Spotify On Chromebook!!

Hi there!

I had downloaded the Spotify Web Player app on my Acer Chromebook, and it's been working perfectly for the past few months.

 

Just yesterday, I was opening the app to listen to some music, when suddenly, it looked like it had updated completely! It was a really cool look to it, so I tried to play a song using it in the new format, but it said that something was wrong with the playback. So there was a button that said "Install App" and there was an option to install the chromebook version. I did so, and it went back to normal. This morning I opened it and it was back to the normal way, but then I closed it about an hour later, and just now tried opening it, and it's back to the updated way that won't work! It's a little frustrated as I like it better having an app than having to manually go on it on Chrome. 

 

Is there a way to fix this? It's very frustrating! Thanks!! :)

I have pretty much the same problem (on a Pixel Chromebook).   New web app looks very cool but is extremely buggy (it keeps freezing and I have to quit and restart it).  

 

Also, there is no longer a Radio option, which was my favorite Spotify feature.      

 

I'm guessing that the web App is low priority for the Spotify team since so many installable Apps have been built, but it's very disappointing after I've been a Premium user for years.

I've been having the same problem with my Spotify app on Chromebook. Ever since this update, I've also been having trouble connecting my last.fm account.

Spotify, get your $#!+ together. I'm not schooled in computer programming but I'd be happy if Chromebook users could just access the "regular" webplayer as opposed to whatever the heck we are currently seeing on Chromebooks.

I am having issues as well.

On my Chromebook there is no way to access the spotify settings menu or radio and the music doesn't play when I hit play.  I have to listen to Spotify using my phone because the Chromebook app is not working.  Adding a song to a playlist isn't easy either.  The three dots that would normally open a song menu to add it to a playlist doesn't work either.  Sometimes for some reason when I hit play on on my Chromebook music will start playing on my phone.  That is not where I want my music to play.  Please fix this soon or tell me how to fix it Spotify.  Premium is seeming less worthwhile by the day.

Under Spotify downloads there is an option for Chrome - after logging it it says "install app"  - that just takes you back to the download page. So why does it say download app when all it appears to be is the webplayer?
