Spotify Problems

Casual Listener
I can pick a song, it begins to play. I shut the screen off on my Galaxy Note 5 and the music will continue to play for 15 or so seconds, then cut off. I also commonly do not have access to any music other then music I've downloaded. A message appears 'song not available ' why? For every song? I pay to be a premium customer, i shouldn't even have to come here and ask to find help and waste my time, i should be able to get direct support from Spotify. I will be leaving as soon as i find another music provider I am comfortable with. Thanks for the nothing i pay for, Spotify.

Samsung introduced an agressive power saving option which is closing Spotify when the application is sent to the background or the screen display turned off.

 

Check this thread:

There is a battery saving option that you need to turn off. More info here:

Hey, here's a fuller list of settings which can cause music to stop, particularly when streaming from spotify.

 

  • Wifi/More/keep wifi on during sleep - set to always
  • Battery - Power saving modes off
  • Battery/App power saving/details - make sure Spotify is not listed. If it is, select and disable
