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 😉
