My suggestion is that for new Cross version 4.0 we will get spotify or Apple Music or pulselocker for streaming music it will really put Cross on the top of DJ software.

Using streaming music for public is against the license by most providers.

So integration would main MixVibes could be held liable for providing this situation.

Also streaming audio is usually played via an audio buffer of seconds. Which means responsiveness is horrible as appx 5ms would be required.

And for bedroom DJs? Or to check how a song fit well in a DJ set before buying it?

It would be a feature offered by Cross and allowed by Spotify. The DJ is responsible for using or not this feature, not Mixvibes.

Algoriddim implements Spotify in Djay (and Spotify promote Djay for this integration). DJuced integrates Qobuz too in the last beta. What about Deezer, Google Play Music, Apple Music, Tidal, etc...?

Virtual DJ has its own store and Serato integrates Pulselocker (these 2 solutions are compliant with legal licences).

This basically is true. However if even 'just' being sued by one of the artists (or whoever involved) is a costly issue. Several $1000 for just sending a reply by a lawyer....

It wouldn't be the first time a software manufacturer is being sued for abuse by users.

The others you suggested have a commercial license given your description. So might cover the commercial use. Nevertheless be aware that it's not just one right. Artist(s), Producer, composer, distribution and more are involved by seperate laws.
