Spotify Problems

Hello,

I really tried a lot of things but i don’t get Spotify running on my XA2 device with sailfish. Do you have a solution for me?

In the Beginning using Sailfish installing Spotify was compleatly easy and worked, now (i think after the update) i tried different Apps and searched here in this forum and nothing worked :confused:
I’m not a total beginner, but please try to find a way I can unterstand :smiley:
Thanks

Should we assume you mean solutions other than using the Android app?
That works just fine for me. I’d prefer a native application, but at least a while back there were no good options.

Its sad that at some point some people from within the company wrote an app (native) that never got published.

Which application do you have? Where can i find it? For me its not important which solution you have, i only want to hear musik and have a premium spotify-account.
The normal android spotify app doesn’t work in my case. Perhaps you have a way to change it? I tried to reinstall, cache and so on.

I have the regular Spotify Android app installed through Aurora Store. Just updated to the latest version, still works just fine.

in my case - no. I don’t know why. I tried it with the Aurora Store but it always quit starting after 1-2 Seconds. Its getting black and then the app minimize.

Did you try the direct download? https://download.spotify.com/android/SpotifyAndroid.apk

I already tried a lot of apks (also older ones) and for you a fresh version directly from Spotify. It doesn’t work. It starts and suddently shut down :confused:.

Maybe you can find a logfile somewhere if the app crashes :thinking: Did you modify any of the system files of your os?

FWIW, I had the same issue. After upgrading SFOS, reinstalling the app a couple times, solving an unrelated problem about installing apk files, I went to Settings -> Applications -> Spotify and cleared the cache and app data. Then it got a bit further, but crashed still. Then I went into Settings -> Applications -> Spotify -> Android Settings and gave it all possible permissions. Then it actually started and I was able to log in again.

All the ideas haven’t worked in my case. I don’t know why I find it so late but this site helped me: https://www.ncartron.org/spotify-on-sailfishos.html

/!\ Thanks to e-ddie on the SFOS Telegram group, just adding a small advise:
you want to scroll to the bottom of the page, and select “Authorize using Browser”:

I’m a little bit disappointed, that the original app doesn’t work but the Hutspot in combination with the librespot works. One thing i don’t like is that every time I use this app i have to register my Spotifyaccout. But it works =)
