My Question or Issue
I am using the MacBook version of Spotify desktop, and every button is extremely delayed. Any action (pause, play, skip, search, open playlist) takes 10+ seconds to happen including closing the app and transitioning between songs. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled twice while clearing the cache with no success. internet and system usage are not the issue either. The issue is making Spotify unusable as it will take 30+ seconds to load between songs.

Hi there @Meanybuttjr,
Thanks for the reply. If the issue occurs only with the university wi-fi network, then that appears to be where the root cause is. It's tough to say what exactly it may be, but perhaps some sort of security protocols or filtering settings are causing the data Spotify needs to function to be significantly delayed. Perhaps you can raise this issue with a system administrator. Also consider checking the settings for that specific network on your Mac, there may be some firewall setting for example that is causing this.
Hope this helps.
