Came across my old iPod, trying to make good use out of it and so far its a FAIL
So around the time I was about to get married, my then fiancee, got me an apple iPod touch. I did not have much music in digital format at the time, but I did make good use it in other ways. I used it for mostly productivity, organization and to manage my personal business. It was great for what I needed it to do. Also the odd time when I was not working I used it for listening to podcasts, as well as watching Legal VOD content and other BDU provided apps.
After getting married, I kinda lost tabs on my iPod and kinda put it aside somewhere in my basement, fast forward to the end of 2019 to now, I finally came across it while cleaning, I charged it up and factory reset it and was now hoping to use it to stream my spotify music on it, and so I tried to install the app, it tells me its not compatible. okay, so my next option, I have a ton of purchased music on my Google Play Music library, so I was hoping to use the ipod to play it, Try to install Google Play music, it tells me its not supported. Damnit, I then try to install Youtube and Youtube music so I can try their streaming services, then I find that both those apps are not supported on this iPod. Argh! at this point I'm like what the heck, Theres absolutely nothing wrong with this iPod, i kept it in very good condition, but for some reason Apple and the App Designers have decided to discontinue the apps that I would get the most enjoyment from. Ohh well, I guess if electronics surpass the shelf life, then the companies do these little tricks to get you to buy new hardware.
