[Mac] Song skips forward when switching source


[Mac] Song skips forward when switching source


Plan: Premium

Country: USA

Device: Macbook Pro late 2015


Hello ! I have noticed quite a few times now that when I switch the playing source of Spotify from either the app on my iPhone 8 or the Chrome web player to my macOS Spotify app, the song will skip forward. For example, my friend will send me a link to a song that will open in the Chrome web player, I'll be maybe 6 or 7 seconds in and switch it to the application and it'll continue playing at 52 seconds in. Has this happened to anyone else?

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.


Also make sure you have installed macOS Mojave 10.14.6 :)

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!
