Spotify back for all users after widespread outage

Update: Spotify’s service has been restored for all users, according to the Spotify Status Twitter account. Original post below.

Many users of the popular music streaming service Spotify are unable to log in to their accounts this morning in a large outage, according to a Spotify Twitter account and many agitated users around the web.

“We can confirm that most users are unable to log in at this time,” the Spotify Status Twitter account wrote about an hour ago. “We are working on a fix, watch this space.”

Many users around Twitter complained (as they should) about the outage. One tongue-in-cheek response from Hannah Innit in London notes: “#spotify down. i have absolutely no idea how i’m going to get through the last 27 minutes of the week.”

The company followed the first tweet up with another post, saying: “Still working on login issues. Please note that this will affect our website login as well. Thank you for your patience!”

Spotify has since issued the following update: “Some users are able to log in, but we are still seeing errors. Sorry for the inconvenience, another update is coming soon.”

Is your service out? Let us know in the comments.
