Spotify experiencing outages worldwide among other websites

Tuesday morning and you're trying to listen to some music? It's possible that you'll have to use something other than Spotify.


On Tuesday, users of the popular music streaming app Spotify reported a slew of errors and access issues. After 11 a.m. CT, service outages and other problems began.

It’s unclear what’s causing the app’s problems or how long it’ll take to fix them. Spotify’s official status Twitter account recently posted an update stating that the company is aware of the issues and is investigating them.

Many users on social media are reporting that their music isn’t playing or that they can’t get into the app at all.
