Spotify has agreed to allow the Pacemaker app to keep working with Spotify as it does now, while we transition into the new experience where music will come directly via our own licenses.
Some time ago, it was announced that third-party DJ applications will no longer have access to music via Spotify from July 1st. At Pacemaker we’ve been working on bringing music directly to the app via our own licenses, which will remove the need for a Spotify Premium subscription, making the Pacemaker experience better than ever.
Unfortunately licensing music is a mammoth task and it takes time. Spotify has kindly enough given us more time and so the Pacemaker app will keep working with Spotify as it does now while we transition into the new experience with music coming directly via our own licenses.
Once we transition to the new experience, if you’re a Spotify user, you’ll still be able to sync your playlists to Pacemaker so that you can easily mix with the music you love. Apple Music users will also be able to sync their playlists, which is the most requested feature to date. We’ll work to add support for more music streaming services post launch.
We’ll update you again as we get closer to our launch.
