Web Player Stoped playing any song

Recently the spotify web player just stopped playing anything in any browser. I still can click in any menu button, but if I click on any play buttons (a song, album, playlist, whatever) it doesn't work.

Anyone having the same problem?

I think I may have figured something out (at least for myself).  When I enter the application through the google apps, it gives me a lengthy URL.

 

https://open.spotify.com/browse/featured?utm_campaign=acquisition_chromewebstore_gb&utm_content=gb##...

 

If you remove all the characters after the the ? the app will reload and work.  There must be something messed up in their cookies making the application not play.

Same problem here, using Chrome.  The new look web player is rotten and glitchy.  And my employer won't let us download the app, so I'm stuck.  Fix this Spotify!

Yup. Songs won't play on Web Player. There's a green bar at the bottom pointing to "Other Devices" saying it's because I'm currently listening on Web Player... but I'm not. I'm TRYING to listen on Web Player. Logging in and out of my account through browser or my phone isn't solving the problem...

seems to be working now, may have just been an issue with the server or something

Seems to be working for me now too, but the interface still sucks.

Yes, I had the same problem with the new Web player. It wouldn't play anything.

 

Then I tried going to the profile settings page, and also opened Spotify app on my iPhone. I'm not sure if any of those actions made a difference, but then the music started playing on Web player.

 

But then I closed the profile settings, and the music stopped playing. Very frustrating. This new web player is glitchy as **bleep**.

Yep.

As if the new UI completely removing all functionality (as in play queue, browsing radio, Discover, all the parts that actually work) as well as looking like complete **bleep** (why do I have to click through fist sized album art to play a darn song off an album) wasn't bad enough, I can't even play songs.

Web player is the only way I can listen to Spotify at work because network settings block me from the desktop app, so this sucks. 

This is a pathetic, out of touch, and counterintuitive "upgrade" which does nothing but **bleep** off paying customers, haven't heard a single positive about the new UI. 

Pull it together spotify.
