IPod Touch 3rd Generation no longer connects to Spotify?

My Question or Issue

I used to be able to connect to Spotify from my old iPod Touch 3rd Generation but not any more. According to a chat I had online with Spotify, this is correct.

I can access downloaded media but cannot Search, Browse, etc.

Can any community members confirm this, as it seems strange that Spotify would actively "break" the functionality for older devices? thanks

Hey @wheezilsarego,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

If you're having troubles using Spotify on your device, you'll also need to make sure that particular device meets Spotify's current minimum system requirements.

 

Unfortunately, if your device doesn't meet the minimum requirements, it won't be possible to use Spotify and access Spotify content through the Spotify app or troubleshoot it properly.

 

You can always check the current minimum system requirements here.

 

Hope this clears things up 🙂

Well yes I know Spotify doesn’t work *now* on my iPod Touch 3 but my point
is that it used to.

So have Spotify changed the *server-side* software so that it no long works
with the older *application-side* code? Seems a bit odd

Thanks

Things can definitely break in unsupported/older app versions, that's why it's always important to keep your apps up-to-date.

 

Since you're using a device that's no longer supported, there's, unfortunately, nothing that can be done to fix this.
