Hey all, checking in. While I have the same problems as others (such as the song starting then the error popping up, etc.), I don't think it's any sort of conspiracy theory to push us on another platform. I think the devs made an update Chromebooks with limited hardware may not be able to support. Honestly, I have a hunch that a solution is either very close, or very far away. Feel free to offer any potential solutions. I miss my music too lol
Hi all, Wanted to drop my last comment on the matter. For about a week, Spotify's service was working for me, now, when I attempt to play any music, my Spotify kinda just doesn't want to play any music for me. I wanted to also allow the person above me to show that writing a nasty message on how much of a bad time you had because Spotify's programmers were slacking to fix the program, does not make Spotify work any faster. Being patient, and allowing Spotify to reply to kind-hearted messages that have no intent of de-throning Spotify's staff are messages that will make Spotify staff want to work. (Also, bolding a word in your message adds no effects to your question. if anything, it only makes you stand out.)
Oh, one last thing. Be kind. The last thing that moderators want is someone throwing a temper-tantrum in their face. If we keep up our act, this whole scene will inevitably turn into a hot dumpster fire. Thanks. Have a nice day.
Yes, I have this problem as well. I've checked my Chrome a million times and it still says up to date. This has been going on for at least a month and nothing is changing. I've started using a different website for my podcast and started using soundcloud for music. Very disappointing because I really miss using Spotify. I will send a picture of this message and my chrome is up to date.
I had the same problem you were having, and I don't know if they're caused by the same things, so take my solution with a grain of salt. What caused me to have this error code is that I accidentally clicked 'Block' when the pop-up asking for my permission to play 'protected sounds' or something came up. The solution I found was to enter 'chrome://settings/content' into your addressbar, which will bring you to your chrome's settings for various permissions, scroll down to the bottom of the list of permissions, and clickthe one that says 'protected sounds' and remove spotify from the blocked list.
Edit: Spelling and changed 'taskbar' to 'address bar'
Okay, so I've been experimenting for a while, and something random happened. I opened my Task Manager by pressing the key with the search key+esc (this can also be done with Shift+esc on some chromebooks). I quickly disabled some blockers in place set up by my Chromebook's administrator, then opened up a playlist. For some reason, my music started working, and I'm very happy. Please let me know if this works for you. So sorry this hasn't gotten the attention this deserves.
