For the past week or so my Spotify desktop app had been having an issue where songs would freeze a few seconds in so I decided to do a clean install per the instructions provided by Spotify (deleting cache, deleting the application, deleting the Spotify folder in App Support, and emptying my trash).
After downloading a new installer from Spotify.com, installing Spotify on my Mac, and logging in nearly nothing works on the desktop app. Firstly, the friend's activity tab constantly shows loading. Secondly, my liked songs don't appear (I checked on my phone and they still are there on my phone). Lastly, when I click play on a song in the browse tab or one I search for it won't play.
I'm on a 15' Macbook Pro 2018 and my OSX is fully up to date.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I believe the reason Spotify wasn't working was that it was being blocked by my home router's firewall. I just moved back to university and now Spotify works.
