Notification bar with controls and "running in background"

Notification bar with controls and "running in background"

Device

OnePlus 3

Operating System

Android 8.0.0 OxygenOS 5.0.4

 

My Question or Issue

Hey, so for about a month or so Spotify acts weirdly. It doesn't show the notification bar in the notifications nor on lockscreen with controls for the player. But when I turn on music it shows this notification "Spotify is running in background".

 

I know there have been some topics about that already, but solutions provided in those topics aren't working for me.

Hey @deniskr3, welcome to the Community!

 

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with this. We'll definitely be able to help.

 

When did this start happening? Did it start after an app or OS update? Also, if you haven't already given it a try, try a clean reinstall to see if it helps.

 

Let us know how it goes.

Hey, I don't really know if it start to happen after app or OS update. But clean reinstall helped and now it's back to normal. Thanks! 🙂
