[Android 4.4] Taking a photo breaks headphone output

I've found another bug on the new Nexus 5 with Android 4.4 KitKat: 

If you take a photo while listening to spotify with your headphones, the Spotify audio output switches to the internal speaker. You have to stop the song, plug headphones out and back in. Then restart the song and it works again (probably is a Spotify problem, because I couldn reproduce this with Google Play Music).

Thanks for posting this. I'll escalate it to the staff :)

 

EDIT: I meant to ask. This doesn't happen with the built in music player?

Happened only with Spotify. But the bug seems to be gone after a factory reset. I'll report back if it reappears.

I actually have this problem when I take a screenshot, Spotify then switches to External Speaker instead of just muting during the snap sound. I just need to pause and play again to make it work though. 

What's a Spotify Rock Star, and how do I become one?
