FOUND A FIX. I have an iPhone 7 Plus, and I had this issue. Siri would be activated, music would skip and pause, it was very annoying. If you have an iPhone 7 plus then you know that there is no headphone jack. So the phone comes with an adaptor for you to use other headphones that you own. This issue kept happening with whey pair of earbuds and headphones that I used. I came to the conclusion that it may be the 3.5mm jack to lightning adapter. Today I went to Apple and I purchased a new adapter after the worker told me to schedule an appointment or get new headphones for $30 or more. I tested the new adapter and it fixed everything. No more pauses, Siri, and one side of the headphones playing music. So I recommend purchasing an adapter for $9 if you have an iPhone 7. Thank you and best of luck.
I've tried a clean re-installation and this issue is still persisting. I have a iphone 6s with ios 11.0.1. Spotify version 184.108.40.2062. The pausing and re-starting and changing songs usually happens when my headphones are in and I am walking or running with my phone. I've got 17 playlists. Please help me fix this or else I will need to get rid of my Spotify membership.
I have exactly the same issue... I have an IPhone7 ios11.0.1 when I’m walking the music pauzes, skips all the time... It’s really annoying. I’ve this issue with my Apple earpods that comes with the iPhone and also with my bose headphones (with Lightning to 3,5mm Jack adaptor) Anyone knows a solution for this?
I am having this issue too. It's started in the last month on my iPhone SE, which was new in June.
Spotify is up to date version wise.
If I play music when walking or at the gym the tracks stop and start or skip through the song. Sometimes it gets into a weird loop start and stopping the song constantly. It's making Spotify practically unusable for me as can't start playing songs and put the phone in my pocket or bag without this happening.
I will try new earphones but I think it's an issue with Spotify personally.
I have turned Wake to Raise and Siri off. I have my phone orientation locked so I know none of these fix it.
Will give it another week and then cancel my subscription as Spotify seem to be uninterested in sorting this.
