Over the past few years, Spotify has evolved into a more robust music streaming service, allowing users to stream endless hours of music content for free. Today, Spotify has over 250+ million active monthly users, and it has become a go-to-music streaming service for many.
While using the Spotify mobile app on your Android device, you might have noticed a slight delay while switching songs. Have you ever wondered why? This is not a feature; it’s a bug or indication of a corrupted/outdated cache file. Although Spotify for Android is primarily bug-free, users can still face problems due to outdated or corrupted cache files.

The cache file stores songs you have downloaded for offline playback on Spotify premium, whereas the free version stores your listening history. Outdated or corrupted cache files in Spotify invite many troubles such as app crashing in the middle of a song, app taking forever to open, etc.
