Huge lags with Android app

Huge lags with Android app



Since a few updates (especially since the redesign of the library, at least 2 months), I have had very big problems with slowdowns on the Android application for no reason.

Any playlist, library category, search result,... takes at least 20/30 seconds to display and can even load without ever stopping. I also have big problems in order to start and stop a music with a latency of several tens of seconds between the moment I press the screen and the action taking place.


I have been a big user of Spotify for many years and this is the first time I have had such problems. Is there a way to solve these problems?


My Android device is a Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) with Android 9, not the latest smartphone but no application has such slowdowns, including other streaming applications. This happens regardless of the connection. I also use the Windows version of Spotify and I don't have this kind of problem.

The problem seems to be solved after passing through the twitter account of the spotify support.
