Hi, i have a free acount and i primarily use spotify on google chrome and a few days ago the web player just stopped playing any music. i can nagivate to music and playlists etc but it does not play any songs. The play button is greyed out and unclickable. I tried relogging as well, didnt work. Then my friend(who has a premium account) logged in and the web player was working fine. I logged in with my own account(free) and it does not play music anymore. Is spotify now paid only?
Solved! Go to Solution.
SOLUTION: hey guys i heard some peoples problems were being fixed by checking they werent playing music on a different device, sadly this was not the case with mine.
i got in touch with spotify help centre and after trying their troubleshooting they gave me a test account to log in with and see if it worked if i was logged onto a different account. everything was fine when i logged in with the test account so the help centre guys just reset my account, got me to make a new account and transferred my music and other data from my old account over so everything is fine now.
TL:DR - old account is weird, made new account and spotify help centre transferred over all my data(music)
Browser- Google Chrome
I tried clearing cookies, using other browsers and restarting, diabling adblock etc. none worked
Spotify Webplayer on my PC didn't let me play, but my phone was fine.
Here's a step by step way to fix it, i took screen shots and circled the important parts, get Spotify app for your phone, log in your Webplayer and Phone for Spotify.
Next on the APP play a song, then tap the up arrow "˄"
Then click devices available
Click Chrome Browser where you are logged in, if it doesn't show up click play on computer
Then play button won't be grayed out
Hope it works, if not try all the things I mentioned that didnt work for me.
I had the same problem, solutions given here didn't fix it for me. Tried clearing cache, logging in and out, other browsers, choosing my computer as the playback device.
What eventually worked for me was going to the account page (https://open.spotify.com/settings/account), then choosing 'Full website'.
When on the full website, choose some music to play (it shows music you played recently).
I was redirected back to the web player page and voila, it was playing music again.
