You are using the deprecated  and now discontinued Mobile Streaming SDK  for iOS.

You now need to use the App Remote SDK.

Here is an iOS SDK Quick Start guide that can help you to implement this new SDK.

In other words R.I.P to your app 😞

Thanks, but App remote app required Spotify app installed and also it play in Spotify app not in our app.


any idea about how to play tracks as deprecate sdk work? 

It's never going to work again. According to this article, they already urged you to work with the new SDKs going forward in 2018. Also, they did shut down the old Spotify mobile streaming SDKs in 2019, as you can read here.

All developper who still used or began to use that SDKs after those days, took a great risk that their app(s) may not work in the future.

Agreed, I was one of those devs and I'm still a bit mad but I was fully aware of the risk taken. 

In the end it's just a shame because the new SDKs don't provide any functionalities other than the basic playback.
