Most would agree that Spotify is a synonym for music. It is the go-to place for millions of users, and its library is so extensive that there is not a song or podcast that you cannot find there.
Besides, among the many loved features of this streaming service are the daily and weekly playlists for users to discover new music similar to what they love. When a song you played on Spotify is over, the platform will play more similar songs, and this is all thanks to the Autoplay function, keeping the party going when a song stops.
But, some users have reported that sometimes their Spotify autoplay stops working, wondering how they can fix it.
We are here to tell you that there is no need for any distress as this can be fixed in no time.
Keep on reading to find out how to do it.
If you think of just deleting and reinstalling the Spotify app, this problem won’t be solved. You need to perform a “Clean Reinstall” of the app, and by doing so, you will install the app with a clean slate and remove all the unnecessary cache being stored.
To do it, these are the steps to follow:
Reminder: This option will free up storage used by the app, but it will keep all its documents and data. After you reinstall the app, it will reinstate all your data if the app is still available in the App Store.
Another reminder: By deleting the Spotify app you will delete all data and documents associated with the app.
Now, before you start the reinstalling process of the Spotify app, you should also shut down your iPhone (press the Power button and the Volume Up/Down button) till the slider appears > drag the slider to turn your iPhone off.
Turn it on again and navigate to the App Store to reinstall Spotify > log in to your Spotify account. Your Spotify Autoplay should be working now.
Close the app and relaunch it to see if the auto-play feature is working fine or not.
It seems that it did work for many users, but if it was not the case with you, several things could help:
Unfortunately, you cannot do that. Spotify needs to run its algorithm for the autoplay function to work properly and it can generate recommended songs only when you are using the app online.
Nevertheless, you can listen to your Spotify playlist songs offline, the ones that you have already added to that playlist.
Apart from this, we can assist you in other fixes if you are having issues when Spotify is not playing the downloaded songs, when Spotify keeps pausing, or when it shows the message error "Spotify can't play this right now".
