Over the past two years, the music streaming industry has seen a significant increase in user base.
And with data getting cheaper all over the world, music lovers are increasingly turning to services like Spotify. Present in more than 180 countries, it had more than 422 million users in the first quarter of 2022.
But as is the case with the majority of popular streaming services, users have complained about bugs such as offline music not working on Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Discover Weekly playlist updating. with the same songs as last week.
This renders the Spotify app for Windows completely unusable for those affected. Common troubleshooting solutions such as restarting Windows, logging out and back in, and reinstalling the app don’t seem to help either.
Spotify crashes when changing songs. Anyone else get this? If I change songs while listening to another, there is silence for a second and then the app crashes. It’s really starting to annoy me, it’s been going on for two days. I tried deleting the cache but nothing happened. Someone?
The app was working fine two days ago. Yesterday, when it opened automatically, a message saying “Spotify has stopped working” forced me to close it. He did it several times and I gave up. He still does it today. I restarted it several times, uninstalled and reinstalled, tried compatibility mode and just about every other tip I could find but nothing worked. It says it’s no longer compatible but I don’t understand how it’s possible when nothing has changed and it was working fine two days ago.
Luckily, Spotify developers have acknowledged the issue and said that the affected team is investigating the Windows app crashing issue. But they haven’t shared an ETA on when it will be fixed.
When the developers release an update that fixes the problem, we’ll update this space to let you know, so be sure to keep checking PiunikaWeb.
