Unable to open spotify on my Samsung S5 since the last update.

Solved!

Unable to open spotify on my Samsung S5 since the last update.

The app loads into the new feature "running" window, then when I tap done or wait about 5 seconds the app crashes. I've tried downloading the newest beta and reinstalling the app multiple times with 2 different facebook accounts and nothing works, I also tried removing both the sim-card and the memory card on a fresh install of the app with no success.. This all started about a week ago when the newest update rolled out (Saturday or sunday I think...)  btw: I was on a plane trip and auto-updated the app in Sweden with the phone in the Swedish time-zone so I don't know if that somehow messed it up? 

I've already lost 1.5 weeks of paid spotify premium; any tips on what I could do? 

Phone: Samsung S5 'SM-G900F' running Android 5.0 with kernel version 3.4.0-4209230
Current Spotify Version: 4.0.0783 Beta.
Spotify Free/Premium: Premium.


Thanks.

This issue is already under investigation.

You can download a slightly older version of the app.

You can check this ongoing issue report for more information. ^^
