Spotify Not Working on Roku

Spotify is a popular music streaming service that is available on a wide range of devices, including Roku. However, some users have reported issues with Spotify not working on their Roku devices. In this article, we will explore the possible reasons for this issue and provide some solutions to help you get Spotify up and running on your Roku again.

One reason why Spotify may not be working on Roku is that the Roku device needs a firmware update. To fix this issue, you can check for updates in the Roku settings menu and perform any available firmware updates. Once the update is complete, try launching Spotify again to see if the issue is resolved.

Another reason why Spotify may not be working on your Roku device is that the Spotify app itself may need to be updated or reinstalled. To fix this issue, you can try removing the Spotify channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote, and choosing ‘Remove channel’. Then, restart your Roku device to clear its memory before reinstalling the Spotify channel.

If you are only having the problem of video not playing only on Spotify on Roku, then the problem is probably with an issue with your Roku device and not with Spotify and may involve the fact that your Roku device is a model that was produced prior to 2021.

Roku Spotify No Sound

If you are not hearing any audio on your Roku only when playing content on Spotify except for some random clicking sounds, it is most likely a problem with either an unstable internet connection, an out-of-date Spotify app, overused RAM or CPU or other problems with Spotify.

If Spotify is not working on Roku and Roku Spotify has no sound, first, check your Bluetooth connection and your Spotify Connect connection. Turn both connections off. Also, check the Volume Settings for all applications and speakers and system sounds.

If you use Windows 10, go ahead and Right Click on Sound. On the context menu, select the Open Volume Mixer Button. Check out the Volume Settings for all applications, speakers, and system sounds.

If you are using an Android or iPhone, go to Settings and check the sound and volume settings.

You can also try to restart Spotify or log in again. If this doesn’t solve the problem, check to see if there are any updates to Spotify available and, if so, download them and then try to see if Spotify will work normally again.

In addition, go ahead and check your internet connection. Check your available internet speed.

Also, see if you can delete and then re-install the Spotify app. If the app is corrupted, it could be the cause of the problem.

Go to Settings and then to Open App and then to Spotify. Begin to clear all the data and then log in again to Spotify and download all the music files that you had previously saved.
