UPDATE 6/9/2022 8:18 AM ET: It looks like Spotify is now working for users again. If you are still having issues, try logging out, closing the app completely, and relogging in.

If you want to save Spotify songs for offline listening and avoid this mess again, we recommend YT Saver Music Converter, which is the best music downloader available today that supports almost any music site.

Many users are reporting issues with playing songs and editing their playlists at this time. People on Twitter are also reporting issues with the service.


Another Spotify user notes that “All songs I start just stop after 6 seconds, with the app (MacOS) saying ‘can’t play the current song’.”

Users on Downdetector are noting similar issues. “Mine skip the songs after and after. i can’t listen to a song more than 2 seconds.”
