Slow connection between devices

Slow connection between devices



I work on an iMac (High Sierra), and I also have a laptop running El Capitan. This laptop is connected to my speakers a few steps from my desk, so I open Spotify on both computers so they link and I can control it from my iMac.
The problem is that the connection is too slow between devices. I hit next and the song changes like 30 or 60 seconds later... or I get a phone call and I can not just pause the music from my iMac, I mean, it pauses... eventually.

My internet connection is around 30mbps each way.


Any solutions for a smooth link between my 2 computers?

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.

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!
