Just started today for me too. If they fix it great, but in the mean time I am not paying for this. I'm on iOS 8.1.2  (just updated last week...I gave it time for devs to get their stuff togerher) so I don't know if it is iOS or the app. Either way...8.2.1 has been out awhile and this shouldn't be happening.

Same to me, look also "Spotify constantly pauses songs on iPhone and laptop"

Close out of all the running apps on your iPhone and this should solve the problem with Spotify pausing when you leave the app.

No definitively doesn't work. tested with two iphone 6. it is not a problem of to many apps! For the first time it takes 10-30 minutes after standby for the first music break. After it it comes more and more (1 minute) and then immidetly when you press standby.

I have the same issue. Spotify stop playing as soon as the screen goes to sleep. Never had that before !

I have the same Problem, it stops if I change app or minimize
