Are you listening over bluetooth? Does this still happen if you use wired earphones?

I hate auto haptic, I have had it turned off since I had the phone.

I listen to spotify through attaching a 3.5mm cable into the headphone jack, and attaching the other end into my car's stereo system. The idea then is to put a playlist on shuffle, and let it do its thing. Instead, it stutters, is unresponsive in changing songs, and generally awful.

 

I was sitting in a McD's car park about 20 minutes ago with some mates and it did it when we were listening to music then.

So frustrating!

Are there any alternative means of non-community based support that spotify provides?

I have been searching for a fix for this for at least two or three weeks now and have found nothing, and this problem doesn't seem to be one I alone am faced with.

Sure, you can get in touch direct with spotify support using the online contact form. If you get an automated response directing you back to the community or to the help pages, make sure to reply to it directly to speed things along.

Cheers, will get on it tomorrow.

 

Anyone found any solutions/have any ideas for debugging the problem?

Ignore me. It seems to be an Android issue.

Yes im pretty sure the problem was with my phone (lack of memory) as i noticed it started to lag qith other apps too. I got a new phone and the playback has been seamless. Spotify wasnt the problem.

I'm using cyanogenmode and it seems that changing the CPU governor has solved the problem. Brief instructions:

 

Enable developer options:

http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Doc:_developer_options

 

Then:

The go to Settings -> performance -> processor

 

Change the CPU governor to "ondemand"

 

I eventually got the information from the CM forums. I have closed the tab so no link.
