Spotify users reported problems after the app this morning and claimed it was hit by some sort of outage which has left them unable to search for songs.
The website Down Detector has confirmed the outage and said it had received hundreds of reports about problems with the music app.
It said problems were encountered by Spotify users living in the UK and across Europe.
One user wrote: ‘Search function not working… won’t find any artist or any song when searched.’
Spotify’s official Twitter account has not yet announced whether it’s been hit by an outage or whether some other problem is responsible for the reports.

Reports started coming at about 10.30 am this morning and peaked at just after 11 am.
On Twitter, dozens of people shared stories of their search bar woe.
One person wrote to Spotify and said: ‘I cannot search for anything (not even the Artist I’m currently listening to)? Is there any way to fix this? Is this a bug?’
Another wrote: ‘Search is rather broken in Spotify.’
