[Android] Music Stops Playing after Several Tracks



The android application stops playing after several tracks.


To reproduce:

  • Seems to randomly occur on both premium and free playback.
  • It is suspected the issue on free playback may be when the application tries to load a commercial.



None: Restart music manually. 


Additional information:

None at present.


If you are having this issue, can you please post:

  1. What make and model of phone you are using. 
  2. Your android version.
  3. Your Spotify version.
  4. If you are using Free/Unlimited/Premium
  5. For Premium users: Does this happen in offline mode? 
  6. If you have any local files synced from your computer to your android device.

It seems completely random, sometimes its after 2 or 10 songs, I stream it for hours every day. This is driving me insane.

I just started using Spotify on my phone yesterday.  The stopping thing happened to me twice this morning on my way to work.  When it happened, music stopped and my entire currently playing list was empty.  I had to go find music again to start over.

This is a major issue for me because I use Spotify to listen to music through my car stereo and I can't mess with my phone to get the music to start playing again while i'm trying to drive. I spent ~$150 for an aux input so I could listen to music from my phone in my car and am very dissapointed that this app stops playing after a random number of songs (sometimes after a long time, sometimes after 1 or 2) forcing me to switch to the radio in my car if I want to listen to anything at all.

Spotify will randomly stop playing and displays the "no internet connection" message at the bottom of the screen, even over wifi in my home where the signal is uninterrupted.  Spotify will also randomly drop out audio while songs continue to play on the screen.
