Spotify is the only app that I can't access online on my mobile device. I have cell service AND full WIFI connection, but spotify still says it has no internet connectivity. This is causing me to look at other apps ASAP. Any help would be appreciated.
This offline bug is really getting to me. I have a laptop which I use sometimes connected to the docking station with a fixed cable and sometimes disconnected from docking station (using wifi). Everytime I switch Spotify looses connection and goes into offline mode. Starting in either wifi or at docking station works fine, so it's the switch that kills Spotify.
Everything else works fine in both modes, only Spotify has this bug.
Spotify really need to have a look at this and in worst case allow the users to force a connection check to see if there's a connection.
Go to your hosts folder in Windows/System32 and make sure you don’t have any Spotify hosts blocked. This is the culprit here. Other fix, is logging in by Facebook. If that does not work, then 100% hosts file with a blocked Spotify host
Okay so I think I have figured this out. Spotify gets confused between Ethernet and WIFI. Looks like if Wifi is on, even though not connected, Spotify by default will want to use it. Thats why people like us with docks are having this issue.
What you need to do is if you are using ethernet, turn off your wifi. Undock your machine Close and remove spotify Dock your machine (ensuring only ethernet is on) Install spotify Login and it should be good.
