Spotify Says an Apple TV App Isn’t Coming Anytime Soon

There’s an Apple Music app on Apple TV 4, but what about Spotify? Will there ever be a tvOS app for the streaming music service?

Apple Music’s biggest competitor has noted on GitHub (via App Advice), they have “down prioritized” a Spotify tvOS app, saying “you should not expect a release supporting it any time soon. I’m sorry about that,” according to Samuel Erdtman, Product Owner at Spotify.

There’s no word why Spotify has changed its stance on a tvOS app, when the iOS app is widely available. For Spotify, and other streaming music services, the name of the game is to offer music from any device, no matter where you are. The lack of Apple TV 4 support definitely seems like a strange one.

Anyone out there waiting for Spotify to launch on tvOS?
