Why is it only playing 50 seconds of a song?

My spotify is only playing like the first 45-50 seconds of a song...then it stops. I have tried different songs, etc... has anyone else had this problem? Please help!!

What device are you using to play Spotify?

I'm having this issue now.... These are songs that I've synced for offline listening. Twice I've had to delete the app and download app again to attempt to troubleshoot the issue.

this is happening to me too.  I dont know how to fix it but would love to know.

Hey @randaogden 


I'd recommend reinstalling your Spotify client to give it a clean restart. 🙂

See this article on how to do a clean reinstall!


If that didn't help, please let me know what device and operating system you're using.


Keep me updated 🙂

This started happening this morning for me.  It is happening on my laptop as well as my Galaxy S10. 

I can try reinstalling, but why would this happen to both devices at the same time?
