Amazon Fire Stick is a widely used streaming device that gives users access to a wide range of entertainment options.
It’s a small device that plugs into your TV’s HDMI port and turns it into a smart TV that can stream content from a variety of online platforms.
One of the popular applications available for Amazon Fire Stick is Spotify. After installing the app on Fire Stick, users can enjoy all the features and benefits of Spotify on their TV screen.
Amazon Fire Stick goes to sleep while Spotify plays songs
However, Amazon Fire Stick users have recently reported an issue where their TV goes to sleep even when the Spotify app is actively playing songs (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
Users have noticed that the TV display switches to standby mode even when actively playing songs on the Spotify app using Amazon Fire Stick.
This behavior matches the Fire Stick’s default setting when the TV is on and the Fire Stick is not in use.
However, the Fire Stick doesn’t know that Spotify is running and instead of continuing to display the app or music interface, it treats Spotify as if it were idle and activates sleep mode.
Interrupting the Fire Stick by going to sleep disrupts the listening experience, especially if the user is engaged in a long music session or playlist.
After updating Spotify on my Fire Stick TV, it started automatically shutting down in power saving mode in about 30 minutes
@AskSpotifyStarsSpotify won’t turn on on any Fire Stick device. Everything blacks out after about 5 minutes. I tried everything and the problem persisted. I started using it a few days ago and have been using it daily. Any ideas?
It can be annoying and inconvenient for affected users as it requires the device to be constantly woken up.
Additionally, the issue reportedly only started occurring after a recent update, suggesting that it may be a software-related issue rather than a hardware issue.
Fortunately, Amazon is aware of this issue and is actively working on a solution. However, there is no ETA for the fix yet.
It is important for Amazon to address this concern promptly to ensure seamless functionality of streaming devices and improve the user experience.
