My Question or Issue

Hello,

 

I have a huge memory problem on Spotify first launch. My Spotify desktop application is very very slow. I checked on task manager and discovered that one of the task is consuming a lot of memory (see screenshot, nearly 2.3 Go !). The only solution I found was to kill only this process, and then everything's ok (only 400 Mo or lower). And my application is then normal (fast on image load, searches etc). After this "process kill", if I quit the app and relaunch it (without restarting my computer), everything's ok too.

 

What can I do to avoid this process kill on start-up ? Of course I tried to reinstall the desktop app, also the Windows App from the Windows store but same problem. Tried also to change some options (ex : with or without hardware acceleration...).

 

Thanks for any answer !

Same issue here. I use the latest version of Spofify app from Microsoft Store on my 64-bit Windows 10 Pro (Version: 1903).

More than four months, several updates but the problem remains.

 

Would you please tell me what to do or fix this memory leak ?

 

What do I win if I reach 3 Go ? 🙂
