My Question or Issue

My app keeps crashing mid song every single time I play music. I have to close the app and re-launch again. It does it almost every time I switch playlist. It started happening a week ago for me.

Hey @Carla2915 


Is it an actual crash, or does it happen when the screen is locked?


Samsung introduced an agressive power saving option which is closing Spotify when the application is sent to the background or the screen display turned off. Check this thread for more info.


There is a battery saving option that you may need to turn off.


From your phone, can you go to Settings > Battery > tap the three-dot icon at the top > Battery optimisation > tap the drop-down arrow > All apps > Spotify > Don't optimize.

Hope it helps. 🙂
