Spotify is taking down the third-party apps that provide premium for free.
Spotify is one of the largest music-streaming service available, and to access all the features it provides the Premium subscription for the users. Third-party developers worked on the app to get the premium features for free and published the modded APKs in the web. After years, Spotify has announced that they are blocking down the subscribers who use unauthorized applications to use the premium services of the platform. Yes, the company has decided to take tough step towards the subscribers who violate the rules.
There a lot of pirated APKs available in the web but the company has said that it will take down all of them as soon as possible. They sent out a warning messages to users who used any of the pirated apps. The warning message reads,
We detected abnormal activity on the app you are using so we have disabled it. Don’t worry – your Spotify account is safe.
To access your Spotify account, simply uninstall any unauthorized or modified version of Spotify and download and install the Spotify app from the official Google Play Store. If you need more help, please see our support article on Reinstalling Spotify.
If we detect repeated use of unauthorized apps in violation of our terms, we reserve all rights, including suspending or terminating your account.
Even if you still don’t stop using such unauthorised applications, the giant will completely disable or terminate your account without any confirmation. So if you really take care of your premium Spotify account, you have to explore the app through the Authorised applications only.
Furthermore, Spotify has also added that, “Ad-Supported Service is a strong and viable stand-alone product with considerable long-term opportunity for growth.”
Spotify will soon come up with an update regarding this issue and they might even keep such unauthorised application away from the authentication of the service.
