In this guide, we are going to discuss how to restart Spotify in only a few steps so you can get back to streaming your favorite songs.
It may sometimes happen to me that my Spotify screen is frozen, or suddenly unable to navigate the app. If you have the same issue, you are at the right place. I will guide you on how to restart Spotify quickly so you do not have to go another minute without your favorite music.
Spotify may sometimes become unresponsive, leaving you unable to navigate its features or music playlists.
You can restart the app on your phone and desktop by closing the Spotify tab and reopening it after a few seconds.
If a simple restart does not resolve the issue, perform a force stop to terminate the app’s operation.
How To Restart Spotify?
This simple fix helped many users on Reddit. I will discuss the steps to restart Spotify on your Android mobile phone, iPhone, and PC.
From the Spotify app, press the “Recents” button on the left hand of your phone’s navigation bar. It should look like three vertical lines. (May differ with different phone models)
It will show you all the recently used apps on your phone.
“Swipe Up” on Spotify to close the app completely.
Now, come back to the “Homescreen.”
Find “Spotify” and open it for a successful restart.
Come to the “Homescreen” using the “Home” button on your iPhone.
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
You will see the apps running in the phone’s background.
Navigate to Spotify.
“Swipe up” on the Spotify preview panel to close the app on your iPhone.
Launch the “Homescreen” and open Spotify.
Click on the “x” button on the right side of the Spotify tab.
Go to your browser.
Type “Spotify” and wait for the search results to load.
What To Do If Restarting Spotify Does Not Fix The Problem?
If the app still shows unresponsiveness on your device, the next option is to force-stop the application. It will immediately end all the ongoing and background operations of Spotify on your device to clear any temporary bugs and glitches.
Here is a detailed guide on how to force-stop Spotify on your device.
From the homescreen, tap on the “Settings” icon. It looks like a wheel.
Scroll down to find the “Apps” section. Choose it.
Locate “Spotify” and select it.
You will see a “Force Stop” button at the extreme right of the bottom panel.
Tap on it to end Spotify’s operation.
Next, relaunch the app from the “Homescreen.”
You must follow the same method you used to restart the app on your iPhone. There is no specific option to force-stop an app on an iPhone.
