Podcast position not remembered in app


Podcast position not remembered in app

iOS 13


For the last month or two, when I start playing a podcast, stop, and restart again at a later time, the position playback starts in is not where I stopped listening. The position in playback is about where I left off from the start of the previous playback.


I usually listen at 1.5 speed, and I think when listening at that speed, this happens and not at 1x playback speed.

Hey there @Rogdooley


Thanks for searching for the answer you need here! 

Just to confirm, have you tried a clean reinstall of the Spotify app on your iPhone? We recommend this step as it'll remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. This tends to solve issues with the app's playback features.


Give your device a quick restart as well before you open the newly installed app. 


It's also a good idea to log in to your Spotify account on another device just to check if you observe the same. If it doesn't occur on a different device, we'd suggest making sure that your original device is up to speed with any software updates available.

Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

I've done the reinstall, but since we've been stuck at home, I haven't been able to test this.
