Spotify will support AirPlay 2 in the future, after the streaming music service issued a correction on a representative's claim development of the feature was being paused.
On Friday, a Spotify forum post about AirPlay 2 blew up, as it appeared the company was delaying work on adding support to its service. In an update on Saturday, Spotify now claims it will still support AirPlay 2 in the future.
The original forum post involved a Spotify representative advising work on the addition was paused "for now" due to compatibility issues with the audio driver. According to the representative, Spotify apparently saw it as a "bigger project that we won't be able to complete in the forseeable future."
In Saturday's forum post update, a response attempted to apologize for confusion caused to its users. "To clarify, Spotify will support AirPlay 2," the message reads, with further advice that further updates would be posted when they became available.
The status of the feature has also been reverted from "Case Closed" to "Live Idea."
The forum post backtrack is the latest incident in Spotify's attempts to play nice with the operator of its main rival, Apple Music. As well as complaining about unfairness in treatment between the two services by Apple, Spotify has also been slow to implement new features aimed at Apple users.
