No, I have an enterprise mesh network in my house and I still have major issues with this. I have also reserved an IP for my Echo and restricted its network privileges to only one AP

I still can't explain it, but I have had no problems streaming Spotify
since I moved my wifi hotspot closer to the Echo Dot. It's been pretty much
flawless since then. It's odd that this should impact one service (Spotify)
and not the other (Amazon Music).

Try to turn off the bluetooth on the device that you use to connect the spotify.

I bought my echo dot some time ago and it never gave a problem playing spotify.

However, once I left my cell phone, which commands the spotify, with the bluetooth enabled, and my echo dot started to have some problems of streming spotify. This way, I disabled the bluetooth on my cell phone, and my echo dot returned to work properly again.

Have the same issue, when play just on one echo dot spotyfy play ok but with multiroom when connecten do other stop playing after 2, 3 song. This is very flustrating as I bought alexa to mainly stream spotify. The only one thing coming to my head that AMAZON DELIBERATELY STOPPING PLAYING SPOTIFY so users can stream they own platform which is amazon music. Can find any other reason this issue is going for long time amazon will fix it if he want to.

I think it's an Alexa problem. Most of the time I play Spotify through Alexa, it cuts out and/or stops playing after a few songs. It was cutting out for me, so I stopped playing through Alexa, and had it play Spotify from the speaker Alexa was using (Bose SoundTouch with direct connection to Spotify via wifi), and it played flawlessly. I think it's either the WiFi adapter or software in the Alexa that's not good. The WiFi in the Bose, which is next to the DOT, works fine.

I am having this same problem. Gone through the littinay of restarts, reboots, reinstalls still nothing. I can see the song playing in the Spotify app but nothing from the echo. I saw one comment that recommended turning off gapless playback but that did nothing either. At first I figured this is how Amazon was going to get us to splurge for a new echo. It doe sthe same thing with Pandora too.

My echo was stopping regardless of what music app, and even some other apps. I plugged it in to a stronger USB plug, fixed. Make sure it's getting enough electricity!
