My Question or Issue
When I start playing music on my phone, then I start Spotify on my PC and I press the play button the music stops on my phone, then my PC starts the song, but after 3 seconds it stops it. After that each time I press the play button it stops after 1 second. I also tried "switching devices" (both mobile and PC), remove app data/cache (on mobile). I also changed the download direction, checked without high-quality streaming, and with downloaded songs too.
The issue also represents if the devices are on the same WIFI network, or not.
Solving the problem: Close the application on all other devices, then wait for approx 10 minutes.
This issue is bothering me for months, and I tired of solving this issue manually every single time.
PS: Your spell checker doesn't know the word: "Spotify"

That sounds odd, and this shouldn't happen. It seems you've already tried a couple of things. Does the music go back to the device you switched from? Also, do you use the Web Player?
Let's try some more troubleshooting:
