OS X: Spotlight keeps removing Spotify

I'm using Spotify 1.0.32.96.g3c8a06e6 on OSX 10.11.5 (15F34).

I've been seeing this problem for several months now – time and again. Spotify stops showing up when I hit `⌘ + <space>` I no longer see spotify in the list of apps as I type spotify.

The problem can be fixed by resetting the Spotlight index but its just a pain to keep doing that over and over again.

I'm suspecting this may be because of the way Spotify installs updates. It happens quite often.

Is the team aware of the issue? Is a fix planned? This makes the app quite a pain to use for me, especially because I use Spotlight for firing up every other application.

Hi @asheshambasta,

 

That's odd. Could you try doing a full reinstallation of the app, including removing your local cache/data files?

No it didn't. I have the problem yet again – although this time it happened after quite some time.

I'm surprised there aren't more people seeing this isssue.
