Spotify stops playing after a minute!

David

So your Spotify seems to be stopping after a minute or so of playback. Let's try and get it working again. Below, I've popped a couple of troubleshooting suggestions for you. 

 

* First of all, try restarting your phone. Recently, we have seen this to be working for a number of users who seem to leave their devices on most of the time. 

 

* Next step, a force close of Spotify. In the application, hold down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" option appears, then hold down the home button. This should close the application. Open it up again, and it hopefully should be working. 

 

* If that doesn't work, try changing the streaming / sync quality settings in your settings menu from the default option. You might also have some luck turning off Gapless and Crossfade Tracks.

 

* Still no luck? Then it might be time for a clean installation. All the instructions you need can be found right here

 

These should hopefully stop Spotify pausing for you!

Nice tips...and they work but only for a while. I know for me, I've done all of these at some point and it'll run fine for a few hours, and then go back to stopping every 30 seconds or so. It's gotten to the point where I have to delete the app every day and reinstall just for it to work for those 3 or 4 hours. There has got to be a better way.

i have been having this issue within the past week...seems that if you pause and play it will start working fot a little but then stop again...have tried everything on the list with no help...will try fresh install and see if that helps.  

 

note: just realzed this is for playlist that have been synced but have not tried for items that are streamed directly

I have the same exact issue and have used all of the troubleshooting steps including reinstalling Spotify.  I am using a Verizon iPhone 4 on iOS 6.  Just curious what phone, network, and iOS version others having the issue are using.

ok I got irritated and re-installed app version 0.5.5.23 / 0.8.2.1391 and its working perfectly fine now so i am guessing that this is bug in the app (not sure what is causing it)  :O)
