Since today, I have the same problem. I have a MacBook Air and my computer usage is on 100%. I tried to reinstall the app, this is not working. Also trying to use the private session or enabling the hardware acceleration can not fix the problem.
I've been having the same recently. I thought it might have been something else, but then realised the Spotify app pinned at around 100% in activity monitor when it was first opened and for the duration of it being open, even without music being played. I've tried reinstalling multiple times with no success.
Same here: MacBook Air, brand new. CPU-usage near 100%, fan is screaming continuously. Clean install doesn't help.
Yes, same issue here ever since the last update. My music won't even be playing but the fans are going crazy I'm having to force quit the app in order to cool down my Mac
Same here, Macbook Pro 2019. It gets boiling hot and the fan goes crazy and the CPU spikes up. I've reinstalled it as well but it's still the same.
Thanks for your patience so far.
