Spotify Error Code 18 is an error code that indicates there is a problem with the Spotify app’s cache, preventing it from functioning properly. This error code is often accompanied by a message that reads “The Spotify application is not responding. Please try again.”
The cache is a temporary storage area on a device that stores frequently accessed data for faster access. When the cache becomes outdated or corrupted, it can cause issues with the app’s functionality, such as the Error Code 18.
To resolve this issue, users can try clearing the cache for the Spotify app. This can be done by going to the device’s settings, selecting “Apps” or “Application Manager,” finding the Spotify app, and then selecting “Clear Cache.” Users may need to log back in to their Spotify account after clearing the cache.
If clearing the cache does not resolve the issue, users can try uninstalling and reinstalling the Spotify app. This can help resolve any issues with the app’s installation or configuration that may be causing the error code.
It’s important to note that while clearing the cache and reinstalling the app can resolve the Error Code 18, it may also delete any locally stored data, such as downloaded songs or playlists. Users should ensure that any important data is backed up before performing these steps.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, users can contact Spotify support for further assistance in resolving the Error Code 18.
