I’ve just checked in again, and it had a pop up ad saying something about a bug fix. And it works again! I’m not too sure what happened, but hopefully it’s been fixed for everyone who had that problem.

I am having the same problem as well, I have updated my phone, restarted it, redownloaded the app, and logged in and out multiple times.

This is crazy, I have an IPhone 6S, I don’t have premium, and I have the IOS 11.3. About 40 mins ago this problem occurred where I can’t open my playlists that I have crates nor any of the ones Spotify generates . Although when this problem happned I was currently listening to 1 of my playlists, and all of the songs load and play, as usual, which is pretty weird if you ask me, since I’m also unable to shuffle that playlist.

I was literally on Spotify last night and everything was working fine but this morning I was getting ready to drive and every time I would click on to any playlist I would have this banner saying “Couldn’t Open Link” and then underneath it said “Spotify can’t open this type of link on this device” but I have an iPhone X so I’m like maybe it’s the app so I deleted it and redownloaded it and I’m still having this problem. I don’t know if it’s because I have a free subscription and they’re trying to force me to get premium or what but I am not happy.
