##Why does my music keep pausing?

There are a handful of reasons as to why your music keeps pausing randomly. Let's take a look at those reasons now:

music app keep on pausing

1. Running many apps in the background 

Many people have a lot of apps running in the background on their phone, especially if they use their phones for work purposes and need to have other applications open simultaneously. Every time one of those apps refreshes or updates, it can momentarily pause your music. If you're experiencing this issue, try closing some of the background applications and see if that helps.

2. Weak phone signal 

If you're in an area with a weak phone signal, your phone might be struggling to keep a consistent connection with the internet. This can cause your music to pause intermittently. If you're having this issue, try moving to an area with a stronger signal and see if that helps.

3. Headphones not plugged in all the way 

This is a common issue - especially with earbuds. Sometimes the headphone jack isn't plugged in all the way, which can cause the music to pause. Before looking at more complex solutions, be sure that your headphones are plugged in all the way and see if that helps get rid of the skipping.

4. Your phone is too hot. 

This might sound strange, but it's actually a common issue for many people who use their phones outside often during the warmer months. On a hot day, your phone can heat up to such a high temperature that it will pause your music. If this is the case, try to keep your phone in a cooler environment and see if that helps.

5. Your phone is low on storage space 

This one might not be so common for people who have recently upgraded to a newer model phone, but for those who are still using an older phone, it's a possibility. If your phone doesn't have enough storage space, it might start to pause your music in order to make room for other applications. To fix this, try deleting some of the unused files on your phone and see if that helps.

6. The file format of the song is incompatible with your phone 

This one is actually more common than you might think. In today's digital age, there are many different types of files that music can come in - MP3, .WAV, .AIFF, and so on. If your phone doesn't support a certain type of file, it might pause your music. To fix this, try converting the song to a different file format that is compatible with your phone.

7. The song is corrupt. 

This one is also more common than you might think. Sometimes when you download a song, the file might be corrupted and cause the music to pause. If this is the case, try deleting the song and downloading it again.

8. The app you're using to listen to your music is not updated. 

This one is specifically for people who use an app like Spotify or Apple Music to listen to their music. If you're not using the latest version of the app, there might be some glitches that are causing your music to pause. Try updating the app and see if that helps.

9. Your phone is low on battery power 

This one is also more common for people who are using an older model phone. If your phone is running out of battery power, it might start to pause your music in order to save power. To fix this, try charging your phone up to a full battery and see if that helps.

10. Your phone is not near you 

If your phone isn't near you at all, there's a good chance that the app will pause the music in order to save space on your data plan. Before looking into solutions, make sure to be close enough to your phone for it to connect with the internet.

11. Your headphones are not compatible with your device 

This is another more common issue that might be the cause of the music pausing. If you're using a pair of wired headphones, and then plug in a pair of wireless headphones, it might make the original set compatible with all audio devices except for your phone (the reason being that wireless and wired headphones use different jacks). If this is the case, try using a different pair of headphones that are compatible with your device.

##Why does my Music keep pausing when I lock my phone:

This happens when your notifications are turned on. To fix this, go to your phone's settings and turn off the 'Show Notifications' option for Spotify (or the app you're using).
