My Question or Issue

I just downloaded spotify on my mac and when i opened it, none of my friends' activity showed up and all the playlists in my library were empty, even though all the custom playlist photos were popping up. when I play music from my phone, spotify connect doesn't work either. everything is working fine on my other computer. To troubleshoot, I closed the app twice which did nothing, i made sure that my phone and my mac were on the same wifi network, and i even deleted and redownloaded the app on my computer and i'm still having no success
