Yes!!! This is my exact same biggest overall issue with Spotify. I've been a premiuim and family premium subscriber for over 3 years now and this is total BS.
I mostly use Spotify in my vehicle with the phone mounted in landscape but Spotify suddenly can't autorotate to landscape?????!!!! It is a huge distraction with no longer being able to just swipe left or right to change songs let alone trying to read sideways.
Sorry Scott they won't fix it, they want us to buy their Little Thing (a ridiculous car gadget that is completely useless... How this project came to production is really mysterious... I think drug is legal in Spotify ingeneers land, I can't see another explanation)
Spotify really aggravates the **bleep** out of me sometimes. They take a year or two to make the app got horizontal (like 7 years ago) and now they turn it off. There is one reason I haven't dropped spotify and gone to YT or Tidal and that's because I have one massive playlist with everything on it. Any suggestions to transfer that list to a new app? YT preferably. I'm tired of paying money to spotify when they turn around and screw up the app and make the experience unenjoyable.
For reelz. That's the only reason I still keep them. I really don't feel like redoing my playlist over again. But if you download Waze and use it with Spotify, you'll get a mini landscape. The only annoying thing is when the ads pop up, you have to touch the Spotify icon again to get your mini landscape. Just sayin'.
Problem with Android auto is you can't see the album cover, can't quickly and easily add a song playing to a playlist. It's pathetic, once I'm married next year and don't need the playlist I'm building I'll be cancelling and moving straight to Amazon which provides a far better platform
