Whatever Chrome books run on?
My Question or Issue
Hi all, I'm asking this question for a friend so the details might be a bit hazy, but any and all help would be appreciated!
So the issue is pretty simple, when they click the "edit details" button when viewing a playlist, the box that allows you to edit the playlists title and everything doesn't appear!
We've also tried right clicking on the cover image and then using that "edit details" button, but that also does nothing.
Has anyone got any clue as to what this might be?

I still haven't managed to fix the issue, or test any work around's but In theory, (I haven't tested this yet) you might be able to install the Linux version of the client on your Chromebook IF it has an Intel CPU (Or an AMD one, but I *think* they only use Intel CPUs in Chromebooks?) and if it supports Crostini (Which I *think* most do but I'm not too sure).
Like I said, i haven't tried this yet, and it might well not work, but if you do try it and it does work please do tell me! (and maybe consider making a step by step guide for any other poor lost souls wandering the forum :P)
If you do want to give my workaround idea a go then here are the links to the articles I've read about how to do it, though, it would appear that they are all quite outdated 😕
This one is about how to actually install the app (Though you might need to reference the Spotify website to make sure the install command is still valid)
And then this one is another guide on how to prep the Chromebook, though it seems more dated than the others
Best of luck!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for getting back to us, we're happy to clarify your questions.
You're right that the version of the Spotify app for Chrome OS (the opperating system on Chromebooks) is more simmilar in functionality to our web player than the ones for Windows and Mac OS. The reason for this is that Chrome OS has a user interface based on the Chrome browser.
If you're able to istall the Linux version of the Spotify app on your device, than you shold be able to access those additional functionalities. However, we do recommend that you contact your Chromebook manufaturer so they can help you with that. This Google Support page can help you with that.
Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.
