Artist pages don't load

Solved!

Artist pages don't load

All of a sudden Artist pages refuse to load. I click on "View artist". After a couple seconds of loading, it says "Something went wrong - Have another go? Try again". 9/10 artist pages are like this. 1/10 seem to randomly work.

 

Artist pages are still functional on the Windows app.

I tried restarting my phone. What else can be done to solve this issue?

I expect to receive a refund for this month if the issue isn't resolved soon. It makes Spotify essentially unusable for me if I'm not in front of my home PC.

Fixed in new version, update the app if you're still having the issue: https://community.spotify.com/t5/iOS-iPhone-iPad/Spotify-search-on-iOS-not-working/m-p/4916102#M1204...

very poor communication, Spotify. why do official forums even exist if you're not even gonna post when an update breaks the app for all mobile users. smh.

Hey there @garyglas,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community.

 

As a first step, try logging out, restarting your device, and logging back in.

 

If that doesn't do the trick, it's worth running a clean reinstall of the app by following these steps. This can be helpful to get rid of any cached files that might be causing trouble.

 

If the issue persists, could you let us know the make, model and OS version of the device where you're having this issue? We'd also like to know if it happens on any other devices where you use the app.

 

Additionally, let us know if that happens when using a different connection, like mobile data or a different WiFi network.

 

Keep us posted. We'll be on the lookout.

Hey @thedeadone,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

Can you please check your Windows hosts file for any lines containing Spotify as described in this guide? Also, does the same thing happen when you use the desktop app?

 

Keep us posted.

i do not use desktop app to laggy and buggs out  i use the spotify web stie on firefox browser so that should not need me to deal with a host file

 

Hey @thedeadone,

 

Thank you for keeping in contact and for the clarification.

 

To continue investigating this case, would you mind trying with a different browser like Google Chrome to see if it makes any difference?

 

If not, could you try in on an incognito/private window to see if the issue persists?

 

Lastly, include in your next response the OS version you're currently running on your PC to have a better look at the issue.

 

We'll be on the lookout.

Hi.**bleep** has been going on for two days now. None of the solutions suggested here work. My OS is Windows 7, I use two browsers: Firefox and Chrome. I can only access Playlists from the entire Library.

Having this problem now on mac, has had it for a few days.

Hey there,

Thanks for posting in the thread!

@popipoptop - just to check, do you notice any difference after clearing stored cache from the app? Once it's done, try logging out from the app and back in again twice in a row. As odd as this may sound, this should resync your account info.

Another option is to do a clean reinstall. This will clear cache too, as well as ensure that you're running the latest app version.

 

If that doesn't do the trick, can you let us know the model & OS version of your Mac, along with the Spotify version?

Keep us in the loop!
