Spotify Suffers Multiple Outages In January As Hundreds of Employees Receive Layoff Notices

Spotify has experienced two major outages in the last few weeks, coming shortly after a significant downsizing of their staff. With hundreds suddenly without jobs and customers unable to access tunes, this difficult period for Spotify shows no signs of letting up.

Social media users were not pleased about the recent outages experienced by Spotify. The streaming giant responded to concerned customers via its “Spotify Status” Twitter account, revealing that technical problems began on January 13th and continued into yesterday.

Spotify Status wanted to ensure a quality listening experience for all users and quickly addressed any potential problems that arose yesterday morning. Thanks to user reports, the team was able to act swiftly and effectively resolve the issue in under an hour!

As the dust settled from Spotify’s abrupt policy change, disgruntled users quickly voiced their plans to seek out more music-friendly platforms like Apple Music.

Despite the uncertainty of current times, Spotify continues to remain reliable in providing customers their favorite tunes. Its user base is now bigger than ever with an even larger selection of music content ready for streaming anytime!
