I'm using Windows 8 on a premium plan. I've been using Spotify for 4 years with no issues, but the last few days the app has been horribly laggy and slow. It takes about a minute to 'load' the app, and it will often stop playing the song I choose, or just start playing something else instead. If I hit play/pause, or try to skip, it can take up to 1-2 mins to register it. When I get music playing, it plays with no problem, but as soon as I try to do anything on the app, it will lag like crazy. It works fine on my iPhone 6s.
I googled the issue and tried the following:
- reinstalling Spotify
- turning off hardware acceleration
- updating graphics card drivers
- rebooting system
No luck so far. Any other things to try?
