My Question or Issue

Spotify Desktop crashes whenever I am listening on another device and then click the "Connect to device" button on my MacBook Pro M1. I attached the crash log. Seems to be related to similar issues with MacBooks with M1. Is there any update on when there will be a native version of the Spotify Client or if it is even actively worked on?

Chiming in here to say this has also been happening to me for months. It doesn't happen every time, but nearly. It makes it very difficult to switch output between my computer and my sonos speakers.

Take care!

Hey @moterink @denyinghipster 

 

Spotify has posted an update about M1 Mac support here:
M1 Mac support is now in beta 

 

Updated on 2021-07-01

Hi everyone,


We have been working hard backstage on this and are happy to announce that we now have a Beta version of our app available. It features many compatibility improvements and optimizations for the new Apple architecture.

 

You can download this Beta app from here. It would be great if you do so and then post feedback on your experience here.

 

Please note that as a Beta, some unexpected behavior might still occur. We'll use all the feedback and info we get from you to tweak and improve your Spotify experience. And if everything works great we’d love to hear that too!

 

To install the Beta app, double click the .dmg file and then drag the app to your Applications folder, replacing the version you may have installed now. To go back to the regular version, please download and install it from https://spotify.com/download.

 

We can’t wait to hear from you and learn how your experience was. Take care!

UPDATE: Apple Silicon Macs (M1 chip) are now supported in the latest desktop Mac version

 

Spotify has posted an update about Apple Silicon Macs (M1 chip) support here:

 

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Implemented-Ideas/Desktop-Add-support-for-Apple-Silicon-ARM64-on-Ma...

 

"Thank you all for bringing your feedback to the Community Idea Exchange and participating in this Beta test!

 

Your input has been invaluable and helped us tweak the app to make full use of the new CPU architecture.

 

We're happy to announce that the app is now out of Beta and can be downloaded from our website. You should automatically get the correct version for your Mac's CPU and all updates will be automatic as well, just the way it was in the past.

 

This idea is now officially implemented! Thanks once more for all your votes and posts.

 

Happy listening! 🎶"
