Spotify down: Music streaming app hit by mass outage

Spotify has broken, with users complaining they are unable to listen to music at all.

Users said the app was connecting, or found themselves logged out and unable to get back in.

Problems were reported right across Europe, according to tracking website Down Detector, though the outage is likely to be global and it is just a consequence of where most people are trying to use the site.

Spotify maintains a Twitter account account – Spotify Status – that tracks problems and gives information about when they might be fixed. It was yet to post about the problems at the time of publication.

The new problems come just a couple of weeks after another major outage at the end of November. During that outage, some songs appeared to play briefly and then skip, but the new problems appear to have taken the service offline entirely.
