Background playback issue

I posted it before, but no one replied…
Plz help me.

Old post from the spotify forums but seems like things you could try with any app.

Hey all,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Please do a clean reinstall. Before that, you’d have to disconnect all your devices for offline listening from your account here.

Then follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your phone.
  2. Select “Apps”.
  3. Tap “Spotify” in the app list.
  4. Tap on “Storage> Clear Data” for a clean reinstallation.
  5. Tap Uninstall.
  6. Open Google Play and install the Spotify Music app.

There is something else you could do if that does not help. Go to:

  1. Mobile Settings> Apps> Spotify> Permissions. Allow everything you see there.
  2. Mobile settings> Apps> Spotify> Battery> Optimize battery usage> select All (not optimized for apps)> Spotify> disable.
  3. Restart the phone.

Let us know how it goes :slightly_smiling_face:
