Users have taken to social media platforms like Twitter to threaten to cancel their subscriptions if the new policy is not pared back, with some declaring that they have already pulled the trigger. And it’s not just an angry mob of internet commenters overreacting.
Markus Persson (aka Notch), the creator of the enormously successful video game “Minecraft,” declared this morning that he had already canceled his subscription due to the changes.
This high-profile stand prompted Daniel Ek, the founder and CEO of Spotify, to jump in and try to defend the changes, particularly the app’s requests to access your photo and GPS data.
It seems Persson remained unconvinced by Ek’s explanation, and he joins the ranks of a growing number of disgruntled Spotify users.
