I used Spotify on one computer of me yesterday, and followed
the notification to restart spotify, to install the new update.
Now I have the newest version (0.9.8.15) of Spotify on this computer.
Now I just wanted to update Spotify on my other computer, too,
but there doesn't appear that notification.
It also doesn't work by downloading the newest Sptify version,
it is always version 0.9.7.16.
I already thought about that the resolution may be a reason.
On the one computer (Spotify working) the resolution is 1650x1050p,
on the other one (Spotify not working) the resolution is 1920x1680p.
Spotify doesn't give any error/crash codes.
Has anyone the same problem, or does anybody know how to fix it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The 0.9.8 update was rolled out to only a small amount of Spotify users for testing.
The computer with the 0.9.8 update was selected to test the new version.
The current release is 0.9.7, which is why your other computer can't find an update.
There is no way to force the 0.9.8 update on your other computer.
0.9.8 does seem to have some issues though (which is why it's in testing stages), so if you want to go back to 0.9.7 on the computer with 0.9.8 try downloading and installing the latest version of Spotify over the one you have now. (No data will be lost)
When 0.9.8 is officially rolled out, everyone will have it. (every computer)
Found the fix for the problem. If one has set Highperformance processor as the standard in Global Settings in the (for me) Nvidia control panel the problem with spotify not displaying text will occur.
