2 MacBook Pros
My Question or Issue
If I have Spotify running on both my work and personal MacBook Pro's, I'm unable to play a song on either for more than a brief snippet. Whenever I click the play icon, I get about a half-second of audio, and then the track stops. If I shut down the application running on the other laptop, or put it in "disconnected" mode, then songs play as expected. This suggests there's some kind of communication between the two, or the Spotify server is getting confused about which app is "active".
Note that I am not trying to stream simultaneously -- I understand that if I try to stream a song through one device while another is already playing, then the first device will stop. I'm referring to streaming/playing a song while the other device is simply running the Spotify app.
Is this expected? It's very annoying to have to shut down Spotify whenever I switch laptops (which I do regularly)
