Samsung Galaxy A51
My Question or Issue
My Spotify account won't play full songs on my phone unless I click "Shuffle Play". Otherwise, whenever I click on a song it will just play a demo clip that's about 5-10 seconds long. My acount has never done this on other devices, and when I tried it out on my computer earlier it worked fine. I've already tried linking Spotify to my Samsung account and redownloading the app twice, but it still didn't fix the problem. I included a screenshot of it playing a demo clip, and I know that all of the songs I tried playing aren't blocked. Please help me if you can, thank you!
Edit: I found out that the web player will work just fine, it's only the app that's having problems.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!
It sounds like you're having troubles playing music on demand on the mobile app.
Keep in mind that your Liked Songs playlist is not a Pick and Play playlist, which would explain what is happening here.
When you’re using the free service, you can listen to any track fully via Shuffle Play, as you noticed.
You can also select any track on Pick and Play playlists (playlists without the Shuffle icon ) to listen to the full track rather than a just a short preview.
Hope this info is helpful but don't hesitate to give us a shout if there's anything else.
Have a lovely day 🙂
