[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. 

Screenshots in Spoiler below:

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!

Have the very same problem on PC since the latest update to version 0.9.10.14, queuing tracks isn't that nice at the moment as the last song queued is being played twice... :P

Not a bug fix, but if you queue the song (even if it's in your play queue) from somewhere else, i.e. the album page, it tends not to do the queue skip (I think).

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.

Same issue, with Desktop version in Windows 7 (SP 1) and Spotify 0.9.10.14. And exactly like yzerman said, it happens in shuffle mode too.
