My Question or Issue
Connection between Spotfiy and Google Home Mini Speaker crashing/failing: Every time I connect spotify with my Google Home Mini Speaker the following happens: The app skips ahead 3-4-5 random songs in the same play list, plays about 30 sec [if that!] of a song then stops playing altogether. If I open the Google Home app i can see that the device is still being streamed to, the little bars in the icon are moving as tho sound/music is being played. I have rebooted the home wifi service, hard rebooted and soft rebooted the google home mini. Unlinked then linked the spotify app with my google home account. Deleted then added the spotify app on my phone. Cleared the cache. Just about every other troubleshooting suggestion I have found both here and in the Google Help forums. What gives?? This issue I guess is nearly 3-4 years old in some cases why does it keep on occuring? I get that some apps need updating and I checked that everything on my iPhone/iOS was up to date. I even hard re-start the phone!... When is this ongoing connection bug gonna be fixed and what is the current work-around for anyone wanting to stream music? It was really effing embarassing to have a room full of people suddenly go silent because the Spotify app was no longer working nor streaming music to my Google speakers. I even tried using the direct voice request to play "any" music which the Home app would try to do and then "dead air".
