Yup - The Spotify integration works over LTE as well. I was using that all that way up to Manchester and back yesterday without a hitch.
Here's the note about the temporary nature of it in the V10 release notes.
ah cool, good find. they didn't have time to write the code to handle subscriptions then. either way it's awesome, it means we can subscribe to it later
Not recieved my M3 yet but awaiting a Standard Plus - does this mean Spotify will be avalible (currently temporary, in the future paid subscription), on an M3 that just has the Partial Premium interior?
If so, that's great, I had all my music loaded onto a USB stick, not an ideal solution, I wanted to be able to use Spotify.
Amazing! I have a Spotify subscription and use it on a daily basis so super happy about that.The capability is there now on any SR+ with Partial Premium interior running V10 in the UK to use Spotify from the built in system but you need your own Spotify account to log in.
The theory is that the restriction is more tied to Premium Connectivity vs Partial Premium interior as there is a material ongoing cost to Tesla form the data costs involved in providing this over the inbuilt LTE connection.

Yeah figured this might happen - there was always talk of some kind of paid subscrption being introduced to cover the LTE data costs. As long as it's not extortionate i'd pay for it.
TBH - I think you're onto something with that. I've got a working theory about Tesla's seeming inability to manage subscriptions etc: They currently use Salesforce as their CRM which is powering all user management. When I was placing my order in store, my rep in the store mentioned offhandedly how much he was looking forward to their new system and moving away from Salesforce.
I asked him what he meant and he said that they were close to migrating to a new custom platform. I wonder if that new platform is a dependency for all of the user-based subscription options. I've tried wrangling Salesforce before and it's fairly brittle when it comes to integrating with other custom platforms.
Could be totally wrong but it does make sense...
