My Question or Issue

 

Any song I try to play gets the message:


"Spotify can't play this right now. If you have the file on your computer you can import it"

 

Spotify worked fine last night. I have tried deleting local files. Uninstalling. Reinstalling. Reinstalling from Microsoft Store rather than spotify website. 

No idea what to do now.

Hey @tsundorima

 

That's odd!

 

Can you play music through the web player?

 

You can try assigning the audio output you're using to Spotify: follow this HowToGeek guide on how to assign per-app audio outputs.

Otherwise, ensure that the device you're using is marked as Default, as Spotify will use the default audio device.

 

Let me know how it goes 🙂
