Google home keeps stopping to buffer

Re: Google home keeps stopping to buffer NOT FIXED

No matter what I try, this issue STILL occurs. The relinking 'fix' didn't fix it, either! 

 

sometimes my spotify just stops and doesnt even start again. other times it stops for 5 minutes, sometimes it stops briefly ever 30 seconds.

I read on the google forums that other people have this issue, and they also can't find a fix, regarding, possibly various google devices interfiering with the connection to the google mini, and dropping the stream connection or something. 

 

Either spotify is the issue, or google is the issue, or maybe both? But I really hope this finds a fix soon, :( because I might just switch to a different service, as this ONLY happens with spotify on the google mini, I really don't want to switch though, I like spotify!

I have just bought the Google home max and have this issue constantly. No one in my family can play Spotify .

 

Just stops playing, even though Google home app states everything is playing just fine 

 

Guess what? Google's own music service works flawlessly.... Funny that!

Does not resolve the issue, still experiencing problems. Can anyone from Spotify provide some clarity around this issue and unmark this as 'Resolved' because it's not!

There are similar complaints on Google's forums also.

This worked for me:

 

1: Unlink your Spotify account

       Google Home -> Devices -> Device Name -> Settings -> Music -> unlink

2: Reboot Google Home

3: Relink Spotify

Did this twice and still have the same issue. Tried rebooting the device and nothing yet. Playback is just fine from my cellphone on the same Wifi network and playing Google Play Music on the same Google Home device works flawlessly.i must say this only started happening a few days ago so wondering what could have caused it.

I’m from Philippines and this also happened to me. I tried every single fix but Spotify is buffering if played using command on Google Home mini!

 

I have a very stable Fiber Internet Connection @50Mbps and spotify is buffering?

 

Google and Spotify should sort this out! We are paying and you cant give us a quality service?

 

THIS IS NOT YET SOLVED

I just purchased my Google Home Mini today, and I'm having the same problem. Everything was working fine on my original Google Home, so this is only a problem for me on my mini. Google Play music works fine however. Have tried all the reboot methods and nothings worked
