Also on TMobile. Problems seem to only occur with Bluetooth connection. Nexus 6, Android 5.1

 

Is it time for Tidal?

I'm having the same issue. It's not a network issue since I'm having this happen in offline mode. 

 

Some of th ethings I did include:

1- Un-synch my playlist and re-download to my device. 

2- Remove individual track from playlist and re-add

3- Move track position in downloaded playlist

4- Scroll manually through track to force app to play at later point after skip area.

5- Delete all filles and app data from App Settings and then re-downloaded playlists

 

Options 1 through 4 did nothing to resolve issue in my case.

Option 5 fixed this for me. Most likely this was caused by a caching issue, where the track likely cached itself to your device while network connection was iffy. 

 

Hope this solution works for the rest of you.

I have had this issue for I don't know how long. When I upgraded to a iPhone 6, worked perfect with my iPhone 4s, it randomly starts with the skipping. Sometimes it works perfect and other times it's frustrating to hear the song skip 6 seconds in. I doubt it has anything to do with the phone since multiple devices have commented. It has to be their program. It's on an eternal skip song!
And yeah it sucks to pay for this service & not have it work 80% of the time.

I just got the premium version of spotify last night.  This is my first experience ever with spotify.  I am the director of a new dance academy and after much research decided that this would be the best way to get/play music for my classes.  All I have done so far is go down the list of top 100 most downloaded songs to see what I want to add.  Almost every song is skipping for a second, and I'm not even playing them all the way through!  It's driving me insane!!! From what I'm hearing you all say, this is going to be an issue no matter what, when, where I'm playing my music?  I realize that right now my first 3 months are almost free, but this is unexceptable in a proffesional setting and I cannot continue business this way.  

 

This is happening at my home in Bradenton FL on a windows 8 computer.  There should nothing wrong with my connection. Basically I'm realizing that I should probably cancel and find another way of getting music.  Does anyone have a suggestion of what I should try next?? Or is there hope of this problem going away?

This has been happening for me for about a month. This happens when I'm streaming... I'll just be playing a playlist, and it'll just starting playing one, and it seems like if the internet connection isn't strong or drops, when spotify reconnects successfully, then it'll just skip to the next song instead of trying to load the current song. This happened to one of the playlists I was listening to for about half of the songs! This is really annoying... I have a Galaxy S6 so no SD card for me.
