That method only works sometimes and bot for everyone so there is no reason to mark it as a solution when it is false.

Yeah, just to be clear, this solution didn't work for me when it was first

No, you're right. If it's no solution for everyone, it's NO solution. By the way, after a brief, erm, pause of a couple of weeks, the "Pause after 9 seconds" is back with me again... Nothing solved. 😒

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for keeping us posted 🙂

 

It's a good idea to check if the browser is up-to-date and to clear the cache. If the issue persists, you can try with a different browser. Are there any changes?

 

If that doesn't help, you can log in to another account. Does the issue occur?

 

Keep us in the loop! If you have questions, you know where to find us.

Hey @karldegrijse,

 

Thanks for getting in touch with us. We're sorry to hear you feel this way and we'd love to help you.

 

In this case it's a good idea to get in touch with your IT. That way you can check if there are restrictions on the device that could block apps like Spotify. 

 

Let us know how it goes. If you have questions, you know where to find us.

I'm pretty sure there aren't any restrictions on my new device, when there weren't any on my old chromebook, nor on any devices of my colleagues. 

MOREOVER, spotify now completely FLIPS on chromebook: the first 10 seconds or so, it starts a random new song in the same playlist EVERY second (like a fickle adolescent would), until it finds one it "approves" of, and THAT one it plays for the whole... 9 seconds. After that it retires.

Hey @karldegrijse,

 

Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

 

Could you let us know which browser you are using and whether or not the issue persists on another one or on a different device? If you have the option to log in with a friend or family members account that would also help us get to the root cause of the problem quicker.

 

Keep us posted, we'd love to investigate this further.

It's a Chromebook. There's only one browser on a Chromebook, is there?

Hey @karldegrijse,

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

If your Chromebook supports the Play Store you should be able to download different browsers as regular apps. It would also be useful to check if the issue comes up when you log in with a friend or family members account or with a different network, such as a mobile hotspot.

 

Keep us posted, we’ll keep an eye out for your reply.
