My Question or Issue

Lately, my desktop app has been acting weird. My Spotify won't connect and show on multiple apps and websites like Discord, Last.FM and Musixmatch. Even though my iPhone app has been working

Sane here

Forgot to add that I did try to reinstall Spotify and reconnecting it to the websites that I've stated

Same here. Issues started after last spotify update.

I dont think I've ever had this problem but today it happened.

Spotify connect doesnt work, also Discord doesnt show what I'm playing. Things like Last FM dont work either.

It seems the Desktop app is bugged. Glad to know im not the only one I was freaking out I did something wrong xd.

Same issue as well. My Spotify Desktop app is acting like it's completely disconnected from all my other devices or connected apps like Discord, etc. I can have Spotify Web App open in my browser on the same computer, and it won't recognize I'm listening in the Desktop app.

same with me aswell

Hi folks,


Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!


The tech teams at Spotify are aware of this issue and are working on a fix as we speak. We had received reports in the past about this happening when VPN or a school/ work network was blocking certain networking posts.


We'll let you know more as soon as we have more information.
