My Question or Issue
High CPU usage is draining my laptop battery and causing it to heat up.
Aditionally, Spotify (188.8.131.529.g8172f63a) becomes non-reponsive when I attempt to quit it and must force quit every time.
This seems to be fixed now. Let us know in the relevant Help Boards if this is still an issue for you :)
Have a nice day!
Same problem here! Been happening for the last month.
Still not fixed in the latest version. I've disabled Spotify on my machine. If it's not fixed within the month, subscription will be cancelled and I'll switch to something else. Spotify is my favourite music service, but it's unusable like this.
Although the report marked this issue as "fixed" I am still experiencing this issue with the latest version of the desktop client (184.108.40.2060) on macOS 10.14.5
CPU usage goes through the roof and the app won't close without forcing to quit.
Issue remains in latest 220.127.116.119.g4109e645 version.
I can see this problem in my macbookpro, nobody from spotify cares for years!!!
Issue remains in latest 18.104.22.1681.gdb77255f version.
I am not sure if Spotify engineers watch the community issues at all? there must be some reaction in days, in all companies which care about their reputation, but here we get nothing at all...
This is not fixed on version 22.214.171.1245.g566c8beb and Spotify is completely unusable for me as a result.
I have uninstalled, deleted spotify directories in Library/Caches and Library/Application Support, disabled Friend activity, disabled hardware acceleration, disabled crossfading, removed all playlists with local files, and disconnected offline devices. None of these suggestions helped and a few are pretty disruptive (redownloading all of the music I listen to offline is going to be painful assuming I can ever use Spotify again).
The application uses 100+% cpu immediately after opening even with nothing playing. Closing the application does not work and causes the application to stop responding. Please reopen this issue.
