Hi Spotify Community,
I recently purchased a brand new Intel Evo laptop (lenovo.com/de/de/faqs/intel/intel-evo-platform/) and I'm encountering some compatibility issues with the Spotify application. Despite meeting all the system requirements, I'm facing several frustrating issues that are hindering my music streaming experience. I would appreciate any insights or solutions from the community to resolve these problems.
Constant Freezing and Lagging: When I launch Spotify on my Intel Evo laptop, the application often freezes or lags, making it difficult to browse playlists, search for songs, or even play music smoothly. This occurs regardless of my internet connection and persists even after restarting the application or my laptop.
Unresponsive User Interface: Sometimes, the Spotify app on my Intel Evo laptop becomes unresponsive to clicks and commands. This issue primarily occurs when I attempt to switch between different sections of the application, such as playlists, podcasts, or settings. It's frustrating as it disrupts my browsing experience and requires force-closing the app to regain control.
Audio Distortion and Skipping: While playing songs on Spotify, I notice occasional audio distortion and skipping on my Intel Evo laptop. It's particularly noticeable during tracks with high bass or complex instrumentals. This issue persists even when using headphones or external speakers, suggesting it's not a problem with the laptop's built-in audio system.
Battery Drainage: I've observed that using Spotify on my Intel Evo laptop drains the battery significantly faster compared to other applications. Even when the laptop is connected to a power source, the battery percentage decreases rapidly while streaming music on Spotify. This issue negatively impacts the portability aspect of the Intel Evo laptops.
I have tried reinstalling the Spotify app, updating all drivers, and ensuring my laptop is running the latest software updates, but these issues still persist. I'm confident that my Intel Evo laptop is more than capable of handling Spotify, so I believe there might be some compatibility issues specific to this hardware.
If anyone else in the community has encountered similar problems with Spotify on their Intel Evo laptops or has any suggestions to overcome these issues, I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Let's collaborate and find a solution to enhance our music streaming experience on these powerful devices.
Thank you in advance for your help!
