I like using the Spotify app on my iPhone as a remote when I use Spotify playing from Desktop or iPad.
However, I've never been able to pause a song. If I do, it instantly loses the connection to the main device. If I try to reconnect it says "Spotify is not active on this device." Is there a way around this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I had the same problem, i'm usin android mobile phone and tablet, and windows10 notebook also.
Tried this workaround: A) my phone is connected to my hifi B) phone is on charging cable C) wlan always on, no stand-by [for power-saving, look at your phone-settings] D) Spotify has to be in front on screen and important E) screen always on, while charging, [look at phone-settings]. F) i choosed "spotify repeat all", so there spotify is allways playing and connected. And i tried it succesfully with downloaded playlists and albums [offline-mode].
I know it's a roundabout way, but it works.
