Yep, apparently there was a line in the hosts file blocking a spotify address... Absolutely no clue how that got there. After removing it everything returned to normal

Tried the hosts thing and no luck. I have this issue since I reinstalled spotify because I couldn't play a particular song (which does play on my phone).

 

It's all ruined, same on my laptop, also running windows 10.

It's not only the windows 10 app, the windows execution program, but also spotify web has the bug. The song I wanted to play is OG Eastbull - Bella giornata

I deleted all of the text and it worked. Quick question...

Would just deleting the host file work? Just asking for the convenience.

Hey everyone, 

 

 

If you haven't already, can you also let us know when this started, and a timestamp of the last time you saw the issue?

 

@Skorps123 it's best just to edit it for now. Don't think it's a good idea to just delete it. 

 

Thanks!

i'm a premium user and can't play spotify on my desktop it tells me "can't play current song" and I've picked several so it is happening to everything i click on. i restarted, logged out, uninstalled and reinstall to no avail. I tried the edit the note pad host file but it didn't have any spotify site listed. this just started this morning as I was playing fine on a desktop yesterday afternoon.

The solution literally just saved me from ragequitting from Spotify.

 

Although it is still infuriating that my desktop app gets absolutely thrashed every other time I add a song to a playlist. What a lovely "premium" service.

Yeah having the same issue. Reinstalled multiple times. Logged out/in multiple times. It is still happening as of this message. All my playlists are empty on Desktop. iPhone is playing and working fine. Cannot connect it to another device.

Hey!

 

I have a feeling that googletagservices or googletagmanager (whichever it is called) is also necessary for Spotify. I have seen it blocked, so if you have these lines too, add a # in front of it, save the changes and see if that does the trick.

 

You can empty the file completely, but I would advise against deleting the file.

 

Hope this helps anyone;
Have a nice day!
