My Question or Issue
Hi! I've been getting this message after I close Spotify (it usually bugs and I can't search for any music nor see my music inside Liked Songs or playlists). Whenever I close Spotify there's a really high chance (lately almost 100% of the times I close it) that it doesn't close fully, if I try to open it again it says "The Spotify application isn't responding".
I usually fix it opening Task Manager and closing the spotify.exe manually.
This has been happening for a while (3+ months), I have not only reinstalled Spotify but completely reinstalled Windows 10 (for other reasons) and it still happens. I would say there's some bug when closing the Electron app that makes it not fully close on Windows.
I've got a laptop with Mac OS Big Sur and it runs flawlessly there (also no bugs regarding the songs).
Is anyone looking into this issue? It's starting to get a bit annoying as it's been months since it began to happen.
Have a good day!
We understand your frustration when the app fails to load, however the reasons for this happening could be much different for each and every one of you. We'd be most helpful if we're able to address and troubleshoot such generally formulated requests independently on a case by case basis.
Ultimately, what we can suggest here is to check the Ongoing issues board for relevant threads that might already address your issue, and before positing your own request also to do some basic troubleshooting yourselves like performing a clean reinstall of the app for example, to see if this makes a change for you.
As this thread here has become too general and has grown a bit old, going forward, we'd like to close it off and refer you to post any further feedback alongside all your details in a fresh new post in one of the relevant help boards.
We hope this clears things up. Take care!
