Thank you so much Swapnadeep! Removing the Nano widget did it for me immediately.  This was plaguing me all weekend up until just now, thanks so much.

My phone model is Vivo X70.

1. I have tried removing the nano player widget from home screen.

2. Clearing cache and storage and uninstalling spotify. 

3. Restart the phone and reinstall the Spotify app.


Tried to play a song in Spotify and it crashes. Removing the nano widget does not work out for my case. Thanks.


Same problem by Vivo y75 5g, the app crushes instead playing music. I have premium account and it is really very much annoying that i can't use it . 😡


After I removed the Nano player..Its working fine..But please fix this soon..Thanks.. My phone is VIVO X60 Pro plus..
