Introduction

Spotify Web Player may stop working for you with the following error messages: “Spotify Web Player an Error Occurred” or “Oooops, something went wrong. Reload”. This quick guide provides a simple fix for you.

How to Fix Spotify Web player not Working

No matter what may cause Spotify web player to stop working for you, the workaround is to install Firefox User-Agent Switcher or Chrome User-Agent Switcher. Then set the switcher to Microsoft Edge.

The User-agent switcher add-on allows you to mimic another browser from your current browser.

If you use Firefox, install user-agent for Firefox. Alternatively, if you use Chrome, install the Chrome switcher. For the steps to install and configure for Chrome, scroll to the end of Firefox steps.

How to Configure Chrome User-Agent Switcher to Fix “Spotify Web Player Not Working”

Before the Chrome User-Agent Switcher can fix “Spotify Web Player an Error Occurred”, you have to configure it. Here are the steps:

  • From Chrome browser, open Spotify Web Player page (opens in a new tab/page) – https://open.spotify.com
  • On Chrome, top right click User-Agent Switcher – Has Access to this site [1] (You MUST Perform this task with https://open.spotify.com open on Chrome browser.
  • Next, on the Select a Desktop Browser section click Microsoft Edge [3] (To confirm it is Microsoft Edge, hover over the icon). Then beneath the User-Agent: Microsoft Edge on Microsoft Windows [1], enter spotify.com [2]. Reload Spotify Web Player on Chrome. It should now work well. If you receive the error message “Spotify no longer supports this version of Microsoft Edge”, see below for resolution.

Now open Spotify on Chrome, Spotify Web Player should now work as expected.

After installing and configuring Chrome Browser User-Agent, you may receive the error message “Spotify No Longer Supports This Version of Microsoft Edge”. For the fix click Spotify No Longer Supports This Version of Microsoft Edge (Fixed).

Tip
If after installing User-agent for Chrome, Spotify web player is still not working for you, I strongly recommend you switch to Firefox.
