I have a brand new Redmi Note 4G but have a weird issue where the Spotify app pauses after 3-5 seconds once the screen goes to sleep, it works fine when the phone is unlocked. Once paused it'll take a few seconds then it'll play again but only for 3-5 seconds!
If I unlock the phone once again all works perfectly.
I have downloaded google music and this does not exhibit the issue, i.ew. it works perfectly.
I can confim that both apps permissions are set identically and I have also tried changing varios app settings to ensure Spotify is always 'alive', but still no go.
Please help, if I am unable to use Spotify reliably then I will have to switch to Google Music once the free trial expires as I can't justify having 2 sreaming subscriptions, I'd prefer to continue with Spotify as I prefer the UI!
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the end I have simply done a factory reset of my phone, and all is well.
I did try your clean install but that didn't work either so not sure what was happening but everything appears to be funcitonaing correctly now.
