Well yea, the title says it all. When I play a song (headphones always plugged) and my phone goes turns the screen of, spotily stops streaming. (well not instantly, but after a while) it's not an internet problem, promise!

 

PS:/ Will android get the "Extreme quality" feature?

Inside of the Power Saving setting, you can Turn On Background Data. This let's you have many of the Power Saving benifits but keep streaming.

I'm having the same issue..... I offline all my playlist, so it's not a connection issue. But as soon as my phone's screen goes dark the music stops playing. If I set my settings to allow the screen to always stay on it works fine but that's a MAJOR drain the battery. Any tips out there??? I'm using HTC EVO Design.

Hi. Install the preview release - I suggested this to someone with the same issue yesterday and it sounds like it solved it. It also allows extreme quality.

Get it from the Previews link at the bottom of this page

So I've been having the same problem for months now. It has been very frustrating to use spotify in my car while driving because the music would stop playing a couple of minutes after the screen turned off. I had tried searching around online for other people having the same problem and I finally came across this post.

 

Almost as soon as I did, a thought popped into my head. I realized that I have an auto-end list that kills certain programs if they are running after two minutes of my screen turning off. Low and behold, spotify had made it on that list. I turned it off yesterday and spotify has not once stopped playing. It is working fine now.

 

I don't know if everyone else having this problem will fall into the same boat, but I would suggest to anyone coming across this post that has the same problem to check any apps you have running that kill tasks and make sure that spotify is not included in that list.

I was two seconds away from cancelling my subscripiton, glad I didn't because that solved my problem!

 

Thank you jeredleisey! :)

How do you find that list?

I guess it is an external app which manages these tasks like "Advanced Task Killer".

I have been having this exact same problem ever since I got a new phone (Samsung galaxy s6), the app worked perfectly on my s5. I feel as if the solution is just out of my reach, I've spent so much time scouring my apps trying to find the "task killing" app or anything else that may contribute to the "auto-off" but I've found nothing. This is very frustraiting, please help!!

I never actually found out what caused it! It uninstalled and reinstalled
the app and as far as I remember that fixed the problem. I never got to the
bottom of why it happened.
