sportify stops responding randomly windows 11, music keeps playing

sportify stops responding randomly windows 11, music keeps playing


I have had this happened couple times on windows spotify app. I'm listening to songs and flipping through songs just fine and one of a sudden the desktop app wont respond to anything, the current song keeps playing. I close the program and the song keeps playing. If try to close spotify with ctrl+alt+del i cant find it. when the song it got stuck on ends no other song comes next but still i cant open spotify again. then i pressed the speaker icon on the bottom right in windows 11 and after that spotify worked like it should.

Hey @arttujokela1 ,


Thanks for posting in the Community.


Does the described issue still persist? If so, could you perform a clean reinstall of the app as described here?


Also try switching the download source of the app to the Microsoft store or the Spotify download page.


Let us know how that went,
