List of 8 Best Ways to Fix Spotify Keeps Crashing

If you are also dealing with the Spotify app crashing problem on Android and looking for ways to resolve it, you have landed on the right page. This article will share a step-by-step guide on fixing Spotify that keeps crashing on Android. Let’s get started.

1) Restart the Android smartphone

how to, android

Restart your Android if you haven’t done so for a while. Sometimes, a simple restart can fix most of the hardware or software-related problem on Android.

Restarting an Android device stops all processes running in the background, including the ones conflicting with the functionality of Spotify. Hence, before following the next methods, restart your Android device.

2) Install the pending Spotify Updates

If Spotify is still crashing even after the restart, you need to install the pending Spotify updates from the Google Play Store. Outdated apps often show error messages or lead to app crashes or lag problems.

Hence, you need to open the Google Play Store, search for Spotify, and install the available update. If no updates were available, then follow the next methods.

3) Check if Spotify is Down

If there’s any problem with the Spotify server, the app won’t open. Even if it opens, you will face issues while streaming music.

Hence, it’s a good idea to check if there’s any problem with the Spotify service before coming to any conclusion. To check for a Spotify outage, you need to check Spotify’s status page at Downdetector or other similar websites.

If Spotify is down worldwide, you need to wait until the service gets restored. Meanwhile, you can use other music streaming apps for Android to stream music.

4) Disable the VPN/Proxy Settings

Many users have claimed to fix Spotify’s crashing problem by disabling their VPN or proxy settings. If we talk about the VPN, they change your IP address and assign a different location, forcing the Spotify app to connect to a different server.
