What's new in this version:

  • Fixed: Some troublesome Facebook login issues.
  • Fixed: A bug that could cause a white screen just when you least expected it.
  • Improved: Radio performance.
  • Fictitious (or is it?): This app can be controlled using telepathy.

 

Notes:

As always, if you're having trouble with an update, please always make sure to go through the [Android] Troubleshooting Spotify steps before posting

Wondered hen you would post this 🙂

Just a note, you need to expand the notification to see full controls 😉

Always great to see when Spotify has a new update and its not related to language localization 😛

By any chance can you be a more specific on how the radio was improved? Thank you.

Shuffle and repeat bug isn't fixed 😞

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.

 

By the way, my device is the EVO 4G LTE.

Improved: Radio performance.

Does this mean that radio now doesn't play same artist over and over, over and over and over and over again??? If, good. Otherwise nooooo!

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 😉

I hate to seem ungrateful but, considering that the notification only works with Jellybean, I'm a little sad that Google's design guidelines weren't followed. 

 

"...in conjunction with "swipe-to-dismiss", helps users to streamline their notification triaging experience." but we can't swipe, we have a close button instead.

 

"You can specify a maximum of three actions..." so the incongruous close button takes the place of a 'back' button. Good job that telepathy control is included 🙂

With my Samsung Galaxy S GT-i9000, with stock (but uncluttered) 2.3.5 rom, the blank screen/white screen went back after less than 24 hours of use.

 

0.5.12.52 version works fine, meaning fine with acknowledging the regular lag when searching or playing music.
