My Question or Issue

 

I noticed over the past few days that whenever I play a song from any of my playlists (not under the liked songs section) the app will crash after fifty seconds to a minute. But the really weird part is that it will ONLY crash if I don't actually have the app open and on the screen. If I shut my phone off, open any other app, or just go to the home screen the music will play for some amount of time and then the app will completely restart and I have to reboot the app and start the song all over again. I’ve restarted my phone multiple times and this issue is still not fixed. Help would definitely be appreciated!

Hey there @lillydog338,

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Community! We'll be happy to help you out.

We suggest you run a clean reinstall since this step can usually solve issues rendering Spotify to malfunction. You can find the necessary steps here.  

 

If that doesn't do the trick we recommend you check if the app has all permissions activated. You should also deactivate any battery optimization or power saving apps for Spotify.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted how you get on.

 

Have a great day!

I had the same issue and a clean reinstall helped solve the problem for around a week but now its happening again. I have an iPhone 7, the latest version of Spotify, and premium. Do you have any suggestions? It also only crashes if I leave the app.
