My Question or Issue

For about a week now, the songs in the playlist have stopped playing in the correct order. I always sort my playlist with the date function. I simply start the playlist with a double click, usually the newest song is played first.

I just downloaded the latest setup again, uninstalled spotify, let windows delete the temp folder & the thumbnails, restarted, reinstalled Spotify and now it is running, do not know what was going on.

Hey there @Tomy_93

 

Thanks for reaching out - we’re here to help!
 

Just to confirm, have you tried a clean reinstall instead of the regular one? We recommend this step as it'll remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. This tends to solve issues with the app's performance.

 

Give your device a quick restart as well before you open the newly installed app.

 

It's also a good idea to log in to your Spotify account on another device just to check if you observe the same. If it doesn't occur on a different device, we'd suggest making sure that your original device is up to speed with any software updates available.
 

Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

Hello?
I contacted support, they gave me a test account, there I had the same problems.
So what's going on here?

It is not a local problem, 3 different Systems and another Account are affected.
