Hello, I have a premium plan in the US, a pixel 4A, and the local files are from itunes on a macbook pro 2020. Both are on the same account and wifi.
I have other local files that work perfectly fine on my computer and my phone with no static issues but I recently bought an album that was not available on spotify and imported it the same way I did the last one and while they play perfectly fine on my computer, they are nearly unlistenable on my phone. The songs are staticy and awful.
I've cleared the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and undownloaded and redownloaded the songs on both my computer and on my phone. It is not the speakers on my phone because everything else works perfectly fine, and it happens when I use headphones as well. It is also not the songs themselves, because they do not do this on my computer.
The last local file that I downloaded and have in a playlist was downloaded on april 14th of this year and it works perfectly, the new ones were downloaded just a few days ago on the 21st of may. Since then Spotify has gone through a seemingly major update, I have to wonder if that is part of the issue?
