"Listen along" in discord makes the songs start about 5 seconds in.

"Listen along" in discord makes the songs start about 5 seconds in.

I play games and talk to friends through discord a lot and we really like the listen along feature through spotify but whenever I listen along with a friend and the next song starts my spotify starts the song about 5 seconds ahead of where the host is hearing it. Not a huge problem and I would just try to rewind 5 seconds to be on the same time but it happens every time a new song starts. It throws us off a bit when we hum or sing to a song we both like but we are humming or singing different parts of the same song.

My Question or Issue

 5 Second fast forward at the beginning of each song when "listening along"

Hey @Tradd.


Thanks for reaching out on the Community, and sorry for the late response! We totally get where you're coming from, and we'll be glad to help you out if you're still experiencing this issue 🙂


Could you first provide us with your Spotify app version? You can find this in the three-dots menu (top-left corner) > Help > About Spotify.


In the meantime, could you make sure you've tried the following:

  • Logged out and logged back in to Spotify
  • Reinstalled both Spotify and Discord
  • Closed all background apps
  • Reset your network connection?

Let us know how you get on! We'll be right here in case you need any further help 🙂
