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.
just started working now!!
OH MY GOSH THANK YOU
It's fixed! Thank you guys!!!
It working now!! Thank you, Spotify!
Two additional quick comments -
1. I tried the suggestions on this thread and it diodn't solve the problem for me.
2. When skipping, the error that is returned is - 403. This is hapenning 5 times. After that Spotify starts playing the 6th song, and after another 9.5 sec it stops (it shows as if it continues to play, but it doesn't).
I'll appriciate a response from Spotify.
Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community!

I'm still having this issue. It only seems to happen on Chromium-based browsers, which would also make sense as to why it was occurring on Chromebooks. I'm using raw chromium. It also started happening on the same day as everyone else; October 5th.
For me it didn't solve the problem as well
Also - I've tested it on another Chromium based accessible browser, and it is the same. It is something that was done on the Spotify side around October 5th
Hey there @Red203 and @Azelphuren,
Thanks for keeping us in the loop!
Our tech teams are currently looking into this - you can find out more info here.
Keep in mind that they've done some of their magic backstage so it should be resolved like @Elharp6520 shared.
However, if you're still having troubles, make sure to share your details in the Ongoing Issue thread so we can pass them along.
Hope this is helpful! Have a lovely day 🙂
Hi, I'm still having the issue. As @Red203 mentioned, I'm getting four failed POST requests, with error 403. Three out of four seems referring to "widevine-license", but it's strange, since my browser can play DRM content with widevine without issues.
Leaving a screenshot here, may be useful.
Same thing on my computer - the problem persists
