Albums only display tracks up to 500, seeking is extremely slow

Country Germany

 

Device OnePlus 6, Lenovo tab4 8 plus

Operating System Android 9 & 8

 

Besides of listening to music I also do enjoy listening to audio books on Spotify like the one below.

The audio book has 535 tracks, each around 2 minutes. Seeking between tracks will take from 30 seconds per track (OnePlus device) to a couple of minutes (Lenovo tablet device). Even pausing and resuming has a significant delay. Displaying the whole audiobook is 3 minutes at least and only the first 500 tracks are displayed. When I want to resume at track #515 for example seeking from the last selectable track (#500) to track #515 is a job of half an hour. I am pretty sure that this is neither a device problem not a bandwidth problem because it persists on all of my Android devices and the album itself is already completely downloaded for offline use.

 

This bug is really annoying.

Nope. This has nothing to do with Autoplay. Read my initial post. There's everything inside.

Oh, sorry my bad @CDrewing! I included the wrong link.

 

I meant to direct you to this Ongoing issue

 

It's about not being able to open albums and audio books loading slowly or not loading at all.

 

Hope this helps. We'll be here if you have any other questions.
