My Question or Issue

Ever since the last update, I can no longer go into landscape mode while on the "now playing" screen. Everything was working fine until the update.

 

Example: I use to be able to have my phone sideways on my desk while listening. The album art and all of the normal "now playing" UI was in landscape mode. Now, after the update, it still stays in portrait mode. Everything else shifts like normal; just not the "now playing" screen.

Yeah, this was working fine for me until I did a factory reset of my phone last week, and now I'm getting the same problem.

 

I can see that this has been an issue since August. Is there still no official update on why this has happened, or when it will be fixed?

Can't wait for this to be fixed... At least the update allowed us to disable canvas. But why take away landscape?!

Rollback would suck too. Forcing Canvas on users without option to turn it
off was also terrible. Just give us landscape back! Can't be that hard
:(....

It**bleep**.  I'm about to cancel my subscription and just go with Amazon music.  There's landscape and lyrics.  There's nothing more annoying than driving and Spotify is sideways.

This is very frustrating for me (and, if I'm honest, dangerous) because the only way I can dock my phone in my car is in landscape... And now I can't easily control the songs since it's hard to quickly read them given that Now Playing is always in portrait. Really bugs the f outta me.

OK guys, today we got the answer : Spotify presented their new gadget, the Car Thing, a hardware product designed to use Spotify in a car! So in fact they did want to break the landscape function so they can sell their duking hardware for stupid customers. Hmmm... Ok bye Spotify, as said by another user, I tried Amazon music and guess what? It has a Perfect landscape mode.
