Check if Someone Else is Using Your Account

  • Verify if a different individual is using your account.

Ensure Other Apps Aren't Interrupting

  • To avoid interruptions when using Spotify, change the settings of these apps or close them.

Resolve Discord Interference (Windows)

  • Spotify may cause issues if you use a PC and Discord is open at the same time. Use Task Manager to end Discord services.

Allow Spotify to Run in the Background

  • Spotify can at times stop while it's minimized or idle due to device settings. Navigate to the settings on your device and allow Spotify to operate in the background.

Check Your Connection Stability

  • Spotify may be interrupted due to unstable internet or Bluetooth connectivity. Check your internet speed, move closer to the Wi-Fi access point, and make sure your Bluetooth devices are within range.

Clear Spotify Cache

  • Interruptions can occur from Spotify's corrupted cache files. To fix this, go into Spotify settings and clear the cache.

Update or Reinstall Spotify

  • Check for upgrades in your desktop app or app store if none of the above solutions work. For a new start, think about reinstalling Spotify if there isn't an update available.
