Acer Chromebook 14
My Question or Issue
Reposting this since https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Windows/Chromebook-Song-stops-randomly/m-p/4780289 was wrongfully marked as solved.
When playing Spotify tracks in the web player (only option for Chrome OS, yes happens in the PWA as well), every track will stop for 3-5 seconds 9 seconds into the track.
This does not happen on my Android device on the same network, even when I clear the local storage to make sure it's streaming from the network. It only happens when I use the web player on Chrome OS. I could try as well with my Macbook web player tomorrow if that's desired.
To be clear, I do not exaggerate when I say every single track will pause at 9 seconds. This is reproducible at a 100% rate on my machine.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I fixed it. Here is what I did:
I went to chrome://flags and enabled two options.
New Tab Loading Animation
I restarted my chromebook after this to apply the features, and it somehow fixed it.
Hopes this helps
