[Desktop] Browse is Missing

Status: Resolved


This is an ongoing issue, some customers reporting they don't have the Browse option in the desktop client. Browse being missing has been solved for quite a few people, however there are still reports of this issue.


To reproduce:

  • Anyone with an affected account will not have the Browse option, which is at the very top of the left hand panel in the Desktop client. 



Searching for: "spotify:app:browse" is reported to work for the majority of people experiencing this issue. 


Additional information:

Thanks for the reports so far guys! If possible, would you also be able to add point 5 (apologies, slipped my mind the first time) - your Spotify usernames will be useful in case the teams want to check out individual accounts.

Many thanks for taking the time to give your details, keep the reports coming! 🙂

It appears I can't edit my message anymore. My Spotify username is lordfrikk.


Thanks for helping out, Peter.
