Problems while playing songs, songs dont' start at beginning

Regular

 

Hi all, Lately I have a problem playing songs on Spotify. When I for instance listen to some playlists, I get some problems playing the songs. When I skip to the next song, the song does not start at the beginning of the song. Some songs start at 6 seconds, some at 15, some even at 45 seconds. This is super annoying and I am experiencing this already for a long time. It's not the crossfade transition, because I have that turned off. I experience this problem on my iPhone and Macbook. I already tried, log out log in, delete the app and reinstall. Nothing works.... What can I do?

Yes and it starts for instance at 45 seconds, I contacted Spotify to ask if this is a bug or not. It's kind of difficult to explain here.

Hey @marcel2209, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

Could you tell me on which playlists does this happen? Any screenshots would help too.


Hope it helps 🙂

It happens to the Mint playlist and the Swag House Playlist by Spotify.

Hey @marcel2209,

 

I see now, this is a feature on those playlists where songs are crossfaded by Spotify.

 

I wondered why that heppened only on some places too, free and Premium 🙂

I think it's a bug, because when a friend of mine plays the same playlists, this does not happen?

Hey @marcel2209,

 

That's odd, I've tested it in tens of accounts and it's the same because I was wondering why this thing was happening but it's seems it was something normal for those playlists 🙂

That is weird, because if I skip to the next song for instance. The previous song is still playing while seeing the cover of the next one. This is for sure a bug and not kind of standard crossfade in spotify playlists.

Hey @marcel2209,

 

So to get this straight, the real issue is when you skip to the next song the previous one still plays?
