Hey @Bubily,

 

Thanks for letting me know :)

 

Could you try disabling Hardware Acceleration, you can do that from the Spotify option in the Menu Bar.

 

Also, if possible coud you try this in a new user account in your Mac?

 

Keep me posted.

I'm having the same issue with a MacBook Pro, 2016.

Hi there!

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 reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

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 next!

I tried already both reinstaling and restarting my machine. No dice.
