I can play a given song off of any playlist. I can play a given song off of a search. I can play all of my liked songs, "radio" stations, etc. Everything works, EXCEPT:
If I go directly to a specific album and play it, or try to play any song individually from it on the album's main list, it simply does nothing.
I have tried reinstalling several times and have tried restarting, logging in and out again, all to no avail. This is pretty upsetting because listening to an entire album is BY FAR my preferred method and having to remake playlists for every album I want to listen to listen to seems a little absurd.
Also having this problem for months now alongside with not working Spotify Connect and broken discord activity.
The hosts file is crystal clean, tried to do "clean install" several times no luck either. Win11 premium, web version of Spotify works fine apparently. Solution i found is to use the older version "spotify-1-1-77-643" and block the updates. The downside is not working listening history sync between pc and mobile. Hope it helps.
