At Night, How Can I Turn My Android Phone Screen Off, When Listening To Spotify App?

Mainly listening in bed, the screen annoyingly won't go off, so I can listen in the dark falling asleep. 

 

Music paused or off - I can darken my screen. 

 

Music playing - I touch the power button to get a black screen but Spotify immediately forces the screen back on. (also happens even if on another app window)

 

New Xiaomi android phone. Other android devices, I have don't have this problem.

While i don't have xiaomi phone, spotify should be able to play when the screen is off.
Did you check the settings for forcing the display to be on while playing media?

Hey there @jacknpoppy,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community.

 

As @user-removed mentioned, Spotify should continue to play in the background when you're screen is locked without waking it up. We suggest to check on your phone's settings > notifications > Spotify and make sure to disable any option to keep your screen on while locked.

 

Let us know how it goes. We'll be here in case you have any questions.

 

Cheers!
