Spotify won't resume after pause with bluetooth headphones

I'm unable to resume after i pause the music for a few minutes with my headphones over bluetooth.

Hey all,


We've received your reports that the music won't resume after you pause it when listening with Bluetooth headphones. We'd like to look into this but to do this we need the following:


  • Device
  • OS version
  • Spotify version

Let us know what you can find. Looking forward to your reply.

Have this exact same issue since October 2019 on MacOS Catalina. Currently on 10.15.3 and occurs whenever I leave my music paused for more than a few minutes with my Sony XM3 bluetooth headphones connected.
Same issue here. It's pretty annoying. Mac 2017(Four Thunderbolt), MacOs 10.15.3

Same issue here, totally annoying and it's been going on for months!!

MacBook Pro early 2015, Catalina 10.15.3 (19D76), Spotify

I have the same exact issue with my bluetooth headphones (Xiaomi Airdots Pro 2) from a couple of months. I'm on a MacBook Pro 13-inch 2017, on MacOs Mojave 10.14.6 and actually Spotify

**bleep** It's not just me!


I have the exact same issue with Spotify, running on MacOS 10.14.6 (18G3020), while listening through bluetooth headphones (Denon AH-GC20, with aptX codec). The only way to fix it is by restarting Spotify. Other sources of sound play without any issues (youtube, system sounds, even the spotify web player runs fine)


This issue doesn't happen when I'm listening through wired headphones, nor when I listen on my Sonos through Spotify Connect or Airplay.
