Hi I recently got Spotify premium and it works fine on everything except Windows Phone. Is this meant to happen? If so, does anyone recommend any apps that let you download music?—User from Reddit

Back in 2017, Spotify had confirmed the Spotify app for Windows Phone had been placed into maintenance mode, which means Spotify team would not update the app on Windows Phone anymore. And they also announced that the maintenance mode status would be ended in 2019, and by then Windows Phone users will not get the Spotify app with full functionality.

So even if you have subscribed to Spotify’s Premium plan, you still can not download songs on your Windows Phone because this feature has been shut down by the Spotify team. Besides, many users have reported other feature losses on their Spotify Windows Phone app like no result will be shown in the search bar and the Spotify Connect can not be used anymore.

But don’t worry, if you still want to play Spotify songs, check out the following part. We’ll give you a full guide to play Spotify songs on your Windows Phone without Premium.

Why Spotify Stop Supporting Windows Phone?

Can you still get Spotify on Windows Phone? Yes, if you can put up with all those functionality losses and the buggy API which almost makes the app unusable. But why Spotify no longer updates the app on Windows Phone? The reason is obvious, because the phone is not popular anymore.

Windows Phone was first launched in 2010 and it gained an estimated user base of 6.9 million people by the year 2010. But it didn’t use an Android system which later became one of the the most popular systems in the world. And in 2012 Google stopped making its apps for Windows Phone. Windows Phone users could not use Google apps like YouTube, Maps, G-mail, etc. And from then on Windows Phone started to collapse.

Spotify apparently won’t make so much effort to support a product that’s no longer popular. And so it finally shut down the update on Windows Phone in 2017.

But by the year of 2020, Windows Phone still has about 1 million users worldwide, how can these customers use the most popular music streaming platform on their Windows Phone? In the next part, we’ll provide you a solution.
