Hi. I have the Premium Family plan and I am using the Spotify on a late 2013 iMac.
It turns out it is simply impossible to count on the app. Sometimes is goes black, sometimes the search doesn't work, sometimes the music stops playing all of a sudden. Each day there is a different problem. What does not change is: it is impossible to use the desktop app. Why is that?
Another thing that does not change: it is always extremely annoying using (or trying to use) the desktop app.
Before, It was terrible. I updated it and now it's even worse. None of the solutions here solved my problem. I pay monthly for an app I can barely use. I'm seriously thinking about canceling it.
Please, guys: get better.
