I agree 100%. I pay "premium" and was not told about the significant gap in services (but not in fees). We ought to talk to a plaintiff's attorney about a class action. What are the alternatives (besides get an android or iphone)?
I'm a previous subscriber to Spotify, but had to leave because the Windows Phone client was so limited and crash-prone.
It's really a slap in the face to see iOS and Android get a lot of new features and now free streaming on mobile/tablet - while the WP users don't even have the basic functionality that they PAY for.
I still listen to Spotify on the PC (ad supported) because the UI is better than Xbox Music there, but I pay for Xbox Music to use on my phone. If Spotify got their act together, I'd sign up and pay for Spotify right away again. Sadly, it seems they have zero interest in doing anything.
Have Spotify even responded to the recent demand for a Windows Phone update? I , too, have recently migrated from iOS to WP and love it. However, being a Premium subscriber, I feel like I'm being cheated out of features; as far as I know, free users have access to the radio feature and I don't. At least an acknowledgement of our frustration would be appropriate in my opinion.
So, there is no official response of Spotify staff here?
I just got a new Lumia 1520, and Nokia Music is my first choice then, If you update the application for Windows Phone, let me know and I will be premium if and only if you at least implement radio and discover in the application.
I cancelled my Spotify Premium Subsciption a few days ago because of the Windows Phone App. Now I'm trying Deezer because their app for Windows Phone seems to be much better. However, I don't want to support a service which doesn't have a good app for my mobile device, so bye-bye Spotify.
