Spotify Error Code 111

Recently, there have been multiple complaints from users all over the globe that while trying to use the widely popular music app Spotify, they have encountered the following 111 Error Code on their respective devices. 

And since you are already here reading the following article, I believe that you too have encountered the same problem and want a fix for it at the earliest. 

Having said that, the primary reason for such an error to occur may be due to two main reasons. Either there is a network or connectivity issue preventing your device from retrieving data from the company server, or issues on the server end itself. 

Whatever may be the case, the troubleshooting fixes to them are pretty much the same and generally applicable for all such similar issues.

However, it is important to note here that, since most often the error is caused due to issues at the server end or network issues. It is best that you wait a few hours till the error gets fixed at the server or ISP end itself.

If the error is prevalent in a particular region or multiple users have reported the same error message at the same time. Then, it is best to just leave it that way to be solved by the Spotify developer team themselves. 

But, if you still want to try out some general fixes as had mentioned above. You may want to try the following fixes as mentioned below:

How To Fix Spotify Error Code 111?

Fix 1: Check if other users are facing the same error

To check and be sure of whether the problem is happening only to you or there are others too facing the same issue, you can refer to the following website Downdetector

Here, you can see and check whether other users from the same region or elsewhere around the globe have been facing the same error as you at their respective devices. 

If not, then there is a chance that the problem or cause of the error may be local and just happening in your case. 

Fix 2: Clear up Browser Cache 

There may be times when your browser cache may be the one responsible for such an error to occur. 

If so, then the best way to fix it would be to clear up the browser cache and clear up unnecessary data and cookies being saved by your browser.

Here, depending upon what type of browser you are using, the way to delete the cache and cookies data may be different. Hence, it would be a good idea to just search up the steps on the internet and see if doing so helps solve the issue.

Fix 3: Clear up App Cache

If you are streaming songs over the Spotify App and see the following error message flash on your screen. Then, similar to what you had done earlier in the step above. Here too, you can try clearing up the Spotify App cache and see if doing so helps solve the issue.

To clear up your App cache, you can follow the steps as shown below:

  • From the list of apps shown tap and open on the Spotify app. 
  • Then, under the App page click on the Storage & cache option.
  • Here, tap on the Clear cache or the Clear storage option and see if doing so helps solve the issue. 

Fix 4: Uninstall and Reinstall the App

If none of the other fixes as shown above work for you. Then, you can try uninstalling the app completely from your device and reinstall it back onto the device. 

Doing so helps solve any temporary glitches or bugs which may have occurred while using the app all this while.
