Spotify Client crashes when adding a directory to local files [Linux]

Operating System

Pop!_OS 20.04 (Linux, seems to happen on all distributions)

 

My Question or Issue

So, it seems downloading the client with no update from https://www.spotify.com/se/download/linux/b/ and using the Debian / Ubuntu repo works fine when adding a local files directory, but when I download the Snap & Flatpak version of the client the whole program crashes when trying to add a local files directory. This seems to be an issue with Spotify itself since I've tried this as well on a Manjaro install with the same issue. 

 

EDIT: I don't know if this happens on other desktop enviornments other than GNOME since it's the only DE I've used Spotify on

Yeah, I think the update has messed something up cause a few days ago this was not happening for me as well.

I'm having the same problem here running Linux Mint 19.3 (with Cinnamon DE), running the latest client from Spotifys own repository.

 

Happens on both my laptop and desktop (running same OS). So it truly seems like an error on Spotifys side.
