Hey! Welcome to the community :)

 

Do you get any error messages when you try and connect? Posting them here would be a great help! ;)

Also are you running any security or firewall software? Some programs automatically block Spotify because it uses peer-to-peer connections, so you will need to add it as an exception in your software.

Hey all, try restarting your internet connection (disconnect/reconnect wifi, pull the ethernet out etc).

Then open spotify again. If that doesn't work, reinstall :)

i actually had the same problem than i looked at what peerblock was blocking and it was demolishing all spotify ip addresses so you will have to alter your lists if using this program

um, i had the same problem which persisted for more than 2 weeks. my webplayer seemed to work fine but the desktop app wouldnt connect even though my internet was fine.

 

i think i just fixed it by running spotifyhelper.exe and spotifywebhelper.exe which i found in the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Data folder.

 

not sure what caused them to stop running. Please reply here if it works for anyone else having this issue
