Spotify ends support for Windows Phone app

Streaming giant Spotify has ended support for its Windows Phone apps, although you can continue to use the app indefinitely without any new updates.
The company launched their Windows Phone 7 app in 2011 and then the Windows Phone 8.x app in 2013. There has yet to be a native Windows 10 mobile app.

"We can confirm Windows Phone 8.x is no longer supported. You can still use our Spotify application on the associated devices, but it will no longer receive any further updates and download the application. We apologize for the inconvenience," noted the company.

Microsoft has struggled to keep the attention of developers, including big boys like Spotify, which has led to the downfall of the mobile operating system.
