[iOS][Desktop] Queuing Track In Playlist Causes a Queue skip (plays track twice)

Thread686892

Status: Under Investigation

Description:

Queuing a track in iOS, which is located later on the playlist which is currently playing will cause the track to play twice. This happens due to all of the tracks between the hard queued copy of the track, and the soft queued (playlist) copy of the track being skipped out of the play queue. 

 

This appears to have been introduced as a bug in the desktop client in v0.9.10.x as well. 

 

To reproduce:

  1. Start Spotify
  2. Play a playlist
  3. Queue any track which is later on that playlist. 
  4. Once the track plays once, the Spotify app will skip all tracks between the two queued copies of the track in the playlist, therefore playing the track twice.

Using Spotify Connect to view the play queue over on my android device (since you can't view play queue on iOS), I can see:

 

Queued Horizons:

Horizons then plays:

Horizons then plays again, Spotify skips Goodbye and Punching in a dream from the Play Queue:

After it has played twice, the next track plays:

Workaround:

None.

 

Additional information:

The same issue does not appear to happen when queuing on android.

 

If you are having either of these issues please can you post below:

-- Version of Spotify you're using
-- Version of iOS you're using

 

Thanks!

Hey everyone! This was fixed on the desktop in the 0.9.13 version of the desktop app. Are any of you still having trouble on your iOS device? If so please let us know.

It plays twice in a row though on iOS, even if its not the next track in the "soft" queue. 

 

In the example above, the playlist (as soft queued when you start playback) is:

Bravado

Goodbye

Punching In a Dream

Horizons

Warflower

 

If you then hard queue Horizons you get:

Bravado

Horizons (hard queued)

Goodbye

Punching In a Dream

Horizons (soft queued)

Warflower

 

Once Bravdo ends you get:

Horizons (soft queued)

Warflower

 

So not only does it miss out Goodbye and Punching In a Dream, but it immediately plays Horizons again (which is a bug in my eyes).

Same issue - and not sure about the skipping between songs being the bug.

 

I have my playlist on shuffle - and when I queue a song, it plays twice. That seems to be the glaring bug, at least for me since I don't usually listen to my playlists in order.



When you're listening to a shuffled playlist (as you and I clearly do), if you look at the upcoming songs after your queued tracks, they'll all change after the track plays twice.

Steps to reproduce:
