Spotify has suspended its music download store and is no longer giving users the option to buy and keep music.
Pocket-Lint discovered, when trying to buy a track, that the music streaming giant had shed the store, with the Swedes later claiming it was accommodating new features instead.
When attempting to 'get' a track, users are greeted with a pop-up message, reading: "We're no longer supporting new download purchases on Spotfy."
In a statement issued later on Friday, Spotify confirmed the move, but said that users with existing credits or gift cards will still be able to redeem them on music downloads.
In a statement the company said: "We recently updated Spotify to further simplify the service and pave the way for new features announced at the end of last year.
"In-app purchases aren't part of this update but we're not ruling out their return. Credits/gift cards already purchased are still redeemable."
The statement, of course, teases a return for the store if Spotify chooses to go in that direction, but it's not like the Swedes were making any great strides against iTunes or Amazon in the buy-to-own market.
