Device

Android Phone and WIndows 10 Laptop

Operating System

Android 10  Kirin Processor 8.0 GB RAM 160GB storage

Windows 10 1909 16GB RAM, SSD disk

 

My Question or Issue:

Streaming Spotify, Wired and Wireless, from either the Android Phone or Windows Laptop (or both) music pauses, drops out and then continues.

Random times of the day although evenings seem worse.

Wifi fine : 0% interference, Signal Strength -52dBm Link Speed 200Mbps

One speaker wired into Wifi router, and has the same issue.

Another interesting oddity

 

Playing music via Spotify, from my Android phone, the music is "Downloaded"

I rebooted both the Laptop and Android phone and the music keeps playing (to Wireless speakers)

Very spooky, so even if the music is "downloaded" to you always play come sort of cached stream from Spotify's servers ?

That seems inefficient, I would rather stream locally unless I misunderstand ?
