My Question or Issue
Spotify crashes ~30-90 seconds after putting app in background or locking screen while app is in foreground. When I open the app again, it’s paused at the start of the song, not at the location in the song during the crash.
I have tried:
logging out and logging back in
uninstalling and reinstalling
updating operating system and then uninstalling/reinstalling
ensuring all permissions for Spotify app are on
ensuring no battery optimization is on
this happens while connected to wifi or not. The app is unusable in this state. Thanks.
