Unable to open SMS links in Spotify - opens add.adjust.com

Unable to open SMS links in Spotify - opens add.adjust.com

Hi.  My links won't work (ie: songs sent to me by text) I used to be able to tap the link and it would take me to Spotify to hear the song.  

Now when I tap the link it takes me to add.adjust.com, then to the App Store, back to Spotify without playing the specific song I'm looking for. 

This is new and just started happening today.  Anyone out there who could help fix this?  Thanks

Help's arrived, @Parnell!

 

Would you be able to share what device, operating system and version of Spotify you're using? Also, any screenshots of the error and the steps you followed to recreate this would help so much! 🙂


Cheers!

Hi thanks so much for the reply!

 I have an iPhone/iPad, spotify premium, and these are the steps that happen. 🙂

if my man sends me a song/link I used to be able to click on it and it would take me directly to the song on the spotify page.  

Now it takes me to app.adjust.com then to the App Store.  When I click on the spotify app icon it takes me to spotify without connecting me to the song. 

Sooo takes me in a circle to nothing and nowhere.

maybe you can help me 🙂

Thanks-Kerri

I've had the same thing start happening in the last few days. I'm on ios 11.2.6, iphone SE, spotify premium, version 8.4.45.564

Thanks for those details, @mdp!

 

Just to check...
- Do you have the Spotify app downloaded on your iOS device? Or, do you listen only via the web player on your phone?
- How are you sending the song? Is this directly from iMessage > by clicking Spotify in 'App Store for iMessage'? Or, is this via Spotify > Share > Messages?

 

Let me know! 🔍

I get Songs and playlists from friends as sms and when I click at the link chrome will open up and ask if I want to play on Spotify. Earlier this button opened up Spotify. Now it only shows a question if I want to go to App-store. What has happened? Is there a solution?

Hi @Parnell@CR32 and @mdp,

We've just spoken to our team again and they'd like to know the following:

 

Have you downloaded the app from your device's app store, or are you running a BETA version of the app?

Keep us posted!

The app on mine and the senders telephone are downloaded from Apples App-store. No beta versions.

CR32

I don't know what a BETA version is? Sorry 😐 and don't recall how I got the app on my devices.

I have this same problem. 

I have the exact same problem and have had it for ages. Sms links trigger «open in App Store?» (yes) > App store (press open Spotify) > Spotify opens, but not the song.

 

I end up having to search for the song. Takes a bit og the joy away..not to mention sending someone a song and have them jump through hoops to listen. 

It is an old issue. Surprised you sound surprised to hear about it!

On a Premium, new version, latest ios, IPhone 6Plus.
