No internet connection/ app shows offline despite on WiFi or data

 

Hi. For the past few days, I've been completely unable to use spotify on mobile data. I have the allowance to do so but all the tracks are grayed out and I get a "no internet connection" error at the bottom. It works perfectly fine on WiFi.

 

I have tried:

Uninstalling and reinstalling 

Logging out and back in several times

 

 

I have the Premium Student plan and a Samsung Note 10.

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for your patience so far! 

 

If you're experiencing this, could you make sure to try the following first:

 

  • Log out and log back in the app with your login details
  • Restart your device
  • Thoroughly reinstall the app with these steps 
  • Use a different connection
  • Check your firewall and antivirus software/apps to make sure Spotify is whitelisted/set as an exception
  • If the issue is happening on mobile data, make sure Spotify has the permission to use data under App Permissions.
  • For Android users: Make sure the Spotify app is closed. Open the following URL in the mobile Chrome browser: chrome://net-internals/#dns and click on DNS (if not already marked). There is a button saying "Clear host cache" - press that button. Next click on Sockets and press "Flush socket pools". Start the Spotify app.
  • For Windows users

    1. Close/exit the Spotify app.
    2. Click on the Start Icon.
    3. Write cmd and open Command Prompt.
    4. The Windows Command Prompt Window will appear. Type in: ipconfig /flushdns and press ENTER.
    5. You should receive the following message: Windows IP Configuration. Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
    6. Open the Spotify application.

If the issue persists after that, add your +VOTE to let us know. We'd also recommend making sure that you're rocking the latest update available as our tech teams are looking into this. 


We'll keep you posted here on any other updates we have on our end so don't forget to subscribe to this thread 🙂

Cześć, miałem to samo pomogło wejście w ustawienia, wpisanie "opcje danych komórkowych" i tam "Głos i dane", gdzie zmieniasz na "LTE, VoLTE wył.

I have a similar issue. I have the latest beta installed (which seems to be updated every few days & still doesn't work right)

 

And when I get in the car, I get "no internet connection" when I clearly have it. I've launched Google Music & it plays just fine. However, with Spotify, nothing plays.

 

The ONLY solution that seems to work, is that I have to force close the app by going in to info, hit force close, restart, then it works. This is obviously tiresome, & if driving, I have to wait until i'm at a light to fix it. If on the highway, i'd prefer to obviously not mess with it.

 

I honestly don't know what the issue is, & why something simple is broken. I'm on Android 10, & latest beta. I'm hoping that with 2-3 updates a week it'll be fixed, but nothing. Had I not paid a year already, I may have canceled it & gone back to Google Music where i've NEVER had an issue with "no connection". Definitely a Spotify issue. I wish I would have found this out earlier or I never would have gone premium.

 

And yes, i've uninstalled & reinstalled & that doesn't do anything. It's quite frustrating to be honest.

Same issue here.  Primarily occurs with mobile data.  When I start my commute in the morning everything works (going from home wifi to mobile).  Leaving work I get the "No internet connection" issue.  But once I get back on Wifi it seems to work again.

Hey, @quickstang 
Welcome to Spotify Community and thanks for reaching out here!

If you're running a Beta version of the Spotify app, this kind of issue can exist. So, maybe you should exit the Beta program and run the common version of the app. If even after that, the issue persists, I ask you to tell me...

 

If you have any other further questions or need more help, let me know! I'd love to help!

Best Regards,
hezorg

To my knowledge I'm not using a Beta.  I have also tried a clean reinstall, but no good.  I don't know if its relevant, but my OG Pixel never had this issue only the Pixel 3a XL I bought to replace it (both running Android 10)

Hey again, you all @mbidewel @Aleximex  @quickstang 

  • If you are running a Beta version of Spotify or the Android, this kind of misbehavior can happen usually, so to ensure the best experience in Spotify, I recommend that you go to the stable version of Spotify and Android, as well.

Now, I ask you to try the clean reinstallation (I've mentioned above), and also check on your devices for a firewall or any antivirus software/app that may be blocking the access to mobile data from Spotify.

 

Keep me posted!

 

Kind Regards,

hezorg

Mine issue is similar but for me it does not work on Wi-fi, but works on mobile data. I've described it here https://community.spotify.com/t5/Android/Spotify-stops-to-work-when-connected-to-Wi-FI/td-p/4860603 but no one replied yet 😞 It's ridicoulus that such issues occurs and blocking us from using for what we have paid.

Reinstalled the non beta version and this morning while in the car headed to work I launched Spotify and got no internet connection, you're not online message again. Tried a few times but nothing. I had full LTE signal. Hit a red light, force closed the app, relaunched and it started playing right away.

 

No VPN, Anti-virus, firewall, or anything.

@FriskyPlace73 correct - that's my issue as well. So it's seems that Spotify broke it an hopefully it will be resolved asap.
