Just noticed this issue today. Pause for some amount of time (seems to be less than 15 minutes for me but I'm not sure), try to press play, typically while using another application, and it won't play. When I switch back to Spotify, the blue "Can't play the current song" notification appears until I restart Spotify.

 

I am on a MacBook Pro 2019, 13".

macOS 10.15.3 (Catalina)

Spotify 1.1.27.472.gf6574b97

Bluetooth Headphones: Mpow Flame.

 

If it's relevant, I typically try to use the Mac Touch Bar to play/pause Spotify.

currently using 1.1.28.721.g5b5ee660, i still have to quit Spotify every time i lock my MacBook Pro, to be able to listen to music on my BT headset. every other sound goes through just fine, i can switch to internal speakers, which work fine, but BT fails from that point.

 

MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

I updated my Mac Spotify recently, and now have 1.1.28.721.g5b5ee660.

I'm still seeing the same problem where Spotify stops being able to play songs.

I am using a Bluetooth audio amplifier connected to a pair of speakers.

After being idle all night long, I tried to play a playlist, but it failed with the blue error message across the top.

I disconnected the BT amp from the Mac, and the music started playing through the tinny little speakers on the Mac.

I reconnected to BT, and things are playing fine now through the BT amp.

Same issue here, been happening for months. Doesn't seem like Spotify cares even the slightest bit.

Has been happening to me for weeks whenever I try to resume Spotify after reconnecting my BT headset. This is definitely regression as I've been using Spotify like this on a daily basis for over a year.

I'm at least glad that the support agent was wrong when he said it was a new issue.

Spotify version 1.1.29.592.gf0779179

 

Has happened for quite some time. Through contact with the support, I've tried clean installs and several accounts, but as expected none of that helped.
