My Question or Issue

Hi,

 

So I have been struggling for a while, wanting to purchase spotify premium, but I am having some big issues with the web player (and similar for the desktop app). I don't have the ability to like songs (works fine on my android phone), and cannot make playlists, or even search for songs. For some outline of what this looks like, please see the attachment. Any thoughts? I have tried this on multiple browsers, deleted cookies/ cache, and still no luck. And for reference, my partner has no issues with their account on their computer/ phone.

 

Thanks for any help 🙂

Turns out I solved it with a bit more searching for one of my symptoms. It all came from my hosts file on windows having a block for spotify, for some reason -_-

 

Anyway, here is the solution for others:
