Unable to play music from desktop app


Unable to play music from desktop app

Casual Listener

I have been enjoying my playing from my desktop app for sometime, but now all of a sudden it has stopped working. Every time I try playing a song it gives me a blue error that says "The song is not available. If you have the file on your computer you can import it."




Everything still works fine from my phone. 


The desktop app also does not show my phone in Connected Devices.


Looking for help!

Hey @anthonyvalela


I recommend checking out this thread for solutions:



People have said things like a reinstall of the Spotify app or enabling/disabling hardware acceleration is the Spotify settings helped.


Let me know how it goes.
