My Question or Issue

 How do I listen to a podcast episode that I've already listened to? I often fall asleep listening to a podcast, but I still want to listen to the full episode awake. When I try to play the episode, I get about a half second of the end, and then it plays the next one.

 

I tried searching for this issue but did not find it. Apologies if it's already solved somewhere.

Hey @UtrechtL0ve and @LadySadieV,

 

Thanks for raising this with us - we'll be happy to help you out here :)

 

We tried to reproduce this issue on our end using an Android device, but everything seems to be working OK.

 

Just to confirm, are you seeing the played podcast like this (with the green bar filled):

I did a clean reinstall, and it's still the same. It looks exactly like your screen shot. When you click on one where it's completely at the end, there's no option to replay it. You click in it, it starts for about half a second, then skips to the next episode, and will keep skipping episodes until it comes to one that hasn't been played.

I have the exact same problem. 20 or 30 podcasts stuck at 1 to 7 minutes remaining but nothing plays.

Hey @Stinky_Jim.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this, and apologies for the delay!

 

It seems that you're using an outdated version of the Spotify app (the latest for Android is 8.4.83). Could you make sure it's updated and see if the issue persists?

 

If that doesn't work, could you possibly send us a screenshot showing us what you mean by the podcasts being stuck at 1 to 7 minutes remaining? 

 

We'll be looking out for your reply in case you need any more help from us :)

Please look at th screenshot at the start of this thread. I tweeted spotifycares, and they had to reset my offline cache, whatever that means. That has fixed my issue for now. As a result, I had to download my 3000 songs again for the thirst time this week.

 

Also, please get rid of the recaptcha for these posts. I usually have to click through 3 or 4 screens every time. So annoying.

Cannot replay on desktop, cannot replay on Android. Quite annoying!

Hey @Stinky_Jim,

 

Glad you were able to get this resolved with the help of our @SpotifyCares team!

 

@xeracon - thanks for letting us know and for providing that info.

 

Could you let us know the steps to reproduce on Desktop/Android for trying to replay the podcast episode within the app? We'll try them on our end.

 

Would you also mind trying this on another (Free) account on both devices and seeing if the issue persists?

 

We'll be looking out for your reply!
