Popular music streaming service On Saturday morning, Spotify stopped playing music for millions of people all around the world. Tens of thousands of users complained that their feeds had abruptly halted and that they were unable to log in.

DownDetector received over 30,000 reports soon before 6 am PKT, with a surge immediately following.

The status page for Spotify’s online API, which tracks outages, revealed a “minor” partial disruption that only affected the music player and nothing else. However, this is also the most important aspect of Spotify.

An hour later, Spotify recognised the issue via its “Spotify Status” Twitter account and added that “we are looking into it.” Fast forward to 9 AM PKT, when Spotify was successfully able to resolve the issue and tweeted that “Everything’s looking much better now.”

The last time Spotify experienced such an interruption, it was due to outages in Google Cloud services, which also caused issues for many other apps and services.

This time, there have been no indications of routing issues or broader cloud-scale problems that could have harmed other services at the same time.

Spotify appears to be operational in Pakistan, and there have been no reports of outages in the last few hours on DownDetector.

However, it is conceivable that some unlucky users are still experiencing the aftereffects of the outage, so you may have to rely on other apps instead.
