Android tablets do have the feature, partly because there's not much of a hard line between tablet and phone apps on Android like there is on iOS. Also, even though there are a lot more Android tablets out there, the acual usage of Android tablets is dwarfed by the usage of the iPad by a huge margin:
And as I said, the labels are very particular, and often arbitrary in their demands. There could very well be contractual obligations that apply to Apple class devices that do not apply to the Android devices which came to market later.
Unless you actually work for Spotify or have hard evidence that this is actually the case, please may I suggest that you refrain from making speculative remarks. You're merely making excuses for the poor service that Spotify are providing premium customers that pay £120 per year and receive little in the way of updates for their device. Your argument is not in any way constructive to this petition.
Teilo, you seem very educated as to why we are in the wrong forum and why Spotify can't rock the contractual boat. Where have you got this information from? Can you tell us all where the right place to petition is? please don't beat up on me, I'm just a part of a "community forum" who are trying to get a result. We are all supportive of each other with a simple, common goal and I wondered if you are a supporter of this forum. If so can you please help us along with some suggestions? If not, would you mind politely sitting this one out? We actually just want to be able to use our iPads for Spotify just like all other devices. Are you with us? I would love to know why this feature hasn't been implemented and where else I can petition to get this feature sorted. Your input could be useful.
It's never a good policy to try to drive away a thoughtful, interested commenter. If you think this forum thread will accomplish something, chatter about this issue that bumps it to the top can only help.
I'm pretty sure Spotify knows a lot of iPad users want My Music and they (Spotify) do want to bring it to us. Did they screw up the app dev or the label negotiations? I think with such a delay it's pretty clear by now that if they could be completely honest, they would admit they screwed up big time in some way.
An ETA would certainly be nice. The lack of one suggests it is not entirely in their control (i.e. contracts w/labels).
