My Question or Issue
My App Store iOS app has been using the streaming SDK (the official, but now-deprecated, iOS Streaming SDK) since it was released in 2014, to provide users with more advanced equalizer settings than are available in the 1st-party iOS app. My users have begun expressing concerns to me about whether their experience in my music player will be cut off by the same End-Of-Life date for Spotify integration announced by some DJ app developers (e.g. Djay's Algoriddim) recently—July 1, 2020.
I've reached out to @SpotifyPlatform and @SpotifyCares on Twitter for comment, but so far I have not received a response. I have not received any official email communications from you guys (outside of a usage survey that went out a month ago), and there is not any news on the Developer Announcements page lending credence to or clarifying the July 1 cutoff date. As a longstanding developer with thousands of users and no history of problems with Spotify, I would expect more than 60 days' notice if there was really going to be a complete termination like this.
@spotifyjosh, can you or another Spotify member help dispel this rumor, or clarify for all streaming app developers whether this date of July 1 affects them and their users?
