Windows 11 Pro (22H2 - 22622.575) - 1.1.95.893.g6cf4d40c

 

Regardless of the podcast, as one episode finishes, the next will not play until the app is restarted (all platforms)

 

Deleting and re-installing app makes no difference.

Samsung Galaxy 20, Android 13, latest patch applied.

Spotify Android version 8.7.72.546

 

Most podcasts don't play when queued. Some show an error when adding to queue that says "Cannot Queue This Content"

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Android 10 latest patch applied.
  • Spotify Android version 88.7.72.546

Some podcasts don't play, but particularly, not one episode of The Jordan B. Peterson podcast is loading. Playback is stuck at 0:00

It's been going on for over a week now, just out of the blue.

Another one is the Weird Darkness podcast. Same problem. @OscarDC

Hey @geeedubya@RPM2182 and @Gypsydangerconsort!

 

Could you try  a different network connection / cellular data to see if the issue would persist? It's worth logging in to a different account, if possible (a friend's or a relative's would do) to check if you'd be able to play the podcasts there.

 

Keep us posted. Cheers!

Just did a clean uninstall. Podcasrs still aren't playing. Even on the web player

Hey @Gypsydangerconsort,

 

We appreciate the info! Could you also try what @Yordan has suggested to see if it makes any difference?
Creating a new account for testing purposes may be a good alternative here as well.

@geeedubya @RPM2182 
Could you let us know how this looks on your ends?

We'll be on the lookout for any new responses 🙂
Thanks!
