[Mac] Spotify crashes on launch - macOS 10.14 Mojave Beta 1

Spotify Mac app is crashing on launch. I tried reinstalling it which allowed it to open, but as soon as I tried to play anything it crashed then continued to crash any subsequent launch. I hope this is a quick fix as I can't listen to music at work now!

Solved!

If you go to System Preferences->Security/Privacy->Privacy->Accessibility->Unlock->Plus sign->Applications->Spotify->Done, this will allow it to work

Note that I also had BarRemote (mac app store) installed, and you need to force quit that from Activity Monitor otherwise it will crash spotify

Thanks for those suggestions!

 

Turns out I had a similar situation as you. I have a program called SpotMenu installed to show what I'm listening to in the menu bar. Quitting this solved the issue!

Oh don't get me wrong, I was prepared for this sort of thing when I installed the beta. Been a developer for many years so I'm well aware of the issues new OS versions can cause inadvertantly.

I also expected something to go wrong and not upset that it doesn't work but would love to find a workaround. I also didn't find Spotify in the microphone section in system preferences...

Add Psotify to the Application Data List and it works.

i got it working on Mojave Beta 1, but it asks for Microphone Permission in the new Privacy settings. It was force closing because it had not been granted permissions. For some reason it is asking for microphone permissions in order to playback audio. When enabled it plays music, when disabled, it cannot play song.

Ditto from me, I've checked under Privacy > Microphone and Spotify doesn't appear in the list.
