A workaround is to use the apt version of spotify instead of the snap version.

First remove the snap version. Open a terminal and enter the command

sudo snap remove spotify

The next part of this answer is based on the official instructions.

Now add the public key.

curl -sS | sudo apt-key add - 

Now add the repository.

echo "deb stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list

Update the software index.

sudo apt update

Install spotify.

sudo apt install spotify-client

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
