After the new version installed, I'm no longer able to use Spotify in the background and Google navigation in the foreground.
I use Google Navigation very frequently, and previously, I would turn on Spotify, then load up Google Navigation to get me to my location with Spotify playing my music in the background. I've done this many times with no issues, even on multi-hour road trips. With the latest version (installed yesterday), after Google Navigation starts up in the foreground, Spotify turns off in the background after 10-20 seconds. It just stops playing.
Where can I download the previous version (where landscape was introduced), as the new version (which of course, I'm paying for) is unusable for me with that aforementioned bug?
Also, and possibly unrelated, why does Spotify stay in the notification area, even after you close out Spotify? Is that a bug, or is that done by design? I would think that when you closed out Spotify, it should disappear for the notification area also.
New: Now you can control playback from the notification area. Skip and be happy. Android version 4.1 and above.
There is no need to use skip, if you listen my hand-picked handzup playlist. Also I use Android 2.3.6 and there is only cover image now in this view, however I can pause, skip and change volume from my bluetooth headphones 😉
When I updated to this release, I've noticed that music will stop playing at random. At first I thought spotify was having trouble between tracks, but I have noticed that it stops in the middle of songs as well.
When these errors occur, it doesn't matter if I'm using the phone or not. I'm not able to trigger it with any sort of action.
After the song stops, I go into spotify from either the notification bar or the app icon itself. The screen goes black, then pops up with a song and album picture. Sometimes the song is one I listened to a few tracks ago, sometimes it's from a completely different playlist or radio station that I was listening to previously.
When i updated to this version of spotify music keeps stopping right away when i go to some app. This happens with all my apps in my phone. I can only listen spotify when im in the spotify app. And few friends say they have the same problem. We all are using galaxy s3.
Seriously its not fun to use this version. Playback stops like every song. Especially when I do something else on my device, and with something I mean anything! If Spotify is not in the foreground it just stops playing!
Please fix this bug or give us the last release back! It drives me crazy when I cant listen to music in the morning.
