Hi there,
Welcome at the Spotify Community!

 

Do you use any proxy with Spotify? It might be your proxy provider which doesn't "like" Spotify, the same for VPN connections.

Have you already to tried to logout and login afterwards? Sometimes something simple as this already fixes the problem.

 

You may also try to fix it by reinstalling Spotify. To do that, please follow the steps in the link below:

Hi

 

First:

Allow me to apologize for the spelling and odd grammer of my comment.

I was trying to type on an older android device with a tiny keyboard, I failed miserably to get the correct message sent, my bad, sorry.

 

 

 

Now.

Second:

Yes, I have tried every combination of Install / Uninstall / Reinstall...every combination of Login...every configuration of Proxy Settings...every combination of Download and Stream Quality.

In doing that I made several discoveries.

1) None of those things worked (although every reinstall caused a temporary improvement).

2) The problem is NOT, repeat, NOT, Local (a full and complete WiFi test of every corner of my home established that my WIFI signal is probably being recieved by people on the ISS ~ 205 miles in space).

3) None of the things that were suggested as a "Fix" were within the normal parameters of what should be expected from an End User (read as: Why should I reconfigure virtually the entire Internet just to get an oddball Streaming Music site to work correctly?).

4) This problem started within the last couple of weeks

5) I would be willing to bet that the problem is related to Buffering.

 

 

OK...the ball is in your court.

Hit away.

Could you provide a little more detail about the device you are using? Android version etc?

I'm also going to pop this over into the Android section since it isn't a desktop issue.
