Spotify podcast playback issues with silences and pauses

Spotify podcast playback issues with silences and pauses





MacBook Air M1

Operating System

iOS Ventura


If happens to me while listening to podcasts on Spotify for Mac (not on iPhone), that when there's a silence such as between words and sentences the audio cuts off and it resume at the middle of the word. Most commonly when some starts speaking. It's like if the sound muted and turned on in the middle of the word. Like skipping the first couple of syllables when the podcasters start talking. With Music there's no issue, playback is perfect. Also on iPhone I don't get this problem
