Spotify crashing when switching output device

Plan

Country

Operating System

Windows 7

 

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?

 

Hey folks,

 

Glad to hear that this is now fixed for you in the latest update for the app :)

Your right, but In that case, don't make it "impossible" to use an older version which had no problem.

Let us choose to update or not our software... 

See how winsows 10 has difficulties with it...
