Issue

For several months already I am experiencing that it is nearly impossible to switch the playback from my phone to the web browser after a long listening session on the phone. I select this web browser from the menu and nothing happens, no matter how much I try. Even reloading the page sometimes doesn't solve the issue and I need to go to my phone and either switch from there (works on first try) or kill the player on the phone so it disappears from the device list.

This is incredibly annoying and has been happening ever since I started using Spotify in the web browser.

I do not wish to install the app because I don't need another electron app constantly running on my computer if I have a perfectly good web browser that I keep open regardless.

Hey @diminDDL!

 

Interesting. Could you try with another browser to see if the same issue would occur there? If you use any extensions, try disabling them to see if it'd help. You can also try resetting Firefox's settings to the default.

 

Let us know how it goes. Cheers!

I stopped noticing this problem in the last few days. I think it might have been related to slower internet speeds, but I don't know for sure.

Hey @diminDDL,

 

Thanks for the confirmation.

Internet speed can be a deciding factor, yes. But if this pops up again, post, so we can investigate in detail.

 

Enjoy your tunes!
