Spotify is hard at work on 'major' update for its Android app

65

Sources close to Spotify have informed us that the company is hard at work on a "major" new version of its Android app. While we couldn't learn any more details, the news should delight the legions of Spotify Premium users flooding the company's support forums (and even in our forums here and here) with complaints about the app, which hasn't been updated since November 2011. On many phones, users claim, the app is essentially unusable because of bugs, glitches, and crashing — especially so on devices running Android 4.0. In fact, the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S aren't even officially supported by the company on its outdated "Mobile" app page. According to Google Play, Spotify for Android has been downloaded between five and ten million times total — which is a whole lot of people to leave out in the cold.
