Insane 157% CPU usage for an app sitting idle

Insane 157% CPU usage for an app sitting idle


there is a big issue with the app.

On my pc - an Apple MBP - the app is just open, idle and the helper is sucking 157% of CPU making the pc to heat up and the fan to spin increasingly loud.

What does the helper do?

I'm wondering if it is safe to use and/or whether I should report this somewhere else.


From the posts not too long ago it looks like I'm not the first person experiencing this again. Is this an old bug coming back again?


For the time being I'm sadly not using Spotify anymore for the reasons described above and I switched to another music service until/if this is resolved.


Let us know what I can do.
