Spotify Crashing and Going Slow

Spotify Crashing and Going Slow

Spotify app starts up fine but after a minute or two of playing a song if I attempt to go to a different playlist, artist or album the app becomes extremely slow, or just doesn't load. I have to close the app but then if I try to open it back up it says 'The Spotify application is not responding.' Just to get it to open again I have to open Task Manager and 'End Task' for the 3 Spotify background apps. Even then this keeps happening after every song/album/artist.  


My internet connection is fine (30+ Mbps), my Windows 10 is up-to-date, uninstall does not help. 

I've turned off Hardware Acceleration to see if that helped, it didn't.

Turned off all Local Files, didn't help either. 

My current version: 1.0.50


This is getting frustrating and unusable.

Is there anything else I could try to fix this or are others also getting this problem?

If you've already restarted your device, you should delete and redownload your spotify app, or even log out and log back in.
