Music streaming platform Spotify has announced that it will start offering local support long after the launch of Macs with M1 processors.
Spotify has announced the release of a beta version of its app optimized for Macs with a new M1 processor. The company said there may be many errors in the beta version, but with feedback from users, these problems will be resolved and then the stable version will be available to users.
In the Mac family with an M1 processor, introduced about 8 months ago, developers had to optimize their apps to keep applications running smoothly. Although many developers have initiated this optimization and apple silicon support, this rate remains quite low in the entertainment industry.
With the launch of M1 Macs, Spotify users wanted the app to offer native support for the M1. A little late, the company finally returned to those requests. The music streaming platform announced the beta version of the app, saying it includes many compatibility improvements and optimizations for the new Apple architecture.
A beta version of the Spotify app for Macs with M1 processors is available here. The company has not yet shared a timeline for when the stable release will be released.
