Friend Activity will not load

Friend Activity will not load

MacOS Mojave 10.14.6




I've had a recurring problem with my Spotify Application since early today in which my friend's activity 'failed to load.' As of present, I have attempted the following common troubleshooting options:

- Uninstalled and reinstalled the Application

- Toggled the Friend's Activity tab off and on

- Restarted the Application

- Rebooted the MacOS System

- Switched Internet Connection (can confirm my hotspot did not fix the issue)

- Attempted to change the host directory via the terminal, though this did not fix the problem

- Disconnected from Facebook and reconnected 

- Logged into Spotify using a different account (I can confirm that the friend's activity on that account does load).

The final troubleshooting step would lead me to think that this isn't a software issue, it is most likely an issue with my account itself. None of the steps has so far fixed this problem, though I am inclined to give it time as it may potentially fix itself. Even so, is there a short-term fix for my situation as I have tried everything?

I'm sure this issue has been resolved in that there is a general solution to it. My friend activity eventually worked without any action taken, so it's most likely a system error on my end.

Hey @odi,


Thanks for reaching out about this.


Can you let us know if the friend activity works normally if you log in with a different account?


Also, for everyone experiencing this, can you tell us the rough number of friends you have on Spotify?
