Re: Spotify Keeps Pausing Randomly


This issue went away a few years ago, but is now back. I have a new phone, but Android has updated etc. I followed the steps provided in the previous solution, but to no avail.

The silence Is deafening on this thread from Spotify.

Re: Spotify Keeps Pausing Randomly


if your on discord and you see this message it makes your spotify pause after 30 seconds of your mic transmitting then you've found the issue, i thought that if i turned up the sensitivity then it would help and i could listen to spotify, but that's not the case. In order to make your spotify stop pausing i had to completely restart discord. hopefully this might be some peoples issue with it.

Solution does not work. I'm not signed in anywhere but I did this anyway but it didn't work. Spotify just keeps on stopping music in the middle of a song just randomly and the notification bar would not be in notifications so I would have go to the app to start it again. Also Spotify is never online. I have my own data and am constantly connected to wifi but yet Spotify is always offline

Do you also notice any playlists or random songs being added to your
recently played tracks?? Digging into it I found that Spotify has had a lot
of underlying security issues that don’t prevent people from hijacking
accounts. Bottom line is that I haven’t seen their support community
address this and provide a solution yet. Glad my account was shared as part
of a family plan, or else I wouldn’t be paying for the software.

Hey folks,


If you're experiencing this issue, first please check @SpotifyStatus and/or the Ongoing Issues board to make sure there isn't a larger issue.


If it's not an ongoing issue, then we'd like to suggest a few things which seem to have worked for other users:


@musicrider27 suggested clicking on 'sign out everywhere' on your account overview page here and then logging back in.


@bombardino16 suggested updating your phone's software.


We would also like to suggest the following:

  • Reinstall the app
  • Restart your device
  • Restart your router
  • Try with different WiFi networks and 3G/4G.
  • Disable Battery and Power saving mode

If that still doesn't solve the issue for you, let us know and we'll look into it.


Thanks! Stay awesome 🙂
