Skips / Buffers on WiFi using Android 6.0

All stations buffer. Turn off wifi and airplane mode, mobile data kicks in, songs play. Turn airplane mode back on, turn wifi back on, nothing but buffering and skipping.

Webpages load just fine on the device in this configuration.

Pandora works just fine on PC on the same network connection.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 running Marshmallow.

Hey there, @pegasus4. 👋

Sounds like you may be running on Android 6.0. I would recommend checking out @TannerPandora's post about minimum specifications for Android devices here.

Another option is to run through the troubleshooting steps to see if this helps with the buffering issue. If you're able to listen using cellular data, it should work while using WiFi too.

Feel free to let me know how if those steps help. 📲

Yeah, that's what "Marshmallow" means.

Fantastic. Thanks for abandoning a section of your userbase with no upgrade path other than spending money on a new phone we don't need, some of whom have been users for the past FOURTEEN YEARS.

Did that. I wouldn't be here otherwise.

You'd think, but no. You guys screwed something up somewhere.

 

>Feel free to let me know how if those steps help.

 

No. No, none of this has helped. I guess I'll go try Spotify. Thanks for screwing us.

I am having the SAME issue. Songs buffering ALL the time. It's so annoying. I've now cancelled my subscription and switching back to YouTube, I'll give Spotify a try too.
