My Question or Issue

 I usually listen to Spotify by pairing my phone to my Xbox so i can listen to it while i play games. It was working earlier today but when i tried an hour ago Spotify kept pausing every 1-3 seconds when paired to my Xbox. I've tried signing out of all devices, hard reseting the Xbox, uninstalling and reinstalling the Xbox Spotify App, turning down my audio quality, turning off the power saving and data saving modes, and pairing the web player to the Xbox. I don't know what to do. Are there any fixes to this issue?

Hey everyone,


The right teams took a look backstage and this should be fixed now! Please make sure you're on the latest version of the app 🙂


If you're on the latest version of the app and you're still experiencing this, we absolutely want to know. Please post in Help - Other if you are so we can investigate ASAP.

Have a good one!
