My Question or Issue

 Spotify for desktop has been giving me the following issues for the past while (more than 2 weeks):
- Friend Activity: "Hmm, the Friend Feed failed to load."
- Recently Played: "Nothing here yet."
- Daily Mix: No daily mixes unless I use Spotify on my iPhone 6s
- Stations: No stations "Your stations will appear here."

Basically the app's features do not work on my Macbook however music plays when prompted through search or from my playlists set up prior to the app giving these errors.

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

Hi Loxer

I uninstalled Spotify then reinstalled it and the problem is still there.

I am running macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6 and Spotify
