Yeah, I tried this and it did nothing. I thought it might be because I was using my PC on web player to skip songs, but after ending Spotify in task manager, it still skipped on the home.

After trying everything that was suggested on this board, my google home was still cutting out the music.

 

I realized that this issue was due to wireless connectivity merely. I played with my wireless connectivity and I think I found the solution for this common issue.

 

What I did was very simple. I switched from 5g wireless to the regular one (2g) on the google home app, and now the music from spotify is playing with no issues.

 

Try it, it worked for me !

This is still happening and is extremely annoying. I'm a premium spotify member and having it buffer for my google mini is ridiculous.

Brother, I tried everything and was about to give up on Google Home and Mini altogether...but I realized the issue ONLY happened when I was streaming from my Android (BlackBerry KeyOne). It started happening after a recent update. It was TOTALLY the notifications issue. Thanks so much for suggesting this. It made total sense as soon as I read it. Even before making the adjustment, I knew it was going to fix the issue because the notification tab has been intermittent. 

 

Thanks so much!!

Don't know if you're still having this issue, but I believe it's a notifications issue. I blocked notifications from Spotify and Google Home. Worked like a charm. Inconvenient, but works. Am sure future updates will resolve. Could also be an issue with how certain wi-fi networks handle the constant communications back and forth.
