Hello, after some investigation i'll found a solution that work for me.

I don't know wich software do this (some antispyware or similar), but my HOST file was modified with this voice

 

0.0.0.0    spclient.wg.spotify.com

 

Remove the line, save the HOST file, restart spotify client and/or your desktop.

If you have trouble with managing HOST file, please read this guide.

There was nothing like this in my host file.

Daily Mixes will update but will not play on desktop (mac & windows) or on phone (apple & android) with my premium account. 
This has been happening for some time--any help is much appreciated !

 # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

 # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

I don't know how you figured this out, but you're my new personal hero! 

 

For all of you that say it didn't fix it: Make sure you edit the 'hosts' file, not the 'hosts.bck' one. I neither realized there are two hosts files, but it solved my problem.

Hi,

 

when i first saw this (a few months ago) it worked but now my Spotify has gone back to "The friend feed failed to load" but the Radio & Daily Mix works. I tried the solution again and the "0.0.0.0    spclient.wg.spotify.com" wasn't there.

 

Any other way?

 

I've seen the abba.json posts but I can't find it (I'm on a Mac)

Thank you!

Hello,

 

I can't find my HOST file 😞 I searched everywhere but maybe not well. 

Disappointed..
