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

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

Does anyone have a workaround for this issue?

Looks like it's working now with the latest version of Spotify

Both Snap & Flatpak versions still crashing a few seconds after starting. Has been an issue for months now, on both Xubuntu 21.10 and Xubuntu 22.04.
