Moto Z Play
My Question or Issue
For the past couple of months or so (6-11 months) I've been having this absurd issue that only happens when I connect Spotify via Bluetooth to my Prius's audio system. Whatever I'm playing, whether it's downloaded or streamed, inexplicably stutters for a split second and then audio doesn't come out while the track continues to "play." The phone shows that the Bluetooth is connected to the car and Spotify continues to play, but nothing comes out. Sometimes, if I forget the pairing on the car or the phone, I can get it to work, but it will always replicate the same bug every time I restart my car.
Here's some of the troubleshooting I've tried, to no avail:
This was not a problem with the phone, Spotify, or the car until recently. I had issues getting the song display to work properly (I don't think it ever did update the songs reliably) but I didn't make much of it because I didn't really care, so long as the audio worked. Now that this is happening, I'm really frustrated, because 80% of the reason I even pay for a subscription is to listen to Spotify on my commute.
