Can't download Spotify app to Mac desktop

Can't download Spotify app to Mac desktop


So for some reason, Spotify will not download onto my Mac desktop; below is all the things that I have tried and did not work:

  • Clean re-install
  • Updated my Mac
  • cleared room in storage
  • Downloaded and tried the two different installments
  • Multiple re-starts

And every time, I always end up with the Spotify installer app bouncing on my dashboard, then it stops, and when I right-click it, it says, "Application not responding."


Is there anything else I could try?

Hi @MadCalgary!


Here's something you can try out:

  1. Open Finder on your mac and click Go > Library (if you don't have hidden folders enabled, press the option key first and it should appear).
  2. Go to Cache, look for a folder that contains Spotify in its name and delete it.
  3. Reinstall the app.

In case the issue persists, feel free to share a short screen recording which shows what's happening on your end so we can have a direct look.


Keep us posted. Cheers!
