Description of the issue
Since a few days it is not possible to listen to music on Spotify anymore. This seems due to a change in Spotify, not in Brave. The page loads normally, but if you try to listen to a song, the following message pops up:
An error occurred
Spotify no longer supports this version of Chrome. Please update your browser for uninterrupted listening.
Might have something to do with Widevine. There are failed (HTTP 400) requests that hint to it:
These errors are not there in Chrome - and playing music still works there too.
I’m using a Spotify premium account (in case it makes a difference on how they protect their content).
There are other people with the same recent error. No solution yet. Might be related:
