Spotify could not start
Spotify sign in
For Spotify to work properly, it is important to verify that our device is compatible and properly updated, otherwise, we could have problems to enter the app or when using it.
It will be enough to disable it and check the operation of the Swedish application. As we always insist in these cases it is important to re-enable the firewall once the check is done to minimize the time in which our computer is vulnerable.
This will show us a page where we have to indicate our email address or user name on the platform and click Send. Automatically, we will receive an email message at the address linked to our Spotify account.
Another possibility is that we get an error message indicating that there is no Spotify account associated with that email address. In this case, it is possible that we are entering the wrong address.
In the case of wanting to log in with the platform from an Apple device, it is important to know that we will need to have iOS 13 or later installed, an Apple ID with two-factor authentication and the iCloud session open.
Now, we go down the configuration settings until we find the Show advanced settings button and look for the Startup and window option. Within it, we find the setting we were looking for, Open Spotify automatically on computer startup. Next to it, a drop-down list appears with three options, that the application starts when Windows starts but minimized, that it starts normally with system startup and the option No, which is the one we have to select to prevent the Spotify application from starting with Windows 10 startup automatically. From that moment, we will see how when we turn on the computer, it will no longer open automatically.
If none of the Spotify problems you are having are solved here, we will also go over how you can contact the service in case the crash is global or if the problem is not yours but a general problem with your account, for example.
Spotify may be down and this may be the problem. If what you can’t do is open the app or listen to anything, it may be due to a general failure of the service worldwide or in a specific region. In that case, we can check it on websites like Downdetector. Downdetector is a site that records crashes in all kinds of services. Among them, Spotify. You simply have to open it and you will see a series of boxes with options such as Instagram, Movistar and other operators. Among all the services we find the green icon that interests us and we must click on it. We will automatically see a map of failures in real time and a timeline.
If you have not seen that there is any specific fall, it is possible that the problem is in your phone. It is quite common that the Spotify application on Android gets stuck and does not allow us to close the song, for example. In that case, what we must do is to force stop on the cell phone.
In this article we will see the ways in which we can enjoy this great service, currently it is available to be used from Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Windows Phone, Symbian, iOS, Android and others… In this post I will also provide information about this that may be useful, recommendations for proper use…
We can use our Spotify account from our computer, with the help of our favorite web browser (Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Edge or the one of your preference), we just have to go to the following web link:
In this scenario, the service is going through technical problems that prevent its normal operation, this is known as «Spotify Down», the down service prevents users from enjoying it (and does not allow us to access it), if we are facing this scenario what is left for us to do is wait.
One of the things that we must always keep in mind is that this service has rules of use, which we accept when we register, these rules are both for free users (Free) or paid (Premium), as these rules are intended to discourage possible actions by the user that can be considered abuse of use in its functions and features; but beware they are very easy to cum
