Spotify App Won't Recognize Premium

12/9/2021by admin

A basic Spotify premium plan costs £9.99 on their website, but if they were to allow users to upgrade to Spotify on the app, punch in their card details and away they go, it would mean the app.

  1. Install Spotify App
  2. Spotify Pc Won't Open
  3. Spotify App Won't Recognize Premium Password

For steps on how to play Spotify on your TV, check out Spotify on TV.

To see if your TV supports the Spotify app, go to the app store on your TV and search for Spotify. If your TV isn't listed, you can upgrade it with a soundbar or streamer that supports Spotify Connect.

Play directly from the TV app

If the Spotify TV app isn’t working for you:

  • Make sure your TV is connected to the internet.
  • Check your internet connection is strong. Try playing something else to test it.
  • Check your TV app store for any updates to the Spotify app.
  • Check your TV's software is up-to-date. If you don't know, check with the manufacturer for how to check and update the version software.
  • Check your TV is supported by Spotify. You can check this at Spotify Everywhere or with the device’s manufacturer.

Still not working?

  • Restart your TV.
  • Restart your WiFi.
  • Delete the Spotify app, then reinstall it onto your TV.
  • If possible, try a different WiFi connection.

If the problem persists, you may need to perform further troubleshooting on your device or WiFi connection. Check out the support sites for the service provider or device manufacturer for help.

If Spotify Connect isn’t working for you:

  • Make sure your TV is supported by Spotify. You can check this at Spotify Everywhere or with the device’s manufacturer.
  • If this is the first time playing to the TV from your phone/tablet, make sure they're both connected to the same WiFi network. (E.g. if your device’s connected to 4G instead of WiFi, it probably won't work).
  • Make sure you have the latest version of Spotify in your device.
  • Check all devices' software is up-to-date. If you don't know, check with your devices' manufacturer for how to check and update the version software.
  • Check you're not trying to play local files, as they aren’t supported by Connect.

Still not working?

  • Restart the Spotify app.
  • Close any other apps you’re not using.
  • Restart your devices.
  • Restart your WiFi.
  • If possible, try a different WiFi connection on the device you're playing from (i.e. your mobile or tablet).

If the problem persists, you may need to perform further troubleshooting on your device or WiFi connection. Check out the support sites for the service provider or device manufacturer for help.

If AirPlay isn't working for you:

  • Make sure all devices are on the same WiFi network. (E.g. if your device’s connected to 4G instead of WiFi, it probably won't work).
  • Make sure all devices' software is up-to-date. If you don't know, check with your devices' manufacturer for how to check and update the version software.

Still not working?

  • Restart the Spotify app.
  • Close any other apps you’re not using.
  • Restart your devices.
  • Restart your WiFi.

If you’re having trouble with Spotify and your Chromecast device:

  • Check the device you're playing from is connected to the same WiFi network as your Chromecast. (E.g. if your device’s connected to 4G instead of WiFi, it probably won't work).
  • Make sure your Chromecast software is up-to-date.
  • Make sure you have the latest version of Spotify in your device.
  • Check you're not trying to play local files, as they aren’t supported by Chromecast.

Still not working?

  • Restart the Spotify app.

Spotify is great as long as you don’t hit a bump with some sync problem. Oh, there’s the issue of your premium account not getting activated (or recognized in mobile), but that’s often just a server glitch.

If local files from your Mac or PC don’t get synced with Spotify and instead, Spotify shows you ‘similar’ tracks that you can download instead, that’s going to be one big headache. This usually happens when you have music tracks with metadata that’s way too similar to the ones Spotify has on its server.

Why does this happen? The issue crops up mostly when you’ve got fan-versions of a popular song, or remixes and other modifications that leave pretty much of the metadata intact. This makes Spotify think that you’re trying to upload a song that’s already up there and so, it prevents sync and offers to let you grab the cloud versions.

Too bad, eh. But there’s a quick fix.

This is what you should try if Spotify not syncing Local Files to iPhone:

(make sure you use the same account on Spotify for your Mac/PC as well as for your iPhone)

Step 1. First, connect both your PC/Mac and your iPhone to the same Wi-Fi network.

Step 2. Now, open iTunes on your PC/Mac and you should find your iDevice listed under the Devices tab on the sidebar.

Step 3. Create a new playlist from your system (on the device) and place one of the local files into this.

Step 4. Open Spotify on your iPhone and then select the newly created playlist.

Install Spotify App

Step 5. Enable “Available Offline.”

Step 6. You’ll now see a progress icon right beneath the song you’ve got on the playlist. This will get the song from the cloud to your Spotify app.

Step 7. That’s about it.

When you add more songs to this playlist, they get synced. Make sure you don’t turn off the offline sync feature.

Note that there’s a limit to the number of offline songs you can have on your device (each).

That’s all folks!
