Now, let’s have a look at some of the common fixes for the issue Spotify not playing.
Clear Cache and Flush DNS
If everything is working fine except that Spotify is not playing music, then there may be a problem in DNS cache on your system. Flushing DNS refreshes the system’s DNS Cache and makes sure that whenever you log into Spotify next time, its domain name gets properly registered.
- Go to settings
- Click on app.
- Go to Spotify then storage.
- Tap on clear cache.
- Also tap on Clear data.
If Spotify is still not playing after clearing cache, then delete Cleaning apps, process managers and battery managers. Many cleaning apps have a process-killing feature that effects Spotify also. Many times, process managers and battery managers interfere with the running processes that the Spotify uses. It happens whenever the screen is turned off or an app is running in the background for a long time.
What to do when Spotify is not working at all?
If you are not able to load Spotify by any method, then you need to clear out the cookies in your browser. The procedure is different for every browser. Go to settings and then privacy or history. Clear cookies from there and restart your browser. Try to play Spotify now.
When your account has been hacked
If you find songs in the play history that are not familiar to you, then it is possible that your account is hacked. Check that the hackers have also changed your password or it is the same. To solve this problem, log in to your account, go to Account overview and then click on Sign out everywhere. Now change your password.
