[Android] Spotify won´t play more than one song or skips back to middle of it

My Question or Issue

Since this morning my phone won´t play more than one song. After it finishes playing a song, it rewinds back a few minutes, to about a minute and a half into the song, after which it doesn´t play anymore. This happens no matter how strong or weak my connection is and whether I´ve downloaded the song or not. 


It doesn´t pause the songs, and if I pause it and then unpause it, it continues to look as if it´s playing but does so without sound.


If I skip the song, it plays the next one, but the same problem occurs when the song ends. My laptop works just fine, it´s just my phone.


Edit: I´ve performed a clean reinstall, which worked, but only for a little while, The problem is now back.

Edit 2: somehow, a day or so after making the above edit, the problem was fixed. I did nothing to fix it, Spotify was just working normally out of nowhere again. I decided to wait a few days to bring the news to see if it stayed the same, and it did. I will leave this question open as I don´t think everyone has had the same thing happen to them, but I wanted to inform you all regardless. Hopefully, I´m doing it the right way, haha. Good luck to anyone with the same issue!

I´ve got a Samsung Android Galaxy A5 (2016), version 7.0. I am using the Spotify version .5.57.1164. t happens on every network, including none, and both with Bluetooth and without. The problem disappeared for a little while after a clean reinstall but is now back.

Thanks for trying to help 🙂
