First solution: force-reboot your Samsung phone
As always, the easiest solutions are the ones that must be tried first. Thus, in our case, start by force-restarting your Galaxy S10 Plus for fixing the Spotify app. Here’s how to do it properly:

- Press and keep pressing these two buttons for about 10, or 15 seconds.
- Don’t let go until the reboot process is completed.
- That’s all.
Second solution: clear cache and data of Spotify
If refreshing the virtual memory and reloading default apps aren’t fixing the Spotify app on your S10+ it’s time to proceed to the next troubleshooting solution.
This time you have to clear cache and data of the actual app. In this way you will remove minor software problems that might result from a software conflict or from a minor software glitch – for example, if a process is stuck in the background and it interferes with the Spotify functionality and causing your annoying crashes.
You can perform this method from Settings - > Apps - > Spotify - > Storage. A detailed tutorial on how to clear app cache and data on Galaxy S10 Plus can be checked out during our previous tutorials.
