THERE is nothing more annoying than singing along to your favourite song while in the shower, only to have it paused out of nowhere.

Here are some reasons why your music might be pausing on Spotify and what you can do to prevent it from happening.

Why does my Spotify keep pausing?

Spotify gives several reasons why it may keep pausing your music.

The first one might be that the installation on your phone was not made right.

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling the app on your phone, and hopefully, that should work.

If that is not the case, then it might be that someone is listening to music on your account from a different device and keeps pausing it.

You might have forgotten to log out when you used it on another device, and now people are using your account.

Resetting your password is an option if you do not have the device it was once logged in to.

If your account was created through Facebook, then you will need to log out of your Facebook account on all devices and change its password too.

If you have the device near or know who's playing music on it, then you can simply just log out of it or ask them politely to do so.

Another reason that Spotify gave is having lesser cellular coverage.

It can also be that some unauthorised gained access to your account is listening to music without your permission.

How can I prevent my Spotify from pausing

There are ways to try and prevent your Spotify from ever pausing again.

Firstly, make sure that no one else is streaming music on your account while you are.

It is also better not to keep your phone on low power mode when you're using Spotify so that it doesn't interfere with the stream.

In the case where you do not have a good connection, you should lower the Music Quality.

If you're listening to music through a desktop, then just click Settings from the arrow in the top-right corner and under Music Quality select preferred settings.

Then choose the audio quality setting from the table in Music Quality details.

If you're listening to music through your phone or a tablet, tap Home and then Settings.

Under Music Quality choose your preferred settings.

If you're having data issues, try disabling data saver mode too because this might limit the amount of data that Spotify can use and cause it to pause.

If you plan to listen to music on the train or a plane, it is best to try and download your music, and that way you can keep listening uninterrupted while completing your journey.
