Having the same issue.

Same here, manjaro Linux and Firefox.
Though I haven't updated that machine in a while...

Edit: Full system update did not help
Edit2: works on Opera

Same issue! Using web player with Firefox. Never had issues before and it still works fine on my phone app, but when trying to listen on my laptop, I constantly get this error. Have tried clearing cookies, cache and history.

For the past 2 hours, whenever I have tried to use the web player to play any song, I have received the following message: 'Something went wrong with the playback'. I have done the normal troubleshooting of clearing my cache, restarting my browser, logging in/out, etc. This seems to be the case from multiple computers as well.

Same issue as other posters here. Will add: works fine on Chrome and iPhone app, but when I try to switch to play on Firefox browser, nothing happens.

Seems to be up and running again for me. Not sure for how long, or maybe it was just a firefox issue yesterday...

Edit: Btw, didn't do anything to make it work, just logged in today and it was fine again.

Hi folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community.

 

If the issue is still present on your end, can you please let us know what version of Firefox you're running and include a screenshot of the error message?

 

This will help us look further into the matter.

 

Cheers.

I have exactly the same issue. Using the latest on Windows 11 Firefox 102 Spotify web player in an incognito window and get a red error message "Something went wrong with the playback". A song start playing few seconds without sound. Then starts the next song similarly, and then this message occurs. After that nothing can be played (if you click play nothing happens). I can send you a screenshot of the message, but it'll just be that text in white characters with a red background...

Logging in again, restarting etc. doesn't help.
