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.
