    The Spotify ‘share to Instagram Story’ feature is broken on iOS and this is bugging me more than I thought it would. cc @SpotifyCares

    @B3thyMurray @SpotifyStatus I'm having this same issue with my Galaxy s7 edge. It started after the last app update 2 nights ago. I've already logged out and back in and uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Still the same issue.

    @BanjoCalrissian @vsmishek @Spotify @instagram @SpotifyCares having the same issue! came to twitter to make sure it wasn't just me.

    I think one of the bigger embarrassments of the Android ecosystem is the poor podcast support. Pocket Casts is great, Google Podcasts crashes, Play Music plays the wrong episodes from Android Auto, Spotify is useless, and BeyondPod is broken.

    @Spotify can you PLEASE delete my Discover Weekly data or do better because mine is TERRIBLE every week. Thx

    @AskPS_UK I did check it wasn't present, but I did resolve the problem, I had a USB hard drive attached I removed that, installed Spotify when I reconnected the USB hd it said I had two versions and where to delete it. Thanks

    @SpotifyCares Still not working! I've done soft resets on my phone, deleted the app twice, logged out, logged in, logged out of all my accounts (I have access to my company's accounts as well) - nothing's working!

  • slyyypanda
    slyyypanda (@slyyypanda) reported

    @aureylian The problem here is that copyright is copyright whether it’s an in-game soundtrack or something a streamer plays on Spotify. Either way the streamer doesn’t have license to the track. The law doesn’t differentiate between the two. So to condemn one is to condemn the other.

    spotify’s “your top songs of 2017” playlist is exposing how terrible 2017 was for me

    Anyone else having this problem. I have chrome and spotify open, and if I switch to chrome while spotify is playing then the music starts to crackle. All other programs I switch to are fine. @Spotify @googlechrome help!

    Aureylian △⃒⃘ (@aureylian) reported

    @Spamfish There's a difference in playing a game (unless youre using the radio feature in GTA) and literally openly playing spotify. If I go to a channel and literally 100% of their content I can't use or clip because there's copyrighted songs in the background, it's a problem

    @SpotifyCares is the best costumer service in @Twitter! Fast and useful answers. That's all. And can't believe brands still don't get it...

    @itsDanBull Never used Spotify and I don't ever want to, but if you feel the need to step away from YouTube I'll make an account just for you. (As long as it's not a subscription service, I've never checked).

    @TechJournalist Other than the upgrade process, I'm not seeing any issues. Well, one. My installation of Spotify disappeared but I was able to install the SNAP and all was good.

    That one weird person (@oneweirdperson1) reported

    @SpotifyCares I am using Spotify Premium, i have read on the website that more people have this problem after the last update. I have a Samsung S7 and the whole app keeps shutting off after 10 to 30 seconds

    We’re having some issues updating the broken Killustrators audio file on spotify! If you were planning on listening to the podcast via itunes (yes itunes, not spotify) please download it ASAP!! The itunes file will likely be down all weekend!

    The beat go off?? (@Tim_Burton7) reported

    @haynknight70 @PardonMyTake @Spotify Now, see you do have me there. I think it’s cuz I’m using the web player of Spotify in chrome tbh. Might be all on my end and not on anyone else. But, since it is “now-a-days” I blame others for my problems 😃 #Monnn

    @SpotifyCares Can't use @Spotify since the update. Plays for about 30 seconds and then crashes. Restarted phone & cleared cache, did not solve problem. Waited an hour and it's still happening. Moto x4, android version 8.1.0.

  • WitnessesNYC
    witnesses (@WitnessesNYC) reported

    It's probably a privacy issue, but I wish I could get even more data from Spotify. We're enjoying a modest but steady stream of Spotify listeners rn (not easy given our style), and I didn't actually do anything. Wish I knew who to thank, whether it be a playlist, algorithm, etc.

    @SpotifyCares instagram stories share feature is broken... when sharing I’m prompted to log in to Instagram. Once I do it cycles back and I can’t add to story.

    BAMA-METAL: I survived ATL BABYMETAL2018 (@imboredatwork44) reported

    @NRein96 Apparently the official channel leaked it then took it down. Looks like it's on spotify and itunes though. I heard it on a bootleg youtube video. No MV with it (yet).

  • AmyGardnerECR
    Amy Gardner (@AmyGardnerECR) reported

    @TheBlakeMorgan @Spotify Indeed. The pre-72 and the AMP-act parts have minimal sausage-making problems (if any, frankly) so those are clean wins. How the MLC part of MMA was going to work was always in the fog to some degree, and was always going to be an uphill struggle. Fingers and toes crossed.

    Swipe up control center, tap the music widget; you expect it to launch Spotify, but no, I have to long press and even then it still won't bring me to the app! I have to swipe down AND THEN launch the app manually!

    @BoMarcusWin Kindly wait for 3 secs, once you get the authorisation, the page of login will appear but need not click login again. In case you click on login again it will authorise again and direct you to the Spotify page.

    @Spotify Why you gotta add terrible music to my favorites list. That is by far the dumbest shit I have ever seen

  • buktuks
    Fanta (@buktuks) reported

    @SpotifyCares It has gotten worse I play a song within 10-20 seconds the app closes out. This is very frustrating I prepay my service and I'm paid up until 12-31-18 but I won't be paying for Spotify anymore.

  • _jameshatfield_
    James Hatfield (@_jameshatfield_) reported

    @TrendTrader007 @honourbrite I’d compare them to say Spotify vs Apple Music - both models have advantages. It’s not clear if the independent service model will work out but it is clear that the integrated model will never fail.

    jewelstar404 (@jewelstar404) reported

    @SpotifyCares There is no specific error messages, it just blank page even in good connection. I'm using oppo f1s, android vers. 5.1, and i juat barely update my spotify. I can play my song and playlist that already saved but can't open other things.

    @SpotifyCares Feature suggestion: Let us “mute” artists do they don’t appear in radios, playlists etc. I’ve thumbed down the same track dozens of times and still hear it.

    @SpotifyCares On both I open the app, start scrolling through a playlist or my album list and it closes down. If I select a song within 20 secs it's fine but if not it closes at around the 20 secs mark

    My new obsession seems to be listening to terrible covers of Movie/TV Soundtracks on Spotify. Not intentionally bad/different covers, just people doing a bad job of covering the song...
