I'm using a free plan and using a HP pavilion Chromebook on Chrome OS 65.
I cannot download the actual spotify player because im on Chromebook so i use the web player a lot but recently whenever a start a song, it skips after 2 second, then again and for every song. It just keeps skipping after a couple seconds.
I've went through a lot of threads but they were all from around 2014 so i created a new one, if there is a new answer.
Solved! Go to Solution.
yess the same thing happens to me and my administrator blocks incognito mode and I can switch the browser I literally can do any of the things that people say I should do it's really frustrating...
Here is what you do, go onto the spotify app on your chromebook and click on the 3 dots on the right hand corner, then click on app info. Once you do that, click allow protected content. and then refresh the app. Now it should be working! If youre on the web player on chrome browser then just press on the lock symbol on the left hand side of the url on top, then allow protected content right there. Refresh. Now it should be working for you too!
Thank you so much you are a life saver!!😘😁
Okay what do i do? cause i dont see the option on my browser. I attached a picture
I've been having the same problem! Unfortunately, I can't download it, because my computer isn't hooked up to a Google App store. I guess I'll have to use YouTube for the time being until this problem gets figured out.
I clicked on the lock image, but it didn't say "allow", nor did it ask to reload the page. See image
i dont see the images u attached. 😐
It worked! Thank you so much!
go to site settings then follow the rest of the instructions
The pop-up I receive does not show the "allow" button... also, cannot see your attached photos
Went to settings, allowed the flash, reloaded the page... failed to work 😞 not sure what the problem is... maybe my computer?
the administrator made 2 things block and can locked the settings
The same thing is happening to me that I have read in all of the comments. I have tried everything but it keeps skipping songs and then going to a commercial and then taunts me by playing nine seconds of a song and then stopping. This is getting ridiculous, I hope that the Spotify team will be able to fix this very soon this has been happening for the last two weeks, and I am not the only one that this has been happening to. I am on the web player and am using a Chromebook. I have tried going on both guest and incognito mode with no luck either way. I have talked to both friends and family members who have all had the exact same problem, it shouldn't be taking this long to fix, everyone that I have talked to myself included is frustrated that the problem is going on and no one seems to be able to do anything about it. This is not a problem on our end this is a problem on yours and I think that we all have been waiting patiently enough. 🙂
