My Question or Issue

It's constantly saying I'm in "Offline Mode" and that I need to be online to access everything. (Error code:4). It says at the top "No internet connection detected" even though I have a perfectly good ethernet cable running into my laptop. I just downloaded the app a couple minutes ago and I have searched through the questions similar to mine but none of the solutions work.

Hi @zeynepaydin

 

Thanks for getting back to us. 

 

Just to confirm, are you having the same issue on a different device?

 

Also, do you notice the same behavior when you're using the web player? 

 

Keep us posted.

Spotify Web Player works completely fine. I am experiencing this issue on my MacBook Air which has macOS Big Sur version 11.2.3.

Hi again @zeynepaydin

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

Could you let us know if the app is working as expected or if it also says it's offline when you log in to your account using a phone or a different computer?

 

We'll be on the lookout.

It's the same for my iPhone. In the Spotify app of my iPhone, Spotify constantly says 'Connecting...' and cannot connect to the network whenever I am connected to WiFi but it perfectly works with the cellular network. Still, on my iPhone, I can somehow play the songs in my playlists that are not downloaded.

Hey @zeynepaydin

 

Thanks for your reply and for trying everything we've suggested. 

 

Could you confirm the exact Spotify version you're currently running on both devices? 

 

We'll be right here.

Same problem. Fixed it by switching to private session and back, which refreshes the connection correctly

Umm so it's 2022 and I am having the same issue. At this point it can only be a software bug that devs gave up on fixing. So apparently the only solution is re-installing Spotify and pray that it will work
