I’m listening to my favorite song and Spotify keeps changing the music by itself, how do I fix it? We explain what can cause this problem.
The advantage of streaming platforms is that you can have all your favorite songs in one place. But you may have encountered the problem that Spotify keeps changing the music on its own! What do I do?
The most common thing that can happen is that someone has accessed your Spotify account. This service does not allow you to listen to music from two devices at the same time. Therefore, in case someone else has played a different song than the one you are listening to, the playback will be cut and when you press Play again, the song played by that person will be played.
There are several reasons why this can happen. The first is that you have given your Spotify password to someone else and that person has used the service without your consent. It is also possible that one of the applications you have connected to your account is causing this error. And finally, a third party may have managed to hack your account and take advantage of it, especially if you pay the Premium option.

Why Spotify is changing my song
Knowing why Spotify is changing my track is essential to find a solution. If the problem is that you have given your password to someone who is taking advantage of you, the solution is as simple as talking to that person or directly changing the password.
If you suspect that the problem may be in an application that you have connected to your account, it is time to disconnect it. To do this, go to the Spotify website and go to the Profile section. Within that menu go to Account>Apps and unlink the application that you think is giving you problems.

Why Spotify playback cuts out
If you’re wondering why Spotify playback cuts out, the reality is that there are several different reasons why this problem can occur. As we have discussed in the previous sections, one of the most common causes is that a third party is using your account, which you can solve by following the steps in the previous section.
But it is also possible that there are other types of problems. If your Internet connection is not very good, it is possible that it is not enough to play your songs correctly, so that the playback is cut off periodically. It is also possible that it is a bug in the app. To check the latter, we recommend that you close the application and reopen it. If it still doesn’t work, restart the phone. And if it still doesn’t work, you can try uninstalling the app and reinstalling it. If it’s a small bug, it’s easy to fix it this way.
