Recently I've been experiencing a lot of problems with the Spotify Desktop app.
1. Playing songs I have not saved in my library or my playlists.
Problem: This sadly does not work at all. Before playing any song, I have to save it (not download it) after which it works. This problem includes putting songs in the waiting list. When playing a song and trying to play a song I have not saved, it just stops as if I wasn't playing anything.
2. Playing Songs
Problem: When I play a playlist or songs from my library, the Spotify desktop app plays the first song of the playlist or the selected song. After finishing this song or skipping the song Spotify stops in a similar manner to the first Problem.
I have found a workaround. If I play a Song and add the next to the waiting list, it adds the whole playlist and will let me play the playlist.
3. My library
Problem: My desktop app does not synchronize the library with the ones on my other devices. It does Sync up playlists (Adding/ deleting playlists and songs to/ from the playlists) But not my saved songs, podcasts, albums, and artists.
4. Other connected Devices
Problem: The desktop app does not recognize any other devices playing songs or even just existing. It also does not recognize the web version even if used from the PC.
