My Question or Issue

Recently I've been getting very high cpu usage from spotify around 15-25%, even though nothing is playing. So far I've tried clean reinstall and turning hardware acceleration off. This only started recently, few days ago.

Let me know how it goes 🙂

No help from there, reinstalled spotify many times, checked for windows updates, everything I could think of.. Not very nice hearing CPU fan going 100% most of the time because of spotify..

Hi @user-removed

thanks for bearing with me here !


The latest version's release was updated recently and should fix this issue.


I recommend you give the app under reinstall (restart after it's finished) and let me know how it went.


Waiting on your update 🙂
