Stockholm: Swedish streaming service Spotify went offline for an unknown reason for more than an hour on Tuesday, the company said, as millions of users worldwide reported they had been logged out and were unable to log back on.

"Something's not quite right, and we're looking into it. Thanks for your reports!" the company wrote on Twitter.

After about 90 minutes the company said service had been restored.

"Everything's looking much better now", it said, providing no explanation for the outage.

Millions of users had posted on Twitter about their problems connecting to the app.

Spotify did not respond immediately to AFP's request for a comment.

The company has more than 400 million active users, including 180 million paying subscribers.
