This issue began a couple weeks ago and is getting worse. It is completely unpredictable. I will be listening to music and suddenly it will go silent because the next song won't play. Sometimes it happens with every other song in an album, sometimes with the entire album. I click play but the time doesn't move, no music plays, and the album artwork is replaced with a circle.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the desktop app at least 3-4 times in the past week. I've restarted my computer multiple times. Sometimes that fixes it right away sometime it makes it worse and now not a single song will play. I can't predict when it will or won't work.
I uninstalled/reinstalled today and restarted and now not only are no songs playing, when I click on random promoted artists or playlists on the homepage just to see if anything works, it says all the playlists are empty which is obviously not true since these are their promoted playlists. I've lost over an hour at work on this. Every day it's a guessing game if Spotify will work, and if it doesn't, for how long until it just decides to stop working. I don't know what to do anymore.
(Edit: I have been using the Spotify app for 1 year + with no problems until the last few weeks. Nothing about the computer has changed.)
