hi, i'm had this issue for quite some time now. I'm using spotify for family. This happened on my Samsung Note 5, Samsung S8, and my brother Google pixel. Not sure whether this happened on our pc / laptop because we dont use spotify too often there.
the song is not paused, the minute counter stops, i can't play-pause it to resolve the problem. Sometime skipping to the next song and go back to the previous song will do the trick but it is too much of a hassle.
I try clearing memory, cache, reinstall, etc but the problem persist.
can anyone help, bc this is getting really annoying now.
