How to update spotify automatically?

Is there a way in self service to update spotify automatically. Or at the very least package/script the policy to always pull and install the latest version?

Yeah, I am trying to figure this out too. How would we go about doing this? It prompts users for the admin login each time Spotify is launched to update. How can we allow the user to auto update?

I have this question also. Students are always coming in for a password when Spotify updates. Can it be added to Patch Management?

Would really love to have this as well.

I stopped allowing the app. They can use the web browser player and leave me out of it.

Can't we modify a .plist or something ?

Gonna have to plug AutoPKG again:

autopkg search spotify

----                        ----                  ----

Then you can use a tool like JSS Importer to automatically update your packages/patch your fleet with automation.

@tlarkin Do you have a decent guide you recommend to get AutoPKG working properly?

iOS
Go to Settings.
Tap iTunes & App Store.
Switch App Updates on. Android
Open the Google Play Store.
Search Spotify.
Tap the three dots in the top right.
Check Auto-update.
But sometimes I do not want to update it too often since I need to convert Spotify to MP3 with tools like TunesKit Spotify Music Converter.
