Every time I see a BlackBerry, I want one. Best phone I've ever used for the things where you mainly buy a phone for. Still, now that I've had a couple of iPhones, you start to enjoy a few of the luxuries that it offers. The main one I love is Spotify. Can anyone tell me whether it works sufficiently on a Classic?

If you want to have a BlackBerry phone or you already have one, you definitely will wonder is Spotify on BlackBerry? As a smart mobile phone, it should be compatible with the Spotify app. But as the users of BlackBerry phones keep shrinking, Spotify has stopped updating on BlackBerry. Though you can install the older version of Spotify, you'll have to bear with its buggy performance and missing new features.

In the following parts, I'm going to show you how to download Spotify for BlackBerry phones and a top trick to play Spotify songs unlimitedly on BlackBerry without Premium.

How to Download Spotify for BlackBerry

Can you install Spotify on your BlackBerry phone? Yes, but it depends on what OS are you using. Now I'll show you how to get Spotify on different versions of your BlackBerry OS.

Spotify App for Older BlackBerry OS(before 10):

If your BlackBerry OS is 5,6 or any version before 10, you can download the native Spotify app on your system. But the downside of this app is that it's stopped updating and sometimes it could be laggy loading the content.

Spotify Android App for BlackBerry OS(10 or later):

If you're using BlackBerry 10 OS Version and later, you can now install Android .apk files third through party application stores or sources onto the BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

This can be done on the smartphone by following these steps:

1. Swipe from the top and tap on Settings, or locate the Settings application and open it.

2. Tap on App Manager.

3. Tap on Installing Apps.

4. Enable the Allow Apps from Other Sources to be Installed setting, this allows the smartphone to invoke an internal APK installer.

5. Connect to an Android application source to complete the installation of the APK application on the smartphone.

Where to get the Spotify APK file?

Basically, there're two ways you can find a Spotify APK file and install it on your BlackBerry. The first one is through APK downloaders, as known as the app stores. One of the best-established is Amazon Appstore. There you can find the latest version of Spotify.

The other way is through other web-based app stores, you'll be able to install the Spotify app without having to install a specialist app, and this is often described as "sideloading".

Sideloading is easier and more convenient than downloading Spotify through authoritative app stores, but it also has some potential risks. Your phone may get hacked by apps from unknown sources.

Can Spotify Android run perfectly on BlackBerry?

Well, it varies depending on which BlackBerry phone you're using. Some Classic users usually complain about the Spotify app is slow and occasionally crashes at a black screen. But since Spotify has stopped supporting the BlackBerry OS system, there's no way to fix all these problems.
