Spotify Radio on Android: endless mode gone, stops after fixed playlist.

Status: Closed

Device:

all Android devices 

Operating System Version:

Android 6.0.1 

Spotify Version:

4.4.0.1008 

Description:

Starting a radio on the Spotify Android app used to start an endless mode playing different songs everytime the radio was started anew. Now starting a radio creates a fixed playlist and then plays the songs in the playlist and stops. Redoing the same step creates exactly the same playlist with the same songs.

This used to be a crucial feature for me as I don't want to have to interact with Spotify to create a constant stream of music.

 

To reproduce:

  1. (On Android) Go to Menu -> Radio
  2. Scroll down and select e.g. "Rock" from the Genre stations
  3. Observe that Spotify creates a fixed playlist which is started when clicking on "Play Radio"
  4. Skip to the last song of the playlist and then skip to close to the end of that song.
  5. After the song ends, playback stops.

Workaround:

Hi @tlangner!

 

Thanks for bringing this up and welcome to the Community.

 

This sounds a bit odd. Best thing to try now is a reinstall, so just follow the steps here and see if it helps.
