Hi @Petya, I've tried what you suggested plus disabling battery saver/optimization and it still does not work. I pay for a premium account and use it in my classes, so this is definitely not an acceptable issue. Do you know of a better solution?
I recently had a similar issue where whenever I'd start my playlist, it would show a song, then after one second, skip to the next until an ad comes. Once the ad is over, it would play a song, then stop it at 9 seconds, and I couldn't play it anymore. I've tried doing the steps two times, and it has done the same thing multiple times.
Thanks for posting here and confirming the troubleshooting steps you've tried.
Do you mind letting us know which version of the Spotify app is currently installed on your device? Also, make sure you check if this occurs across multiple devices or only on a single one.
Another thing worth trying is if you still experience this when using a different Internet connection. If it works with another connection, it's best to contact the service provider of the original network for more information.
Keep us posted! We'll look out for your reply.
