Spotify crashing when switching output device

My Question or Issue

When I change the default output device in the Windows sound manager, Spotify crashes every time. 

With crashes, I mean it continues playing the last second or so of sound on repeat on the previous device (without any sound on the selected device), and I can't interact with it. I have to kill it via Task manager, then open it again before it can play sound on the newly selected device. 

 

I have been switching output device like this for over 6 months now without problems, but it started doing this recently. Did Spotify/Windows update something to break this?

Confirmed working now.

As above said, took a bit too long to fix, but it got fixed at least.

I'll keep my Premium......for now.

 

Next time, handle major issues when we actually devote a lot of time to give you all the info, a bit more efficient.
