The policy change requested access to pictures on mobile devices, phone contacts, voice controls, and location information - but Spotify justified the changes.
Users are able to choose which images they choose with Spotify, and have control over how the images are stored and used. The location identification is to help personalize recommendations, along with share information about trending music in a user's area. Spotify might include voice controls so it's easier to control playlists, and isn't interested in accessing a user's microphone without permission.
