My Question or Issue

If I continue listening to a Podcast after closing the app, it starts a few seconds (or more than 1 minute) after where I stopped. It is very annoying and happens almost every time with every podcast that I have downloaded

Hey @nadymus,


Thanks for getting in touch!


We hope you don’t mind us replying now as we just stumbled upon this thread. Just to confirm, have you tried a clean reinstall of the Spotify app on your device? We recommend this step as it'll remove the old app cache first and then install the new one. These changes tend to solve issues like the one you're experiencing. Give your device a quick restart as well before you open the newly installed app. Keep in mind that you'll have to download your podcasts anew.


If that doesn't fix things, could try logging in with a  friend or family members account and see if you can replicate the issue? This will help us narrow down the root cause of the problem either to your device or your account.


Hope you find this useful. Keep us posted how you get on.
