Can't play podcasts-Couldn't Open Link

For some reason, whenever I want to play a podcast on my ipod touch, whatever podcast I try to access, I keep getting the following message.

 

Couldn't Open Link

Spotify can't open this type of link on this device

 

I Have a 6th Generation Ipod touch (it's about 3 years old), and I have the newest IOS system (10.3), and have the 8.1.0.623 Spotify app version. Songs and playlists work perfectly fine. I tried restarting my ipod (by holding down the power button until it said slide to power to off, then doing so), there are no available updates for either the IOS or Spotify app, and I have removed and reinstalled the Spotify App. I'm running out of ideas, and any suggestions would be appriciated!

I have the same issue on mine.I bought my iPod few days ago and it runs on the most recent iOS update which is 10.3.1 and I also updated Spotify to its recent update (8.4.623) so I don't know what the issue is.Has anyone found a way to fix this?

Hey guys, apologies that no one responded to this sooner. @Octobercrow are you able to let us know what version of iOS you are running and what version of the Spotify app you have installed? 

 

If you can provide that, I will escalate this up to see if we can get a response from the Spotify devs on this!

Hey @BigRedRev, can you try on different networks and see if that makes any difference? (e.g. try on different wifi networks or on mobile data if your device has it)

Also if you can let us know what device and what version of the Spotify app you're running, that'd be awesome!

@swanny,

 

I'm using an iPad Air 2.

Spotify version:  What is in the iTunes Store.  Just downloaded to the iPad an hour ago.

 

Tried on my phone (using data) and no problem.  On the iPad via wifi, no go.

I'm having the same issue on my iPad mini and I, too, have the most current release of Spotify. I updated just this week with the newest version. I get the same error message described. I'm using wi-if, my iPad doesn't have a mobile plan.
