Sadly the issue is not resolved, atleast not for me. It happens a lot less frequent but Spotify still stops randomly. At the moment the frequency is between 40 minutes and 1 hour approximately.
Are there any suggestions on how to fix this issue? I mean other than 'restart the app/device'. Done that several times already.

Not sure I also need to post this in the ongoing issues forum.

Hi,

 

I had  still this problem on my LG G4 with Android 6.0

Additionally, is may  continues to play after BT disconnects  😉

And sometimes, it won't load the controls on my Wear-Smartwatch (missing controls also on the G4).

I often launch Spotify using Play-Button on my BT head set and using  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cp2.start.and.play.music.player

I have the same problem, did all the suggestions, nothing helps. Have a premium spotify account, a Samsung Galaxy S6 phone and a Samsung Tab E fully updated, both with the same problem. Sometimes the music just stops, sometimes the app just closes. Please advise

Something I noticed and someone posted in another thread is to keep the app "in focus". As long as Spotify is on the screen the music will continue to play but if you open another app or click to get to the homescreen the app will close itself at soms point.

I know this is not a permanent solution but for now it helps.
Solution!

I've found a solution that works with my phone, Galaxy S6

 

This weekend I found out that not only Spotify stops after playing some 5 numbers, but also my other musicplayers. Even when I play music with Firefox it stops after a few songs. So a new search on the internet to solve this problem began.

 

I've found that my S6 automatically saves batterylife and that that might be the problem. Go to your settings, battery, App optimalisation, Details. Go to Spotify or other musicplayers and turn of App optimalisation.

I found that this solved an issue for many of my other apps as well! Thank you!
