Hey folks,

Hey there,


Thanks for your patience this far! 


The issue that caused the Web Player, Spotify pages and images to not show up has been resolved. 


If you're having troubles, try to out and back in, clear the cache of your browser or reinstall your app.


  If none of those helped, please get in touch in the relevant Help Board. 


Have a lovely day!


I'm experiencing this on Spotify Web Player and on Android. When I select a song, it does not play and goes straight to the following songs one after the other without playing, until reaching the end of the playlist.

Also, the support website is not working properly - it keeps asking me to log off in every device I have



Any ideas on what is going on here? I am using the android app


@theundercave i have the same issue too and i'm using android as well. no images are showing up.


@theundercave same thing is happening to me in the desktop player. I tried restarting the app a couple of times and only certain images will show


Hey @unagiiiii@jcasacao@theundercave, thanks for posting here!


Looks like this might be happening due to these problems here. Make sure you add your +VOTE and subscribe in order to receive all the updates. Hopefully things will be back working soon.


Stay tuned, have a great day,



I'm also experiencing this on Android, Oxygen OS 9.0.6. Have cleared cache and reinstalled app, but no change. No artwork whatsoever will load and playback has become inconsistent.


Images won't load regardless of browser or platform.


Images aren't loading anywhere...


Looks like this also affected the dekstop app.

I'm using Spotify for Windows 10 and noticed some of the cover art either like corrupted image or become default pic. (songs and album)

And the image of some artists are gone. Now it only showing default pic.
