My Question or Issue

With the most recent update to Spotify on the Android platform, the buttons that allow 15sec skip forwards & skip backwards have disappeared on Android Auto when listening to podcsts.  They have been replaced with a playback speed button to the left of the play button only.  This is incredibly annoying because it does not allow skipping forwards or...more importantly...skipping backwards if something is missed.

 

However the skip forward & skip back buttons are there when using the app on the device itself. They are only missing from Android Auto.

 

Can this please be fixed?

Ok it appears this has been fixed with the latest update released overnight. The skip buttons are back in Android Auto.  

 

Thanks Spotify!

Yes! This is incredibly frustrating and seems like a bug. There doesn't seem to be an intuitive reason as to why they were removed?
