Do I need approval for making a commercial app?

Casual Listener

The page here seems to state that you do https://developer.spotify.com/support/

 

But there seems to be no way to do it https://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-for-Developers/Where-I-can-get-the-written-approval-for-my-...

 

Is this something that only businesses can apply for and not indie devs?

I think it depends what you're trying to do if I understand the terms correctly. 

You are not allowed to use the streaming API without written consent, but it looks like you are allowed to use the non-streaming SDK's.

I am interested in knowing how to contact Spotify about this as well. As an Indie Dev, I would like to create an application that uses Spotify's API and streaming services. I would need to be able to monetize it in some capacity(likely subscription-based). Does anyone know how to contact them in this manner?

There is a form you can use: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScawLOKdjegmKoIan9CJRiqrXDmBJ5-rLPa29hXJkSUPC1SCA/viewform

 

But I've heard some developers didn't get any response, even after months.

Where is the reference for this form, please?

I have just completed it, but how do I know if it is legit?

There's a link to this form in the popup you get when creating a new app, from the dashboard. https://developer.spotify.com/dashboard/applications See attached screenshot.
