Certain applications fail to connect to internet

I’ve got 5 bars and, at home, a strong Wi-Fi signal. Firefox and all Google apps are working as expected, Facebook is fine and NOAA weather as well. My banking software, Boost (Reddit app), Spotify, Pandora, and Netflix all claim there is no network/internet connection. All of the websites for these apps work in browser. I’ve tried checking my date/time, resetting all network settings, resetting all app permissions, adding power saving exceptions, trying with my VPN (Surfshark) on, and of course, restarting my phone. Nothing helped in the slightest. This has been happening for about 1 week now and started while I was just using Boost normally. Wanted to load the next page, then bam, no connection all of a sudden and none since.

My phone is a Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact running Android 9.

Any suggestions? Thanks for reading.
