I'm facing this issue since I chenged Huavei P9 to Samsung Galaxy 10.
I've tried all sollutions described here, but spotify randomly stops playing anyway. This occures more often when I'm listening something new, some new album. Sometimes when I wait a while, the music starts plaing again. But most often I'm applying a silly sollution:
Setting-> Applications-> Spotify Force Stop. Then I'm running Spotify and the music is playing till the next unexpected stop.
it's actually pretty gross that yoir answer to a simple problem like this is to have the user allow all permissions. contacts. photos. microphone. even though your ceo says they'll never be accessed without permission, its somewhat troubling that the issue of spotify playing after the is closed is to allow spotify to access your entire personal cell phone. thats like being sick and going to the doctor , only to have the doctor require you to give him access to your personal social life that has nothing to do with him getting you better.
I'm a premium user for years and always liked Spotify, but unfortunately I'm canceling my account and I'll migrate to another music platform.
I cannot search any music, it keeps freezing and takes an eternity to load search page. I cannot play any music in the Home page, it keeps pausing and blinking the music. This is not a joke: last time I tryed to listen a music, the fight with app took about 10 min to start the music. When it started, the music was pausing and freezing the app more then 6 times. I cannot access my library because it takes about 5min or more to load it. Well... I can't do anything, I'm paying it for nothing. Not even the config section is opening, last time I tried it took more then 4 min to open it. I'm not able to hear a single music, it can't be played. App is completely crashed and not functional. This is a shame.
