Spotify keeps crashing on my iMac with El Capitan.

Spotify keeps crashing on my iMac with El Capitan.


I am trying to install Spotify on my iMac (Mid 2007), running OS X El Capitan, v. 10.11.6.

Somehow when I try to install it (by downloading from, I get the "Spotify" app.
While running it shows the download bar and says "Installing Spotify".
Then Spotify opens, and it says "login".
And there as soon as I press "Continue with Facebook" (or if I enter my user name and password spotify), the screen (Spotify) closes.
Any idea on how to handle that?

We recommend that you reinstall Spotify from here instead of the link shared on this thread. 


Once you install the app, restart your device and let us know if the said behavior persists.

If you experience a sudden glitch in Spotify followed by the “Application not responding” message, perform a clean reinstall of the client. It can be due to an overloaded cache.
