Suddenly stops playing

Suddenly stops playing







Samsung Galaxy S8.

Operating System

Android: whatever the latest is.

Spotify: latest update.

My Question or Issue:

Whenever I close my phone or use another app Spotify stops playing after a few songs. I keep getting an error saying I have to allow spotify to play in the backround, I've had spotify for years I check that immediately. (Playtime example: 14:24 - 14:47)

There is no sleep timer on, spotify is allowed in the background, and I've got nice and stable Internet.

I've re installed several times, still the same issue.

Hey @DatSpecialSome1,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


Just to confirm, do you still experience this after a thorough reinstall of the Spotify app and restarting your phone? Asking since what I'm suggesting is more effective than a "simple" reinstall.


As a heads-up, it'd also be great to double-check you're not using any task-killer or batter-saver app/settings by the time you try using Spotify again.


Keep us posted. We'll look out for your reply and be here if we can help any further!
