Yesterday was Tuenti and today is Spotify. The streaming music platform has just suffered a drop that affects not only Spain, but also the rest of the countries where the application is available. Cases number in the hundreds and even thousands, for now. Apparently, the application does not allow to play music, with a message similar to “Spotify cannot play this at this time” . At the time of writing, the company has not commented on the matter, so we do not know if it is aware of the connection problems.

Spotify is down, doesn't work and won't let you play music
So is. The application has stopped working in much of the globe. As we have seen, the problem extends to both the mobile application (Android and iOS) and the program for desktop systems (Windows and macOS). As for the areas affected by the fall, the heat map on the Downdetector.com website shows us that the failures extend to a large number of countries.
In addition to Spain, the fall has affected countries such as France, Germany, the Netherlands and Poland. Problems with the application have also been experienced in the United States , as well as in Australia, Japan, Brazil and Argentina. Although the company has not given much data about the failures of the platform, everything indicates that the servers hosted in different countries have suffered a general decline. A possible large-scale organized attack is not ruled out either.

As for the problems of the application, some users say that it is not able to play songs and that it even closes automatically when trying to access it from Android and iOS . Others ensure that the application plays the songs correctly with a slight delay. Interestingly, the majority of bugs are concentrated in the iPhone and iPad application.
Spotify has confirmed through its official Tiwtter account that they are already investigating the problem. If we look back, everything indicates that the bugs will be resolved in the next few hours , probably throughout the afternoon.
We are investigating what is happening.
We will keep you posted! //t.co/G6eOt1X6Mv
