Could it be if you have synced / downloaded offline playlists and after the update it might have been mixed up or sort. If you'd clear the cache and then try again, if that would help. Log out & Log in...
I tried to log out and then log in again. Didn't do anything. I have no offline playlists so it should not have something to do with that. It should not be a cache problem, the problem is always there even with new music I have never listened to on my phone.
I just think it's a bug that the spotify team needs to fix.
I have the same problem on my HTC desire. The first song of a downloaded playlist usually plays fine, and on the next one the sounds stops around half way through...~10 seconds later it goes back to the main menu.
The beta-version of this app worked fine- so something must have changed on the official release.
I've emailed spotify, so we'll see what comes of of that.
Has anyone from Spotify commented on this issue? For me it is making the app unfit for purpose and my premium subscription a waste of money. The workaround with moving back and forth through songs until sound comes out is a hassle at my desk, difficult when I'm walking and impossible when I'm listening in the gym with the phone in my armband, so I've not been able to listen to music there. This means listening to Kiss, which is incredibly damaging to my mental health and decimates my IQ every time I'm exposed to it.
