Recently I've been listening to a lot of audiobooks on my phone by downloading the local files from my computer. Unfortunately today I tried to jump back into the middle of a book and the app won't let me on iPhone or android. I can listen to the books from the beginning, but I can no longer jump to the middle of the book. This is a big problem obviously because I use Spotify for all of my music. I can skip to the middle of the book on my computer and on other playlists that don't have local files, but I can't skip to the middle of local files anymore. I do have premium.
Solved! Go to Solution.
A little update on the topic:
The newest version of the app is the cause of the issue.
While trying to solve this with SpotifyCares I was able to install an older version of the Spotify app (184.108.40.2069), where the timeline navigation works like a charm.
