Part 3. How to Fix Spotify Won't Work with Lenovo Smart Clock

I started having this issue yesterday where when I ask it to play music from Spotify, it says "Sorry, something went wrong. When you're ready give it another try." It also does not show up as an option to cast to. I've tried resetting as well as unlinking/linking Spotify to no avail. It was working perfectly fine on Thursday. Is there anything else I could try?

While using Spotify on your Lenovo Smart Clock is typically seamless, occasional hiccups can occur. If you're facing issues, like the ones reported by a Reddit user, follow these steps to troubleshoot and get your music playing smoothly again.

Common Issues and Solutions:

  • Execute a full reset on your Lenovo Smart Clock to address potential software-related glitches.
  • Reboot your internet router by turning it off and on. This straightforward step can refresh the network connection.
  • Access your router settings and eliminate any references to the Lenovo Smart Clock's IP addresses, ensuring a clean connection.
  • Add the Smart Clock to both a specific 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi band individually. Certain devices may perform better on specific frequency bands.
  • Enhance connectivity by relocating your Lenovo Smart Clock closer to the router, ensuring a stronger and more stable connection.
  • Rule out network-specific issues by taking the Smart Clock to another location with a different ISP and router.
  • If persistent issues arise, consider utilizing the Bluetooth connection method outlined in Part 1 as an alternative.
  • If Bluetooth playback remains problematic due to internet connectivity issues, consider downloading Spotify songs with a Premium account for offline playback. This provides a reliable solution that isn't dependent on real-time internet connectivity.
  • Downloading Spotify songs and playing them through Bluetooth offline is an effective and reliable solution. While this requires a Spotify Premium account, it ensures uninterrupted playback, even in the absence of an internet connection.
