Spotify unilaterally installs on Windows 10 and 11

Users across networks have reported as having upgraded their computer they found Spotify installed on their storage drive. That said, Spotify’s reviews in the Microsoft Store have been filled with criticism and one-star ratings, claiming to have it uninstalled at the time.


But the real surprise comes with Spotify automatically running on startup. That is, it doesn’t just install it as if it were bloatware, but it is also automatically enabled to run when Windows starts.

In this case there are many doubts as to what exactly happened so that it is installed this way. It should be noted that it is not the responsibility of Spotify, as the App Store is wholly owned by Microsoft. Until now, the company has already used this mechanism to unilaterally install other applications such as Candy Crush.
