For the past month or so, spotify keeps pausing and skipping songs randomly without any logical pattern on my Samsung A5. The app will be closed, and phone screen locked, in my pocket, and the song will pause, then play, then skip a few, then pause again. I pay monthly for spotify and it's getting very frustrating that I can no longer listen to the music I have paid for. I'm not sure if it's related, but the Google voice command/recognition system would randomly pop up when spotify pauses. Since disabling Google that part seems to have stopped. However, spotify keeps pausing and skipping without reason. I have tried wiping all cached data already and that didn't help at all.
Any tips or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the reports!
Looking into this, it seems like everyone is having a slightly different experience. The root cause of these playback issues seem to be related to specific set ups, which is difficult to solve as a group.
It looks like a clean reinstall has solved this for most, and for some new headphones were the solution. If you haven't tried a reinstall, we'd recommend following the stepshere.
If you're still having the same trouble, we'd recommend creating anew thread. Someone will jump in to help shortly after.
