Random noises on mac

Random noises on mac


I get random buzzing noises during the songs I play. A bit like an old radio that is not tuned well... I tried to restart the app, but it does not help. Any ideas?

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!

Are you using internal speakers, or external speakers?  I had an issue with Spotify inserting random buzzing sounds into songs, and it was due to my hardware setup.  I had the audio routing through HDMI to an external monitor with speakers.  It turned out to be something with that set up.  I plugged external speakers directly into my MacBook Pro using the headphone jack, and the issue disappeared.
