About three years back in 2017, Spotify removed the support for Web Player on Apple’s own Safari browser. What’s more interesting was that they had no explanation for the same.
Now, all of a sudden, Spotify started working on all Safari browsers without any issue. It has been also updated on Spotify’s website’s supported browser’s section.
Back in 2017 when Spotify discontinued the support for web player on Safari, it is was not that much of a big deal since a dedicated Spotify app was available on the Apple App Store.
But then again it was a piece of bad news for all people who used to use Spotify on Safari via Web Player.
First spotted by a Reddit user wolfStroker, now you can see that Safari has been silently added to the list of supported browsers on the official Spotify website.
It was after three long years that Spotify added support for Safari and things should work fine hereafter.
Users with Safari web browser can visit https://open.spotify.com/ to access the Spotify web player.
If you encounter some issues, Spotify has also mentioned some troubleshooting tips if things don’t work.
If not working, try these workarounds:
- Your web browser may need updating. You can check and update it in the Help section of your browser’s menu.
- Try opening the web player in a private/incognito window. Find the option to open a new private/incognito window in your browser’s menu.
- If you see the message “Playback of protected content is not enabled”, check out Enable the web player.
- Check @SpotifyStatus for any ongoing issues.
- Some shared or public networks (e.g. schools/work/office) restrict access to certain services. You can contact those responsible for managing the network for more information.
You could find all your favorite songs, playlist, radio stations, and pretty much everything that you would find on the Spotify platform.
