Ps4 Spotify tracks keeps pausing its self after 1-3 seconds of trying to play any track

My spotify app on my ps4, every time I try to play any of the music tracks 

 It just seems to pause it's self after 1 to 3 seconds of trying to play any track, it would be grateful if spotify could fix this bug issue because it is getting very annoying.

Just as a test I downloaded the Spotify app to my TV (Samsung 4k) and it has the same problem so it's not a PS4 issue. Spotify plays fine on my iPhone but once I choose my TV or PS4 from "Other Devices" on the mobile app they both start pausing.

Same issue here on my PS3 4.83 with latest Spotify version. I've tried with a Facebook linked account and with another one that's not linked. Both failing the same way, sometimes I don't even get 0.5s sound. It's not fixed at all!!

Has anyone from spotify and responded back? Seems like really bad customer support.

I just started having this problem today, and I've tried absolutely everything. People are saying its a problem with Samsung TVs, but I don't own a Samsung TV. Not sure what to do about this

Same problem here. Started happening when Comcast internet went down approximately at the same time for the entire region. 

 

Im here in the PNW, just S-SW of Seattle. 

I cant help, but wonder if the two incidents coincide.

We have cox,i heard there was a problem related to windows 10 updates because of a bad dns fix microsoft rolled out on comcasts dns infrastructure that started interfering with windows updates,not surprised,cox aparently had issues last night as well in my local area,i talked to a rep when i asked about our router.

Same here on Sony tv.  Pretty lame!  Was going to give this a shot for the 1st time.  Not a good start, i think I will stick with google play.  You would think that spotify would work great on sony tv and ps4.  Too bad sony doesnt have a deal with google.

I don't normally have problems with spotify,but i suspect its related to accounts linked to facebook.cant test out my theory right as im just booting up my pc.on phone right now.will attempt to unlink my fb and use regular user name an password on ps4.
