You can do the following on a Windows PC. First try opening other sites. If they seem slow, check your internet speed here.
If nothing opens, go to your system icons. You should be in the lower right corner of your taskbar. Right-click the Wi-Fi or LAN icon (whichever you use) and select Troubleshooting . If you are using Wi-Fi, the default gateway that is not available is a common issue that troubleshooting can resolve. However, if you receive the message that the DNS server is not available, you must restart your modem. If this does not help, it is best to contact your internet service provider.
Disable Ad Blocking or Whitelist Spotify
Believe it or not, even if you use Spotify Premium, ad blocking ads can interfere with the Spotify webplayer. You can simply deactivate them using the browser's Add-on menu or the corresponding icon in the toolbar. However, if you use uBlock origin (which we recommend against other ad blockers), you can create a whole domain whitelist.
To do this, click the uBlock Origin icon in the toolbar. Open the Dashboard by clicking the fourth icon to the right of the large Enable / Disable button. Go to the Whitelist tab. Click on the list of sites and start typing. If you entered the address of Spotify, click Apply Changes . You should then close all windows and restart your browser. Your Spotify webplayer should be as good as new!
Clear browser cookies and cache
Cookies and cache help your browser work smoother by remembering important information such as logins. However, sometimes information may be "mis-stored", causing problems with your Spotify web player. So before you switch to more drastic solutions, you should delete the most recently used cookies and the cache. The steps you need to take should be pretty much the same on every browser, but we've included a step-by-step guide for Chrome and Firefox:
Deleting cookies and caching in Chrome
- Open the menu (three dots) in the right corner of your toolbar.
- Hover over More Tools until a smaller submenu appears on the left. From there, click Delete Browser Data .
- Set the time range in the drop-down menu to 24 hours and turn off browsing history if you do not want to delete it.
- Click Delete Data and restart Chrome. Your Spotify webplayer should be back to normal.
How to Clear Cookies and Cache in Firefox
- Open the menu in the right corner of your toolbar (three vertical lines). ,
- Go to Library then to History .

- Make sure that only cookies and cache are enabled, and then click Clear Now .
- Start your browser and log back in to Spotify. Your web player should work smoothly again.
We recommend deleting both cookies and cache. However, if you only want to delete Spotify cookies for security reasons, there is a way to do that. Open the menu again and go to Options> Privacy and Security> Cookies and Site Data . Click Manage Data and enter Spotify in the search bar. All cookies generated by the music service should be displayed. Just click Remove All Displayed . Restart Firefox and try again with the Spotify webplayer.
Update or change your browser.
The most important thing first! If you are a Mac user and you have not used Spotify for some time, you should know that the Spotify web player is no longer working on Safari. Switch to Chrome, Firefox or Opera. Obscure browsers are more likely to have problems with the Spotify webplayer. However, if you already use one of the three browsers mentioned above and are still having problems, you should check for updates.
If you have disabled the automatic updates for some reason, you can take some steps. In Chrome, click the menu button (three dots), and then select Update Google Chrome . If you do not see this option, your browser is up to date. In Firefox, go back to the menu and click Help followed by About Firefox . A new window should open and Firefox will automatically start checking and downloading available updates. Then restart your browser and see if it affected your Spotify webplayer.
Note: Chrome has had issues with the Spotify web player in the past, according to posts in the official Spotify forum. If you're not fussy about your browser, try using Firefox or Opera. Or Edge, if you are such a person.
