another thing happening is that the songs play exactly for 2 seconds and go to the next song and do that same thing! after about 5 songs it plays for 9 seconds stops audio and says its still playing. man i do like spotify but if this is the stuff thats gonna happen then why bother!
i've made new accounts/deleted the app and basically everything the spotify customer service told me to do!
The exact same as liboy1 is happening to me! Song changes and the sound gets muted but the song still plays. I've read all the answers and suggested solutions but nothing is working. For me it only happens on my Chrome Web Spotify. I'm have Windows 10 pro and Chrome version is Version 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (64-bit).
I too am starting to think about cancelling my plan and changing to Youtube music or whatever. I've been with Google Music for three years and nothing like that happened.
