My Question or Issue

 The latest update for the non-Windows Store version of Spotify Desktop is causing all tracks to display the "unplayable" error message and skip until I close the app. Attempted restart and a reinstallation, but it didn't fix the issue. The Android version on my phone is running just fine, however.

Hey @Give_me_tea, welcome to the Community.

 

Hope you are having a great time!

Please try to do a clean install of Spotify using the steps from this post. That way you will get rid of leftover files that may conflict the freshly installed Spotify app.

By chance, have you tried to install the Windows Store version of Spotify and see how it goes?

 

Hope I was able to help :)
