Hi, I just recently got a Google Home and I can't seem to get a consistent stream when playing spotify through the device. Spotify works flawlessly when I play through a device on the same network. Is there a way I can change the streaming bitrate for Google Home in order to get a smooth playback?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Last update from me. After taking to Twitter, Spotify support advised to try a re-link of my account again using the Google Home App. This appears to have now fixed the issue. While I had done this previously, it is possible they resolved an underlying issue that the re-link will fix.
If you haven't done this in the last few hours and are still experiencing the issue, perhaps give it a try.
Open your Google Home App > Devices > Google Home > Music > Un-link
Link to Spotify > Enter credentials > Done > Test.
Good luck everyone; I hope this is the last we see of this issue.
Just did this via music tab on main menu, seems to have worked, hadn’t buffered for 2 songs and it was doing it every 20-30 seconds Will see how it goes. Thanks heaps for the post!
Had same problem, went to devices in google home app and stopped notifications for all android devices connected to same WiFi and somehow this has fixed the music pausing problem. Also stops people connected to same wifi getting an annoying notification that someone has connected a device. Maybe on certain phones that get the notification, the feature could be interfering with the Spotify stream? I dunno but now I'm 4 songs in and no pausing! Good luck guys, hope it works for you too
