Repeat one functionality disables itself after I change the song. It works fine for one song, but does not persist for the next song. For example, when I turn it on while listening to song X, song X keeps repeating, which is fine. But then, if I switch to song Y (either through forward, rewind, or select through playlist), repeat one does not apply to song Y, and I have to enable it again to get it working for song Y.
The issue seems specific to Android, as repeat one works fine on my Spotify Desktop.
What type of account do you have?
Did you manually install an older version before installing the latest version from the Play Store?
My mobile Spotify version

Sorry for the late reply.
I am not the developer who added it into the mobile app, but this behavior is intended.
Let's say you are playing a song from a playlist and you want to listen to it over and over again.
You then open the now playing view and tap on repeat until it goes to repeat one.
Since you want to keep listening to that song you close out of the Spotify app and carry on whatever else you are doing.
If you then decide to play another song or continue on with the playlist, the repeat one option is turned off.
I think this is intended because usually you don't just want Spotify to repeat one every song you tap on.
If it so happens that you want a certain song on repeat one, then you would just go to the now playing screen and turn repeat one on.
It would be a hassle to leave repeat one on because when you want to play a different song or continue playing the rest of the playlist, you would have to go to the now playing screen EVERY SINGLE TIME and turn off repeat one so you can continue listening without the app repeating the next song that you chose, over and over again.
The desktop app keeps the repeat one on because the button is always in view and easy to turn on and off. It's not so easy in the mobile apps.
Hopefully my thoughts are helpfult.
