How do I stop music from buffering while streaming in my car?

Over the last few day I have not been able to stream music in my car. It always stops for buffering.  It has never happened before. Now it won't work. Always on LTE.

vross here is what I'd suggest:

Settings > Cellular > Scroll down to the music service in question (Music (Apple Music), Spotify, Rhapsody, Google Play Music, etc.) and make sure that it is toggled on to use cellular. I'm guessing this hasn't changed for you but worth a shot.

Next, go into your streaming music service and see what quality you have the music set to. Normally, a streaming service defaults to a lower quality for over the air streaming say on LTE. I'm guessing this is the case but make sure it isn't set to high quality. When I set my streaming services to hight quality I run into buffering as well. Let us know if this helps.

Being without music in the car is almost impossible for me, so I can imagine when you have that favorite song playing and it stops suddenly how that feels. Have you checked your storage availability on your phone? Are you restarting your phone on a regular basis, full power off and on? Have you downloaded or needed any updates to your phone or apps recently? Is this an app, or the music saved on your device? Let's start here and see what is happening.
