Error Linking Spotify to Tinder

*Sent to Tinder support, thought I'd try here to*

 

Trying to link Spotify to Tinder, every attempt ends in "Error Loading - Something went wrong! - Check Connection and try again". I press "Okay" and am returned to my profile. Now where it used to say "Add Spotify to Your Profile", there is an ominous swirly loading circle. Upon backing out of editing my profile and going back in the circle disappears to be replaced by "Add Spotify to Your Profile" and the cycle continues. I have tried using Wifi and Cellular Data neither work but have full functionality in any and all other applications.

 

Heres some info:

- My phone is a Google Pixel 3 running the latest software.

- It seems the connection process IS getting initialized and the "Error Loading - Something went wrong! - Check Connection and try again" is not pointing in the correct direction. Upon a failed connection between Tinder and Spotify I am able to go into Spotify account settings and revoke Tinder app permission in my Spotify account. If connection was the problem how would this permission that I've given in Tinder app go to Spotify?

- Revoking Tinder app permission in Spotify settings "resets" something, I am able to get further in the process then simply "loading screen" - "Error Loading - Something went wrong! - Check Connection and try again". Upon permission revocation of Tinder in Spotify I can proceed to one of two screens depending on if I'm logged into Spotify or not. One will let me log in to Spotify on Tinder the other will recognize that I'm logged in and let me give permission to link Spotify and Tinder. Alas, after this "bonus screen" the same error message pops up.

Here are my attempts at solving this:

- Uninstalling and reinstalling both Spotify and Tinder.

- Logging out of all active instances of both Spotify and Tinder.

- messing with various settings in both apps and on device to no avail. (maybe I'm missing something).

I thank you for any and all help you can provide. I hope I have explained the problem in a fairly succinct manner, if you have any questions ask away!

 

Edit: Seems very probable the culprit is android 9 compatability, let's hope it get's a fix soon!

Hello!

 

Has anybody found a way to fix this yet? I’m having the same issues on my iPhone; I can click the link to connect Spotify to Tinder, which only magically opens Spotify, and then nothing. If I go back to Tinder, it gives me that same error. Hope this will get fixed soon!

 

Cheers!🍻

I solved it, the problem is created for  the last update of tinder ver 10.4.1. Something is wrong with the integration.  I uninstalled the app, later I deactivated automatic update in the playstore, and activate protect my updates. I installed an old version of Tinder ver 9.4.1 from an apk for the procedure, I activated the option to install apps from other source different of playstore. I  tried to connect with spotify and Voilà the apps was been connected. Later uninstall the app apk and download the app for the playstore and restore all the changes than I did.  Something is wrong with the integration for the side of Tinder or the side of spotify the trouble appears after of the last update of tinder to the version 10.4.1.WhatsApp Image 2018-12-27 at 9.28.34 PM.jpeg

Hey guys, i installed an older version of tinder - 10.3.0 - and spotify integration worked. But after i updated tinder with The newest version,my tinder got little bugged. Sometimes it shows The New version, Sometimes it get back to older version - 10.3.0. How i get rid of this issue? Help

Uninstall tinder, and install old version. Disable the option to update. Tinder has a new version but I didn't probe the integration with the last version. Maybe the bug with the integration was solved or not. Only use one version.

Thank for advice Man. 

 

I uninstalled tinder, deleted my account, installed again and The problem persists. It keep changing/mixing tinder layout between old 10.3.0 and New one, its a mess. Not even talking about spotify integration this time 😞

Hey man. It's me again. I deleted all data, cache, nothing worked. It's a mistery. I have the newest version installed and the layout is all outdated. 😞

Android 9 too.

Confirmed that on version 10.3 the integration with Spotify is working. I've downloaded tinder version 10.3 from apk monk.

I have the same issue. I wrote to tinder for help, and tried uninstalling the apps, deleted all the information, close all the sesions and deleted the access of tinder to Spotify and renewed. I probe changing settings in spotify. I tried to connect without the instalation of Spotify app but the issue remain.  My Cellphone is an Asus with OS Android 8.1.

Im having the same issue.

 

Galaxy s9, android 9 one ui beta

 

So it seems like it's specific to Android Pie. I didn't have this issue previously, even while still on pie, so it must be something caused by this last update to tinder on the 20th (or the one before that), probably not an issue with spotify.

I have the exact same issue on a Nokia 7 Plus running Android 9.

 

It did work fine in the past weeks on this device but from some point a few days ago I received the said error. Maybe there was an update that caused it?

I have a GM 5 Plus and I'm having the same issue, it may be something about android one. Since everyone's saying they have pixels, the common part is the OS.

My best guess is that eithee tinder or Spotify have not modified this syncung process to work on Android 9. My assumption is Tinder.
