I have a friend on Spotify, she has no Facebook but I know her Spotify username.
I also have no Facebook.
I managed to subscribe to a playlist of hers (after she gave me its URL).
Likewise, she managed to subscribe to a playlist of mine.
I am unable to find her (I searched for "spotify:user:[her username]"). I get a "Load user error" and it says "Unknown user".
I am also unable to add her if I right-click her username on her playlist and choose "Add this person": nothing happens at all when I try that.
If I go on her playlist and copy the Spotify URI, it shows as "spotify:user:[her username]:playlist:[her playlist code]", so I am 100% sure her username is correct.
Likewise, she added a playlist of mine but is unable to find nor add me in any way.
What are we doing wrong?
Is there any way around this issue?
If it helps, I am on Windows 8 Enterprise, using Spotify version 0.8.5.1356.gd1d40f3a
Thanks in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
She told me she managed to find and add me earlier!
She said she just created a public empty list called "Bogus".
She even sent me that list, and I can see it in my Inbox.
But I am still unable to find or add her profile from my Windows client 😞
Does it matter that I am a Free user? Or that I joined Spotify only yesterday?
It shouldn't make a difference what subscription plan you are on.
So just to confirm, when you click on her username in your inbox you still get a user Load Error?
I know it is a bit of a pain, but you might want to try a clean reinstallation of the client to see if that improves this, don't worry your playlists and account will be waiting for you when you sign in again.
Interestingly, viewing her profile this morning I can see her new playlist and you as a Follower of her profile meaning are following her (follow is a feature of the new client if you don't have it yet), and you have subscribed to her playlist.
