Experiencing high usage of the CPU (much more than ordinary). Normal values ranging between 1-4%.
My plan is premium, platform windows-10.
This occured sometime late last week.
i have same thing in my macbook pro, i am thinking last update cause high cpu uses.
Hey @AndreasH1 and @volkanozenc,
Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.
Would you mind checking if you have any hardware-acceleration feature (or similar) active at the moment? If you do, deactivate it and the CPU usage should be back to the ordinary values.
Let us know how this goes. We'll be here if there's anything else we can help with!
Thanks for the quick response.
I can only talk for myself, but I don't have any active hardware acceleration features at the moment. I have even turned it off in the settings to see if that helped, it did not.
Thanks for the quick reply.
@AndreasH1, do you still experience this after a thorough reinstall of the Spotify app and restarting your Windows 10?
@volkanozenc, thank you for sharing your post and the useful info. Would you mind logging in to your account using a different MacBook Pro 2019 13' to see if you experience the same? At this point, in order to find a solution we should see if this is an issue and if/how can be reproduced and this test would be very helpful.
We'll look out for your next reply and be available to help with anything else as well in the meantime!
I also try logging diffrent macbook pro 2019 13' but the problem high cpu use is continuous in lastest version macOS app.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
It'd be great if you'd share some screenshots/videos about the different devices you tested (besides what you already shared).
We'll keep looking into this and address it accordingly if it turns out to be a wider-scale issue.
Thanks for your collaboration and patience so far!
thats the other device i am logging in with my account.
Thanks for replying and the required info.
At this point, would you mind confirming 1) the exact MacOS verion for both devices and 2) the exact Spotify version for both devices?
We'll take it from there and keep you posted.
Thank you for another quick reply and the info.
We'll be in touch as soon as possible regarding this.
Let us know if there's anything else we can help with in the meantime!
I have the same problem. It appears when I’m playing music on my playlists (also generated for me), when I start listening to playlists created for my friends, or listening to the song itself from the artist, the problem disappears.
188.8.131.524.g8731c306 (Microsoft Store)
After some further testing it appears this is the case for me as well, i didn't reflect that I tested with another list yesterday, but testing now with one list generated for me the issue reappears, but on a self-created list the issue doesn't exist.
