Infamous spotify pausing issue

Infamous spotify pausing issue

So I've been dealing with this issue for about 24 hours now.  I tried every suggestion on the community and web.  Uninstalled, deleted folders, reinstalled, logged out all sessions, changed my password, formatted my SD card, restored my phone to stock 4.2.2, upgraded my phone to lollipop, issue is still there.  


Last week, I had logged in on my PC, and was using my phone to control it.  cool feature.  Then a few days later, it just wouldn't recognize that I was logged in on the PC too.  This 'multiple people' logged in issue is similar to what causes the pausing, so I'm guessing it's something like that on spotify server side.


What I expected to happen

  1. 1.     songs should seamlessly play through playlist without stopping or pausing.


What actually happened

    1. 1.     I open a newly installed Spotify app on Android
    2. 2.     I log in with user/pass (not facebook)
    3. 3.     I play a playlist, it will not make it through 2, usually, 1 song finishes, second song fails to start.  then i skip, and click back, it'll play, but fail to complete playing the song before just stopping

Installed Spotify version, similar problem but different. Audio just goes away mid track but it acts like it's still working.

Seems to work right on my computer.  I'm back on the latest version of Spotify from the play store, nothing really helps.  It semes to play playlists that i've created better than random playlists or radio stations.  


I just created a free account using my facebook, it is doing the same thing, finished like the 3rd song, and switched to a new song, but just sits there at time zero.
