Spotify SO slow...

Spotify is acting up quite a lot recently. Songs are loading forever, search results never show up, friends list is loading for ages... What's going on? Why should I continue to pay for a service I can't use? Is there any info on whether there'll be a server/network upgrade to compensate for this?

Same issue. Why is that everytime software developers roll out new tech the users have to suffer from latency. Get it up to speed before you roll it out. I would much prefer high performance vs fancy attachments.

Unbelievably slow, horrible user experience, so much that I am using iTunes again to play music. There is nothing quite like Spotify, I love it! But I hate this slowness, it drives me mad and it seems you guys at Spotify don’t care. Really, really bad!

Re: Spotify SO slow...

This thread is pretty old and I haven't seen any other comments about slowness recently. What exactly is slow for you? Have you checked your internet connection?

Re: Spotify SO slow...

This thread is pretty old, yes, but others are not. There are plenty of threads about this issue, old and new, a mess in fact as usual, and helpless, as usual too. All of them unread or at least never replied by the Spotify team, of course, as usual too. And there are many pages and reviews outside the Spotify community about this problem too. Google it and you’ll see. Yes, of course I have checked my Internet connection, why should you think I am a dumb stupid? My Internet connection is fast (30MB) and everything at home connected to the internet is fast and reliable, including the PC which is brand new with a Windows experience index of 7 determined by the lowest score. What is slow for me? Slow is when I click on a song and need to wait 15 seconds before is starts playing. Slow is when I open the application and there is nothing I can do for a minute or so. Slow is when I click on "Discover" and it takes ages for the page to upload and I cannot scroll it down without continuous disruptions and clumsy response. If you don't work for Spotify you really act like them, it is always easier for the kind of you to think the other person is a dork. Thanks, but that does not help.

Are you using Windows 8 by any chance?

Re: Spotify SO slow...

I am using using Win7 and I am having the exact same issues. this is at home (50Mbs up/down) as at work (10Mbs up/down) I just downloaded all my songs/playlists because that was faster. but if I want to find new music I've to wait. ALOT.

Re: Spotify SO slow...

I also got the problem.

When starting spotify, the logging in takes about 30 seconds.

Finding a song more then 5 minutes, and when i finaly play a song, there is a 10 sec buffer every 5 seconds.

I tried flushing my DNS and resetting my modem. It hasn't anything to do with my internet connection since i got 60/6 speed.

Fyi: i live in the netherlands, using the ISP Ziggo.
