Cant's play the current song error (new update)



I have Spotify Premium and one of my main uses is at work, yesterday my app updated and now everytime a song its about to end it gives me the error "Cant' play the current song"

is not very practical to have to change song every 2 minutes when I'm trying to get things done.


I tried disabling the CrossFade songs

Disabled the Hardware acceleration,

Re started


Cleared my caché


and the problem persists. do you know what else can I do? or if its possible to go back to the old version?

I am really not sure, but modifying the hosts file could help, maybe, if there are entries in there. It did work for me with the web app. Close Spotify before doing the following.
1. Open Notepad with administrator rights.

2. Choose Open from File menu.
3. Paste the following into the File Path (navigation bar): C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
4. Choose 'All Files' instead of 'Text files' in the bar next to the file name bar. The previously empty window should now show a handful of files. Choose one that's named as 'hosts'.

Explanation: Hosts is a Windows system file for redirection of addresses. It's possible to redirect addresses to another IP or to void (

Now, if you can see entries such as the following example:

... then you should either put a # in front of each line (that's called commenting out) or delete the line entirely. Do this for every single entry that has either fastly or spotify in the address.

Save the changes and see what happens. No restart required for the computer.

Let me know how it goes!
