Randomly stops playing 1 second before end of song

Randomly stops playing 1 second before end of song


Plan: Premium

OS: MacOS 12.2.1 (21D62)

Spotify for macOS (Apple Silicon)


My Question or Issue: 


Spotify sometimes randomly won't start playing the next song, but will actually "pause" 1 second before the song end, however it will still show as "playing". To change the song, I have to click "next" song.


Please assist.

Hey @galaxyx93,


Thanks for posting on the Community.


In this case, you can start off with a clean reinstall of the Spotify app on your computer to see if this makes a difference. You can see the steps to do it here.


On another note, did you notice if this happens on another device? You can ask for the mobile device relative or a friend to open your account and check 🙂

We'll be on the lookout for your replies.


Take care!

Thanks, will give a quick reinstall a try, if not, I'll continue with a clean reinstall and report back to you!
