Xbox One player time bar constantly resets to 00:00






Xbox One


My Question or Issue

When playing music on the Xbox One, the playback timer constantly resets back to 00:00, generally when it hits 00:30 (thirty seconds) or so.  The total length of the song is indicated correctly, and the display changes songs when the audio goes to the next song, but the timer bar never hits the end. It gets to 30-40 seconds, resets to 0, goes to 30-40 seconds, resets to 0, over and over. Audio playback is fine. This occurs when the Genius (?) screen comes up that shows notes and lyrics about the song, as well -- the timer, notes, and lyrics constantly go back to the beginning, even though the audio playback is fine.


Playback on all my other devices (phone, Windows 10 PC, etc.) are fine.  This is limited to the Xbox One.  Connected via ethernet to a fast switch, with Verizon Fios as my provider, so I wouldn't think it's network lag or anything like that. It's a persistent problem -- rebooting the Xbox or restarting the Spotify app doesn't help.


I'd appreciate any help.

Hey all,


Thanks for sending us over examples!


Issue should be resolved. Be sure to reinstall the app both on your mobile devices and on the Xbox. It's also recommended to have the newest firmwares running on your devices.


Let us know if you have further questions. Have a nice day!

I also have the same problem. The progress bar resets every 30 seconds. I hope they fix it soon.

Same issue here. It's not really an issue, just more of a pet peeve thing haha. Happens with all songs.

Add me to the list.  All songs (I play from my personal playlist).  Genius or not, doesn't matter.

System is the 10.????.3066 build on an Xbox One X
Spotify is

I have detailed reporting turned on for my xobx.  Perhaps data is sent back to Microsoft on this?


I take back my earlier comment.  Two days ago I had the issue (and many days before).  I posted as I was about to use it again.., then used it and things appear normal now.  Genius or no genius text, things get past 30 seconds and stay on track now.
