My Question or Issue

Can't open the app

watch ^


I've tried updating, clearing cache/data, clean reinstalling with ADB, restarting, sideloading. You think of it I probably already did it. only thing that worked is sideloading old version but that is a bad solution for obvious reasons. Live chat support is giving me the run around right now. help 


Temp Solution:

if you really don't want to lose your data follow this guide (How to downgrade an app without losing data using ADB)


if you don't have access to a computer you can also use LADB (Play Store) 


also if you don't care about your data and just want a working app, uninstall the current play store version and install the APK I linked above



Same here


The Spotify App has stopped working entirely. I've conducted a clean reinstall according to instructions. On reinstall I'm able to sometimes play a snippet of music before it crashes again. Clicking buttons results in no responses. My OS is up to date and other music apps have no issues.

Actually, on further inspection I can play songs but I can't pause them, change them, or close the app to stop them playing. And they play on a significant lag.


Plan - Premium Duo

Country - UK

Device - Samsung Glaxy S23 Ultra

O/S - Android 13


The app just won't open at all for me, crashes and closes out.


Restarted the device, uninstalled and reinstalled, cleared cache and data etc.


Crashing for me as well. Currently on Version Samsung S21 ultra. As soon as I click the app I crash to home screen.


Exactly the same issue here, have tried all suggested solutions but no luck.


Currently on Version and same problem. Crashes right to home screen. Have tried everything as well still no luck. I haven't had a new android updates since last month. 


Same issue : not starting.


Same problem here (Netherlands) Hope Spotify fix this problem..
