Quota extension request rejected

Quota extension request rejected

Hola developers out there,

I recently submitted the extension request for one of my social media applications we have been developing, here is the use case.

Users can create short videos out of images and videos by applying the audio to them, they can search for a specific audio file from the library and apply the music to the image or video selected from their phone device.

Our app then will merge the image and audio or video and audio to generate a new mp4 file.

I am attaching the screenshot of the rejection email.

I am also attaching the screenshots from my app.

Can anybody suggest what changes to make in order to get approval for the extension request?

Thanks & Regards

Based on the rejection email, it seems that your app has been rejected because it does not comply with Spotify's terms and conditions. Specifically, Spotify's policy prohibits the use of their content as background music in visual media such as advertising, film, TV programs, livestreams, slideshow videos, etc.


To get approval for the extension request, you may need to modify your app's use case and ensure that it complies with Spotify's policies. Here are some suggestions:


1. Consider using non-Spotify music: Instead of using Spotify's content, consider using non-Spotify music in your app. You can either create your own library of music or use a third-party music provider that has permission to use the music.

2. Change the focus of your app: Consider changing the focus of your app so that it does not use Spotify's content as background music. For example, you could create an app that allows users to create short videos with their own music, or an app that allows users to search for and share music with others.

3. Contact Spotify for clarification: If you believe that your app complies with Spotify's policies, you can contact them for clarification. They may be able to provide additional information about their policies and help you understand how to make your app comply.


In summary, to get approval for the extension request, you need to ensure that your app complies with Spotify's policies. Consider using non-Spotify music, changing the focus of your app, or contacting Spotify for clarification.
