Music doesn't resume playing when play is clicked after pausing on phone 0 Recommended Answers 6 Replies 22 Upvotes

Happens again and again. 

When the music is paused on the iPhone and play is clicked after a few mins. The music doesn't resumes playing. When I move the music progress slider a bit back, it starts playing. Can you fix this, please?

I have the same issue on my android, except when I open the screen to hit play again (or moving the slider), the player doesn't respond and the playlist on the player shows as empty. I have to hit x on the player and go into the playlist to start the song from the beginning.

Same! It’s pretty remarkable how terrible it is compared to google play.

Same. I’ve had this issue for months. It’s so annoying that I’ve considered switching to another streaming service because of it.
