Yesterday we reported that according to a Spotify customer service representative, it was suggested that the company will be ending support for the app on Windows Phone devices. It turns out that the report was not true, thanks to the folks at MSPoweruser who has since reached out to Spotify to clarify.

According to Spotify’s reply, the company has denied that they will be dropping support for Windows Phone. “Our main goal at Spotify is to offer the best music experience on the market, covering all platforms. To clarify our recent information regarding the Windows Phone experience, we will continue supporting the Windows Phone 8.1 experience moving forward and we are actually improving our support for Windows 10 in our coming update 5.2, which will be available starting today.”

So was the rep wrong in this case? Turns out that he was and according to Spotify, the rep was misinformed and that there is no truth to his statement. According to the rep’s previous statement, it reads, “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.”

In any case we suppose this is good news for those with Windows Phone handsets, so you guys can go ahead and keep using the app without having to worry about Spotify no longer supporting it on the Windows Phone platform.
