[Win 10] Sporadic pausing of music in desktop client.


[Win 10] Sporadic pausing of music in desktop client.

Casual Listener

Over the past week audio has started to pause itself for no apparently reason. 
It happens when Spotify is the only application running and while other apps are running (example gaming). During gaming, when it pauses, it will sometime randomly resume itself after a long period of time.

Interestingly enough, this has also started to happen on my iPhone 7 as well while playing via bluetooth.

The only configuration that has changed on Win 10 / iPhone 7 is the system updates and app updates.


Troubleshooting attemps:

  • I've checked the network and this does not seem to be an issue
  • Happens even with synced tracks on the iPhone
    I've signed out everywhere and then signed in ONLY on the Win 10 machine and the issue persists sporaticly.


  • Hit play.

Anyone else running into issues like this recently?
