Found another slightly laborious way:

 

Close all tabs/browsers.

Open the app on your phone, play a track, open the device list (you should see all the "web player" devices that relate to the tabs you once opened)

Choose one of the "web player" devices.

Playback should fail, device will be removed from list.

Keep selecting them until they all dissapear.

Re open spotify web player and it should be fine.

It's very simple to fix. Just click on each device that appears in the list that you're not using. One by one they'll disappear and your list will be clear again.

I solved by installing spotify app on my mobile phone.

the webplayer worked.

Immediately uninstalled the mobile app.

 

it is absurd that spotify does not give solutions to this bug

The problem continues.  I actually installed the "app" on my phone and it helped for a little while.  The problem has absolutely nothing to do with the browser or the browser cache.  It's something that only the "app" can fix...  The browser software apparently does not "know how" to fix it.  So if you don't run the "app" once in a while then the problem continues, as it does now for me.  I've moved on to youtube.com.  spotify.com simply does _not work_.  duh!!!

this is what it looks like... but if you can't access any other player, clicking on "devices available" will only show you the options to connect. :(
