My Question or Issue

Spotify frequently pauses what is playing at random. When I hit play, it has disconnected from the device. I have reinstalled the app, cleared the cache, checked that battery optimization for Spotify is off, and even did a hard reset on the phone. This is when connected via Chromecast Audio or Google Nest Home Mini speaker.

 

The Spotify app is so buggy for Android I'm considering switching to a different music service.

Same here. It pauses randomly, disconnects and desynchronizes, remote volume control doesn't work 9/10 times. Terrible, terrible integration. Netflix and Youtube on Chromecast work PERFECTLY, so it's not that hard to do.

same this has been happening for the last 3 days. It'll play a single song, then pause and disconnect. Unsure how to debug here, but seems like something on the chrome <> Spotify end?
