My Question or Issue

When I try to play music on the website or the app, Spotify says I need to install the newest version of Chrome. I checked my Chromebook multiple times and every time it tells me that there are no updates. I tried downloading Spotify to my computer but that yielded the same results. I can still browse my playlists/music, but when I hit the play button I get this message. This is what the screen saysThis is what the screen says

Hey all,

 

Issue should now be fixed!

 

Try clearing cache and cookies if you are still experiencing and be sure that Chrome OS and your webbrowser are all up-to-date.

 

Let us know what the result is. Looking forward to your reply!

 

Have a nice day.

School-controlled but the problem arose at home on my own network. 

Thanks

Mine is school controlled as well, but, for reasons I'm willing to go into but don't care to explain right now, I have teacher-level access to the things normally blocked to students, Spotify included. Therefore, the school blocking Spotify should be ruled out as a possibility.

I don't quite fancy the idea of having to completely clear all my cookies and caches, and as others have already stated, it's done nothing, anyway. I tried incognito and nothing changed. Again, all it did was play a few seconds of the song before stopping and showing me the error message. I tried another account and the same problem arose with that as well.

I also tried the DRM trick (https://community.spotify.com/t5/Other-Partners-Web-Player-etc/quot-Spotify-no-longer-supports-this-...) and all the others, still not working. Tried to change the user-agent, but it's of no use.

Same problem as the above.
Spotify seems to wants both chrome and firefox to update itself even though no updates are available. I am also on a linux device

Still isn't working. As with most people here, I'm using a school chromebook.

It's really frustrating how we haven't gotten a response other than the first one which doesn't seem to work anyways.
