Spotify maxing CPU core

My Question or Issue

High CPU usage is draining my laptop battery and causing it to heat up.

 

Aditionally, Spotify (1.1.3.259.g8172f63a) becomes non-reponsive when I attempt to quit it and must force quit every time.

Hey, I wrote a long update a few days ago that I think needed to be approved. I just want to follow up on that to make sure that it sent successfully.

Hey, just checking in on this and confirming Spotify is still unusable in 1.1.7

Hello,

I had the same problem for past few days on MacOS Mojave but I managed to find a workaround.

I installed an older version of Spotify (1.0.64.399 to be precise). The CPU consumption was fine when using that version. I waited for the application to find the latest update (after some time the usual spotify notification about the update showed up) and the CPU consumption is still fine after Spotify app updated itself to the latest version.

 

Hope that helps.

Regards.

I'm having the same problem on a Windows 10 desktop.  Spotify is using more than half the CPU.

Hi there!

 

I am using latest version of Spotify on Macbook Pro A1502 Early 2015 running Mojave and Spotify itself is still a cause of enormous CPU usage and very high fan activity. Please try to solve this problem, the app is pretty much unusable right now. Thanks in advance.
