Spotify has resolved issues that briefly caused the music streaming service to be unavailable to some users.

It's unclear how widespread the issues are for the service, which has about 100 million active users and 30 million songs. Several users took to social media to report the Friday afternoon outage. CNBC has reached out for more information on what caused the issue.
