Strange red glitch appearing outside of my desktop Spotify


Strange red glitch appearing outside of my desktop Spotify


Plan - Premium

Country - USA

Device - 2017 5K Retina Display 27" iMac

Operating System - iOS Catalina 10.15


Any idea at all why, when I open Spotify sometimes, it would appear with this red translucent overlay around it??? I was viewing a photo in Photoshop below it and I find it strange the red halo is partly opaque, so you can see the programs underneath Spotify. 


It did eventually go away on its own, but I was curious why this might happen, and/or if anyone else has seen this on an iMac.

Hey there @caviesfan110


Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 

Most common issues can be fixed with a quick reinstall of the app. In some situations however, a clean (more thorough) reinstall of the app might be needed. This way you can start afresh with Spotify on your iMac. 


Check out this help page in order to find the steps for clean reinstall on the affected device. 


Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
