Spotify Stops Any Further App Submissions Amid Release of New Mobile SDKs

Spotify Stops Any Further App Submissions Amid Release of New Mobile SDKs
Spotify
 
 

Spotify has put a stop to any further application ownership. Its apps submission closure may surprise many but it has its own reasons behind the sudden decision it has taken. Spotify wants to release new mobile SDKs and has plans to extend web API.

About three years ago, Spotify began its app platform which was a source of great inspiration for many. Among the long list of apps it gathered within its ambit are: Last.fm, musiXmatch, Rolling Stone, Soundrop and Tunewiki. 

These were a bunch of truly shining applications that simply shook the world with their radiance and resplendence. There have been several other offers in recent times where partners and sidekicks have tried to integrate their services with Spotify. But it is no go. 

Spotify states that ever since the launch of Spotify apps, "Partners have been asking us for a cheaper and easier way to own a presence inside Spotify and developers would like more ways to integrate Spotify with their own applications. Pair that with the growing importance of mobile and we realized we needed to adapt. As a result, as of this week we will not be accepting any new submissions for Spotify apps for release in the App Finder." 

Spotify has ended the offer and forgone its app hunting activities. And the growth of mobile phones has further caused this choice to be taken instead of the application alternative. The non-acceptance of app submissions is a final option that has to be availed for obvious reasons. 

App Finder, which is Spotify’s directory for third-party applications, is operational within its own structure. Existing apps will remain extant though. It is new apps that are being shunted out. The mobile SDK that Spotify has kept under wraps so far will be coming on the scene soon. 

Spotify states that in "the coming months they will be adding new features for partners in Spotify and expanding the features of our Web API, as well as releasing new mobile SDKs."

It may be a move towards a more open-ended web. It looks like some things worked way back in the good old days but they don’t work any longer. That was then and this is now. The real thing which is crucial here is the shift to a mobile platform. 

 

This change may be slightly jarring in its effect but it is a necessary evil as well. After all, stagnancy is such a bad choice that it is better to face the chaos of rapid change than sink into the doldrums. That may be the actual reason for this paradigm transformation which is occurring in Spotify’s app platform. Spotify is looking to get dressed for success which lies in its future. And it is willing to pay the price as well.
