Spotify is not responding
Spotify problems today
The truth is that there can be several reasons why Spotify can not open in Windows 10, therefore, the solution to the problem will depend on the cause of this. If what we can not do is to log in to Spotify, then the solution is to perform another series of checks.
Although in many cases over saying it, it never hurts to remember that a simple restart of the application can solve the problem if it is something simple and punctual. Therefore, it is something that we can try before proceeding with the following steps that we show below.
To try to fix the problem, what we need to do is to open a Windows file explorer, select our memory card drive and right-click on it. Then, we select the Format option and in the window that opens, we choose the corresponding file format and click on Format. Once the process is finished, we can check if Spotify does not open in Windows 10 or if on the contrary we have finished with the problem.
The error also appears if the Spotify application is configured to start together with Windows and will appear as soon as you start your computer. Follow the set of methods below to solve the problem successfully.
The simplest but most effective solution to this problem seems to be to kill all Spotify-related processes in Task Manager as soon as the error appears. It should fix the problem, as the error will not appear the next time you try to run the application. Try it next:
Note: If this does not solve the problem for you, I recommend that you check the Spotify Web Assistant process in the Background Processes section in Task Manager, as users have reported that this process also solves the problem.
If the above simple method is not enough, you may need to step up your game a bit and perform a clean reinstall of the Spotify application. This should solve the problem right away, but there are a number of steps you need to follow to make the process as good as possible.
The spotify application is not responding
Start with the basics! Check the volume on both Spotify and your device to make sure it’s not muted. Check your speaker or headphone connections. If nothing is wrong, recheck the app to see if it didn’t freeze. Try quitting the app and logging back in to see if this fixes the problem.
Finally, try restarting the device you are using to see if this fixes the problem. If Hardware Acceleration is on, try turning it off (this can cause problems on computers that don’t need it).
Typically, Spotify has a Premium option that allows you to download songs to listen to later, even if it’s not online. If you can no longer download songs, first try restarting your device and see if that fixes the issue. If you have an Android device, go to Settings > Apps > Spotify. There, select options to Clear Cache and Clear Data.
If you have any monitoring or housekeeping apps running in the background, these could also be impeding the download process. Disable them before downloading anything to make sure everything goes smoothly.
