"Unable to play track..." ??? on Spotify Free

Solved!

"Unable to play track..." ??? on Spotify Free

I'm getting this many times a day on my iPhone 5.  I see a lot of posts adressing this and have tried some suggestions including removing and reinstalling Spotify.  I am trying the free version to see if I want to switch from Pandora, where I do pay for a subscription.

 

What is the answer to stopping this error from happening, does anyoine know?

THere is absolutely no way I'm switching with this going on...

absolutely frustrating crap....

but just in case... how would I know?


Hi,

 

If you click the '...' next to the track, if it's on Spotify you'll have options like go to album/artist and start radio.

If it's offline you will only get a couple of options (not the ones listed above).

yeah i get this the other time on my end too.. i think it has to do with the internet and the cache in the app.

Just reinstall and it shouldn't come back.

Could it be a Local File? perhaps synced from your Computer?

Already tried the reinstall.....

Didn't even help
