I have Spotify connected to my Alexa and enjoy it most of the time. But it seems to simply stop playing at various times. If I switch to my Spotify app on my iPad, I see it appears that the song continues to play, but I don't hear anything on Alexa. If I ask "what is playing", Alexa is more than happy to tell me. Everyone tells me "it's clearly a netowrk problem" but the rest of my house continues to happily steam various sources via Verizon FIOS. I have rebooted Alexa numerous times and get no benefit. Any ideas would be welcome!

It happens to me too.  I have Alexa dot and Bose SoundTouch 10.  Happening on both.  Regardless of where I start Spotify from.  iPad, iPhone, the speaker itself or through Alexa.

I thought it might just be Spotify, but it happens when I ask Alexa to
listen to the radio as well (via TuneIn).

Turns out this appears to be related to wifi signal strength. Or something to do with the wifi. I moved the echo dot closer to my primary wifi (versus the Actiontec repeater) and it seems to be working flawlessly now.

I will try that, although I am very close to the wifi

I have stopped listening to Spotify because of this. Trialing SiriusXM and so far so good. Been listening for atleast 30 hours now.

I have been ahving this issues for months and have reset it multiple times, and it's sitting directly above the wifi router so I know it's not connectivity issues. Now I ahve a second one and it's doing the sma ethign on the new one as well. I think it's a bad design with Spotify, it never happens with Pandora or Amazon music.

I have the same issue and it's getting very annoying as it keeps happening every 2nd or 3rd song! Did anyone find a way to fix this? Thanks :)
