Spotify DOWN – music app stops working for thousands in mystery outage

SPOTIFY has stopped working for tens of thousands of users in a mystery outage.

The popular music streaming app began having issues at around 9am UK time – and the problem is ongoing.

Spotify down – what's happened?

Online outage tracker Down Detector has logged tens of thousands of reports about Spotify.

These user complaints cite issues with music streaming, logging in, and casting to Sonos speakers.

A live outage map suggests that the problem is largely centred around the UK and Western Europe.

But it may also affect the USA once Americans wake up after Thanksgiving.

Spotify not working – what are users saying?

Hundreds of users have flocked to Twitter to complain about the outage.

Affected music fans say their songs aren't streaming, the app isn't loading properly, and they're living in dreaded silence.

One disappointed user wrote: "Welp #Spotify is down and now I can’t listen to Bad bunny’s new album and cry myself to sleep. @Spotify tell me when you’re not broken sweetheart."

Another moaned: "Why is Spotify down? I need to continue to give
@MileyCyrus all my steams #PLASTICHEARTS."

Spotify offline – is there an official response?

Spotify has tweeted from its support account on Twitter, confirming the issue.

The company wrote: "Something’s not quite right, and we’re looking into it. Thanks for your reports!"

It's currently unclear what's causing the problem.

We've asked Spotify for comment and will update this story with any response.
