My Question or Issue

Every time I start Spotify, it takes at least fifteen minutes to load.  I've tried the posted fixes (turning off hardware acceleration, no access to local files).  Each time I do so, it seems to work better for a day or two, but then it's back to normal.  What's the fix?

Hey there @Commanderabel,


Thanks for reaching out to the Community!


It's good idea to clean reinstall Spotify on the device where this occurs. This step lets you start afresh with the latest app version by removing any corrupted files from previous installations. 


In case you see no difference after that, try disabling any power saving or data cleaning settings on your device. Alternatively, you can try authorizing Spotify to run without restrictions. Make sure you try this since such features can often prevent the app from operating at full capacity.


Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.
