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.

Spotify put an update out today that fixed my issue. I did a direct download from Spotify and all seems to be working now!

Mojave is still in beta, isn't it? So why don't you report the issue to Apple instead?

Yes, Mojave is still in beta. Even so, the responsibility for fixing this lies with Spotify, not Apple.

 

My guess is most of those on this thread are probably Apple Developers anyway, it is our responsibility to make sure our apps are ready for the new releases ahead of their public release. This is why betas exist, so Spotify have time to address the issue.

It is in Beta and yes they do exist for DEVELOPERS TO HELP MAKE THE OS MORE USABLE FOR THE OTHERS!

You speak with great words for someone who knows little to nothing about the issue in hand. It's totally the opposite, most here do different things and "most" aren't working for Apple.

We know Spotify should fix the issues in hand, but it's not their fault that you are upgrading to a BETA software and expect for things to work flawlessly for you! They both warn users for BETA and one shouldn't use a BETA on it's daily driver and whine later that things aren't working.

In case you didn't know Spotify has a BETA program for their apps so you might sign up there if you want. They are testing things there before they get to you and everyone else.

It is up to both Apple and Spotify to fix it not just one of them and with 7 or 8 other updates it is a bit hard to address any freakin' issue that will come down the road from each BETA.

We are just reporting an issue we are experiencing in beta no need to be rude. We are aware that by having a beta it will crash and might not work. This thread isn't us complaining but more so trying to find a solution. 

 

Be nice, not rude.
