My Question or Issue

I pause a song and the notification disappears in a minute or less. That's very annoying. I used Yandex.Music before Spotify and don't had that issue

Hey there @dailrus,


Thank you for your post.


When you say notification - do you mean the the board where you see what's playing?


You can always try with a clean reinstall to make sure there's no old cache files causing this.


Also - try with another internet connection to see if the issue persist.


If that doesn't do the trick - can you let us know which version of the app you have, and also provide us with a screen recording? This will help us understand more directly what's going on from your end.


We'll keep an eye out for your reply 🙂

Hi Jeremy,



I'm having a similar problem to the above and have attached a video so you can perhaps assist. Whenever I pause playback on Spotify, the player will vanish from my notification bar once 10 minutes have passed, meaning I can't resume play this way but instead have to navigate to and relaunch the app. If you look at the video you'll see I pause playback as my phone's clock shows 20:01; after skipping forward to 20:11, the player will automatically close and remove itself from the notification bar as a full 10 minutes have passed. Other podcast/music apps I have don't do this and the player will remain permanently active unless otherwise removed. It's Android 8.1.0 and Spotify v.


Are you aware if this is a bug that can be circumvented somehow? Or is this simply the way Spotify behaves on Android and nothing can be done about it?



Many thanks!

Hey @tbcam88


Thanks for reaching out about this and welcome to the Community 🙂


When you pause your music, it's expected that this notification will automatically disappear after several minutes of inactivity.
