It is probably related to https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/spotify-does-not-play-audio/3266

 

I will write again when the fix has been deployed if you want to try again.

With the upstream Pulseaudio fix for the snap base runtime, new versions of the Spotify snap based on it are working now. For me at least.

The new runtime is used from version 1.0.72.117.g6bd7cc73-35 (6) of the Spotify snap. This is currently in the snap release channel candidate. To test it, you will have to switch to track that snap release channel by running:

snap install spotify --candidate

Once that version has been promoted to the stable channel, it should not be necessary to track the candidate channel any more and you can switch back to the stable channel if you want.

You can get an overview over the different channels by running:

snap info spotify


Thanks for supporting snap to distribute your software!
