Spotify desktop "This song is not available"


Spotify desktop "This song is not available"

Since the last update ( Spotify is no longer working, it launches as usual but I can't play any song, it say that the song isn't available and that if I have it on my computer I can import it. For every song.

I tried deleting the cache, removing, uninstall / reinstall but nothing is working, still can't play songs. The desktop app at my home works, the mobile app works and everyone's app around me in my company works.

So I don't really know what to do next, am I the only one in that case ?

Edit : I'm a premium user, paying for something that does not work.

Ok, I found a link to downgrade Spotify and now it works. Still not the best solution but well.

I just posted about this in another thread, I am having the same issue.  I am using the desktop client and mine is also version  Almost every song I click on says it is unavailable.


I really hope this gets fixed quickly.  I am a relatively new user of Spotify, I came over when Rdio shut down.  This is the first problem I've had, so I didn't realize until now that there's apparently not a good way to contact Spotify directly.  Kind of irritating, when I am paying for a Premium membership that I am currently unable to use.  I don't want to cancel my membership after everything I went through to migrate my collection over from Rdio, but I'm not going to keep paying for this if I can't play anything.

Thanks! worked

 I'm having the same problem. Is this legitimately what Spotify wants us to do? Downgrade and avoid their new releases? I'm extremely disappointed that I can't use what I'm paying for. 

I have tried so many different things, and downgrading spotify to an older version is the only thing that got it working for me. thanks

I dont have Spotify Premium but had the same Problem.

I could fix it by disabling "Local Files".

Hope that helps for some more Poeple.

already intalled the old version but sound not out. 

Same here - but when I turned off Hardware Acceleration in the "Advanced Settings" I got sound out.
