My Question or Issue

Yesterday, I tried playing music on my phone after a spotify update and found that there was a horribly crackling whenever I played anything. I cleared storage and cache and reinstalled and found the problem persisted. This is not an issue with playback device, as I have tested with the inbuilt speakers of the phone, wired headphones and bluetooth headphones and found that the issue is consistently on beta and not build.

 

However, this issue is not present on the stable channel. I think this bug was merged into the beta channel in version 8.6.16.193, assuming that each patch update increments the last value by 1, as the current version is 8.6.16.194 , as it worked fine two updates ago.

 

Cheers!
