Cannot play songs after updating to macOS Catalina

Visitor

I am able to open the Spotify desktop client but not able to play any music after I hit the play button. The strange thing is the playback slider is moving but no music is playing on my headphones.

 

I have restarted the client, restarted my computer and also done a clean reinstall of the client, but to no avail.

 

I managed to determine that it is a Spotify client issue alone as I am able to play audio from YouTube and even the Spotify web player on my browser.

 

Please assist, thanks in advance!

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

 

I'd also suggest following the steps from this Spotify Answer.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!
