Can't Connect with Facebook

Casual Listener

When I try to attach my Facebook account to my Spotify account, I get the following message:

 

"Connect to Facebook

 

Sorry there has been a temporary error, please try again later."

 

On Facebook, when I go to App Settings -> Spotify -> Edit, I get this error:

 

"Invalid permission specified

The app requested an invalid permission: whitelisted_offline_access"
 
I believe I can't use the web client like I would like to until this is resolved, and that would be my preffered option for my desktop (Linux-based).

My Facebook and Spotify are connected but I get the same error message when I try to change my privacy settings for Spotify.

My Facebook and Spotify are also (theoretically) connected but I get that same error message when I try to change my Spotify app settings in Facebook.

 

"The app requested an invalid permission: whitelisted_offline_access"

I also can't see what tracks I've shared with others on Facebook through Spotify. (like I used to see a week ago inside Facebook 'Messages')

Hey guys 🙂 

 

I am going to escalate this as an issue to the Spotify community team, would anyone be able to post a link to a screenshot of this error (since I can't seem to reproduce)? 

Also, are you all using Facebook to login or are you using dedicated Spotify accounts which are linked to Facebook?

 

Thanks

I have a dedicated account.

 

1. http://db.tt/CHpuclH8

 

and when i click on "Edit"

 

2. http://db.tt/1KxSCREG

 

edit: It shows "connected" there, but songs will not share, playlists not updated etc. ... weird behaviour
