Brief description of the issue: Every now and then an ad that says "you can skip this ad after 5 seconds" comes along, and... won't play. Nor can I skip it, or choose a song. In fact, often it completely crashes my spotify client and I have to force close it. It's only happening on these specific ads, any other ads are all fine, but these 'wait 5 secs' ads are absolutely infuriating, because I have to close Spotify and reopen it in order to start playing music again. And, if it's the very first ad I come across it means doing it sometimes after just one song depending on when the first ad shows up (which is sometimes after the very first song I play).
Steps to reproduce the issue:
What steps you’ve tried already: I have tried updating my Spotify client (it says there are no updates), deleting and redownloading my client, and the old 'turn it off and on again' by closing and reopening it. This has been going on for months but since it used to happen maybe 1/2 times a day and is now happening basically once an hour, I would really appreciate a fix.
