Spotify joins Linux’s app packing format Snap

Canonical has revealed that Spotify is now available as a ‘Snap’, the universal Linux app packaging format.

Launching as a Snap enables users to enjoy Spotify natively on all Linux services, including Linux Mint, Manjaro, Debian, OpenSUSE, Solus, and Ubuntu.

Jamie Bennett, vice-president of engineering, devices and IoT at Canonical. “In launching their own Snap, Spotify has ensured that their users in the Linux ecosystem are now able to enjoy the latest version of their leading music streaming application as soon as it’s released regardless of which distribution they are using.

“We’re glad to welcome Spotify to the Snaps ecosystem and look forward to unveiling more leading Snaps in 2018.”
