Yep, these expectations are painful... It proved to not work for me either. It just worked for a more longer time than the last sessions.
But, later... I mean today (I am in the insider programme for receiving the latest builds and after the latest build update 16237 from yesterday update) it worked without any crash, smoothly. I don't know if it's this but has higher probabilities with the update... before the update I unchecked various things in the settings but was still crashing.
+ I have the spotify version from the store, not the desktop downloadable version.
It's good to be able to listen without stopping. ^_^
