My Question or Issue

Spotify keeps pausing 1-2 seconds after i press play.

It won't play a song for more than 1-2 second before pausing itself.

I have tried to sign out of all devices and reinstalling.

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? Sorry if thes may sound a bit repetitive but if that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app by following these steps.


I'd also recommend using the Remove Offline devices and performing a password reset from your Spotify account page 🙂

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

Restarting, removing offline devices and changing the password did not work.

I'm on Windows 10 Pro V. 1709 Build 16299.431 and Spotiamp

Hey @turbolego,


Sorry about that.


I see you're using a third party app, I'd recommend download and installing the official Spotify client here.


Thanks 🙂
