Pixel 2 XL (formerly HTC 10)
My Question or Issue
To begin with, here's what I've done to try and resolve the problem...
On my old phone, I wiped data and cache for Spotify, reinstalled spotify multiple times. The phone had some other problems so I upgraded to a Pixel 2. Even with a fresh phone, the problems persist. I did not restore anything from a backup of the previous phone. I only had the new phone for about a week before the issues started to occur.
All these issues tend to happen at the same time, so it seems to be related to some state of the app that doesn't always occur. It does happen often enough to be an absolute annoyance. I heard that Google Play Music is shutting down soon. If it wasn't I'd just switch, it's hardly worth paying for premium when issues like these happen all the time.
Another perhaps unrelated issue - sometimes when I dont' have data reception, Spotify will tell me I can't play a song offline even though I have it saved...
