The latest iteration of the Spotify Desktop for Mac is painfully slow slow slow... Spotify is basically a specialized internet browser, as every account detail is pulled from their server (except for local files). It literally takes 3-4 minutes to resolve itself to be playable. Every other app on my computer flies open and I can use within seconds (internet enabled or not). Spotify used to be that way until the latest iteration. I've been with Spotify for over 3 years and haven't had a significant issue, but now this sluggishness is making me want to cancel. I don't want to wait 3-4 minutes to listen to a 3-4 minute song... that's ridiculous. Why am I paying for Premium when the app takes so long to load? That's not a premium, that's a deterrent. It seems like a joke.
Please stop making the app bulkier.
As a web developer, this is unacceptable. The web apps I build would never pass bar if they were this slow, and I deal with massive databases spread across many countries with 10 million users plus.
I've traced the packets and it's definitely on your servers end. My packet requests are lightning fast (Fiber)... your servers response time is so sloooooooowwwwww... it's a bit sickening.
Man up and distribute your servers.
I'm going to give your service another month before I go back to Apple Music and their **bleep** poor user interface. Come on... service your premium customer better.
