My Question or Issue

Hello! With the recent update to MacOS Catalina, the screensaver now pauses Spotify. I don't remember this happening before the update. Perhaps I'm missing a stupid quick fix here. I appreciate any questions or ideas you have. Thank you!

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!

Hey @ggundlachsj,

 

Could you check the Power Saver in System Preferences?

 

Try to enable the Screen Saver manually while Spotify is playing.

 

Keep me posted 🙂
