My Question or Issue

So recently my Spotify has started to pause songs randomly while I am playing games, however while I am outside of the game it seems perfectly fine. It's only started happening in the last couple of days and the pausing interval is random.. It could be straight after I play again or 10 minutes after, it's just random.
I should also mention that I have changed my facebook password, logged everyone out of facebook, and also logged everyone out of my spotify aswell, and this has not worked either.
Not getting an error code, it's exactly as if I had paused the song myself, however it's Spotify itself that is pausing the song.

To address Spotify randomly pausing songs while you play games on your Windows 10 PC, start by ensuring both Spotify and your operating system are updated. Disable hardware acceleration in Spotify's settings, close unnecessary background apps, and check power settings to optimize system performance. Temporarily disable any conflicting software or antivirus programs, and if the issue persists, consider reinstalling Spotify. If none of these steps resolve the problem, contacting Spotify support for personalized assistance may be necessary to investigate potential account or device-specific issues.
