I'm running macOS 10.15 Catalina Beta.
When I try to install Spotify I see the following error:
Is this a Spotify issue or a Catalina issue?

Catalina requires all apps that are signed with developer IDs to be 'notarized' by Apple. In the absence of an updated version from the developer, you can try the following:
Right-click and select "Open". This may bring up the same dialog, but with an option to Open the file anyway.
You can get round this by removing the quarantine Extended Attribute on the file:
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/file
Naturally, this bypasses Apple's security precautions which exist to stop maliciously altered software from running.
System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> check Allow
$ sudo spctl --master-disable
But if the
Move To Trash issue still exists. This is because Apple has removed TNT certification. You may use codesign to resign it:
$ codesign --sign - --force --deep <app-path>
codesign sometimes doesn't work for the notarization issue recently, so you should use
xattr to remove the quarantine:
$ xattr -d com.apple.quarantine <app-path>
I have got a conclusion. When installing app from 3rd party on different macOS, you can try different ways when it comes up to
Move to Trash issue. Meanwhile, I think this is a common issue for 3rd party apps, so you may change the title question to something that contains
Cannot be opened or
Move to trash as well.
