My Question or Issue

My Spotify app freezes in the home tab whenever I open the app. I have tried reinstalling, logging out then in, clearing safari's cache (not sure if this affects it).  It just freezes here, I cannot do anything.

I just found a way to access the other tabs. Other tabs are working, I can scroll through my library and play songs. If I open Spotify using the browser (chrome app), then click on the GET APP button, it'll open up my Spotify app and go to the library screen. From here I can it, but if I go to the home tab, it freezes again.

See the other thread here:

Hi folks!

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 

 

@xyyz0723, you mentioned that you've already reinstalled the app, but would you mind going through the steps of a clean reinstall, as it's more thorough than a regular one? If this doesn't do the trick, could you try on a different phone to check if the issue persists?

 

@ParentalControl, we see that we've already replied to you about this in this thread. Let's keep the conversation going on that thread to avoid any mix-ups.

 

We'll be on the lookout.

I've done the clean reinstalling more than 10 times, even updated my iOS too. Nothing worked out. You need to fix this issue ASAP for iOS devices.

I’m having the exact same issue. HELP. it’s freaking frustrating. I’m on the verge of switching to Apple Music. 

For me when I reset my phone, I can scroll down for literally a millisecond, then it freezes again and nothing is responsive. Closing app, reinstalling, resetting arent doing anything. 

I need music in my life again 😞

Please fix

I tried it on iPhone XS Max and the Home Screen just got “frozen” there without any pictures.

Any one having the issue try this temporary fix: Re: Spotify on iPhone stopped working suddenly whe... - The Spotify Community

same issue here. this is pretty much the last straw for me on switching to Apple Music.

i've been having so many issues with Spotify for the past few years and there are so many things they are falling behind on, in comparison with other streaming services that it makes no sense for me to go for Spotify, when Apple Music is the same price and has much more to offer. i need to wait until my subscription runs out, until then, when on earth are they going to fix the issue, instead of moderators on this site telling us which thread to post what in. NEWSFLASH: WE DON'T CARE. make yourselves useful instead of reminding people which thread to post what in. people have been requesting changes on here since 2013 and nothing has been done. Spotify do not SEE these complaints or hear from their customers at all.
