At a time of fierce competition between music streaming services slip ups can prove costly and so Spotify will be concerned of widespread error reports to its service this morning (3 February).



Spotify users have taken to social media to complain that the service is not working. The most common complaint is songs randomly skipping every five seconds or so.

While the majority of the users reporting the problems appear to be in Europe, the issue is occurring across the globe. Spotify said it was aware of the problem and was working to resolve it.

The Drum has contacted Spotify for more information and is awaiting a response.
