Macbook 2010 (A1342), but affects all OSes of desktop I have used
macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, but affects all OSes of desktop I have used
Whenever I open Spotify on any of its native Desktop editions (not including Web Player, or any mobile edition), it takes several minutes every time to load any playlists. Especially if they are extremely large (I have been sitting here on a gigabit connection waiting for over 30 minutes now and my "Liked Songs" still haven't loaded, it is a little over 3000 items long). I expect it to take a while to download and sort the entire set, but not 30 minutes long.
This has been very frustrating as sometimes in the time it takes to get into my playlist I have already passed the time to listen to it.
It seems like the only way to fix it is if there is an update available and you force the application to update itself or reinstall the program using the installer exe or copying it again. (most likely clears cache or some local information when the program gets updated or replaced). Which can also be an annoyance if the update takes a while to complete, or wait for the program to get over-written.
