Re: "Can't play current track" after pausing

Started for me, with exact same symptoms about 2 weeks ago. Using the same headphones (SONY XM3) for more than year now and don't think it has anything to do with the bluetooth connection. 

Symptom does not replicate on phone / CarPlay.

 

This is becoming very frustrating. Paying quite a lot for a family /premium subscription, don't see why I should restart the application  every time I need to pause the music!

I've realized that this happens mostly if I'm listening with any Bluetooth audio.
If I'm with wireless headphones, airpods etc, pause the music OR start playing a youtube video/whatsapp audio, I go back to spotify and I can't listen to anything anymore, I always have to restart it. It's a pain.

I solved using right mouse button on the spotify icon on the dock (right mouse, pause, right mouse, play).
If using this spotify resumes always paused music.
Let me know if this works also for you (macbook pro early 2015)

Same problem here on Mac OS 10.15.4 (and before) using Sony WH-1000MX3 headphones.

same here, using MacBook 2014mid 10.14.5 and Spotify version 1.1.31.703.g256add22.
I tried using bose QC-35 and airpods 2, the symptom stays still. It is pretty annoying.Lol... Hope they can find what is going on there soon

Yes, the same happens to me, I'm using Bluetooth Sony WH-1000XM3 and I pause, to answer a call or to see another media, I received that message and I need to restart the app.

Is there any answer to that? It's happening a long time, maybe I didn't search enough

No, that bug is there for a year, maybe even more 😞

Yeah this is a pretty new thread about it, i've seen older ones about the same problem. hopefully the more people we get to contribute maybe Spotify will notice. I think just using the web app used to fix this problem but the desktop app is so much better so i would prefer if they fixed it or someone found a way to get it to work.
