Spotify app gets more buggy the longer I use it.


Spotify app gets more buggy the longer I use it.

Casual Listener






Macbook mid 2010

Operating System

Mac OS 10 (Sierra)

My Question or Issue:

I've been using Spotify for a while now, in lieu of Apple Music, and I've had the same problem happen for a long time:

I install the app, it works fine for 1-2 weeks, then it becomes increasingly buggier and buggier as it goes on.

Slow start-ups, music not playing, getting "this track can't be played right now" and apps like discord not showing that i'm listening to spotify.

I re-install the app, the app works perfectly, and 1-2 weeks later it happens again.

Is there anything I can do to fix this problem without having to reinstall and configure the app every week or so?

Hey, thanks for reaching out.

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 reinstallation of the app. Just follow the steps here.

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!
