Spotify stops with the app for Windows 10 and they said me to take Deezer were they staying to support their UWP app.  I'm not happy with all my playlist of several years, which I can't take with me to Deezer. But I'm not using my phone only for music, but also for business and that's were Windows is the best. Were my HP Elite X3 has a wonderful sound with B&O build "Deezer here I come!" 

 

'Hallo Michel,

Dank voor je terugkoppeling.

Wij hebben getracht te achterhalen waarom de zoekfunctie verdwijnt voor Windows phone. Helaas moeten wij je het antwoord schuldig blijven. Rond midden maart zal de functie volledig zijn verdwenen. Wij begrijpen volledig je teleurstelling, meer in het bijzonder de door jou gedane investering.

Wij kunnen je als alternatief Deezer aanraden. Deezer heeft een universele Windows app.

Het spijt ons niet aan je verzoek te kunnen voldoen. Wij hopen dat wij je zo voldoende hebben geïnformeerd. Als je verder nog andere vragen hebt, horen wij het graag.

Een hele fijne dag toegewenst!

xxxxx

There is always Pandora now. The client is still available for Windows Phone, and they now offer streaming service like Spotify does.

 

I informed them I would be not be using the service again after my Sub runs out in March due to the Windows Phone Termination.

 

In reality this is not the end of Windows on phone devices.

 

MS is releasing  their Windows 10 Andromeda, which is suppose to make it easier to have applications on both Intel and ARM systems. You will be able to install WIndows 10 Andromeda on either a Desktop device or an ARM based cellphone.

 And with that there'll come the Surface Phone on the market. I also don't understand anything from a company like Spotify, which brings several Spotify apps on the store instead of one (cheaper and better performance) UWP app. "I always learned -1 negative client tells it to 100 people and  gives 10 other negative clients-"

Buying CD works good for w10m, which still rocks with Groove and works great. CDs incredibly cheap at charity shops, eBay and musicmagpie; if you want just one particular song you can often buy whole album or a compilation CD at same price as the one track on Amazon etc. Rip CD to WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER on your w10 pc, make sure it saves to OneDrive and syncs to Groove and you're away. Then sell the CD or donate to charity shop 😀
