My Question or Issue

as soon as I try to type in a song in the search bar, spotify instantly crashes. reinstalling doesn't work, deleting cache doesn't work. In a previous topic some months ago spotify didn't respond when trying to search for songs/artists, that took a long time to get fixed, I hope this doesn't take as long...

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions. 

It's not becoming unresponsive though, I had that issue before which randomly fixed itself.. since yesterday the app just instantly closes.

Hey @Plexson


Thanks for getting back to us. 


If the app crashes as opposed to becoming unresponsive when using the Search bar this might still be related to the Ongoing Issue we're investigating. Feel free to comment what you experience in the thread there. 


This will helps us further with finding the solution for this issue. 


Let us know if you have any questions.
