Google Pixel/Samsung Galaxy Watch Active
My Question or Issue
I'm experiencing high battery usage from the Spotify app when connected to my Galaxy watch Active in remote playback mode, even when no music is playing from the phone. Android battery usage stats show 35% battery consumed by the Spotify app. In comparison, the Samsung health app is also running in the background at all times and connected to the watch but uses only 1-2% battery.
I understand that the watch always being connected to my phone via Bluetooth will have some effect on battery life, but the Spotify app appears to be misbehaving as it's consuming close to half of my phone's battery without me even playing music.
Please let me know if others have experienced this behaviour and if a fix exists.
