And I found the way to solve the problem from a website


Some bug make the app can't load currect language packge. To solve this problem need to rename the language packge "" to "" at location "C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\locales" , and then restart spotify.

Thanks for sharing, this critical bug existed at many releases and affects many people in Taiwan.

It is frustrating that the dev/qa teams haven't noticed such obvious issue. 😭


Can't believe Spotify official is not aware of this problem that exists for almost a year...


Btw, temporary solutions here:

Noone want to fix this sh!t

When will this get fixed?

Hey @sorhiJake, thanks for checking with us on this.


We can confirm that the Spotify teams are aware of this issue and working on fix. I'm afraid we don't have an exact timeframe for when this will get fixed.

This works! Thank you. 

At the same time, I'm surprised that it's been a year and no one at Spotify is willing to fix this simple issue. It pretty much says a lot about the company -- They are willing to spend millions of dollars on Racists Joe Rogan and defending him, but unwilling to spend a few minutes fixing a major technical issue for its customers.  Pretty Shameful.

Hi folks,


We've heard back from the team and this should be fixed for all of you now.


Can you confirm if the issue persists?

We'll keep an eye out for your replies.

Take care!

Live, love, laugh and listen to music 🙂

Dunno if it's fixed on Taiwanese locales, but the same exact issue is now on Finnish locale Windows 11 when using English language..
