Same problem, on my Galaxy Note 8, and I'm about done, Spotify needs to fix this and start being clear about what exactly is being affected when updating, no more "Just keep automatic updates on" BS. This needs to be addressed soon, or I'm moving on to a new service.
So far so good here also. Glad this has been fixed. Am not a big fan of pandora and I like how many services integrate with Spotify. All of my issues are fixed as far as I can tell since recieving the update about 28 minutes ago.
Re: Spotify App on Android Extremely Buggy Since Update of Sept. 2018
Well, it seems the Spotify team mess it around again... The app now has the same problems it had before, stop playing randomly, doesnt update the widget, doesnt send the right name to the audio system in my car... Come on guys, you don`t have**bleep** every time you launch a new update. Hope you fix it asap. Thanks!
Same issue with my Galaxy S9. I finally uninstalled all my apps on all my devices (Galaxy, iPad, my wife's iPhone and my Windows Surface Pro 2) and reinstalled each separately. Everything works fine until I try and use my Android app on my Galaxy phone. Music skips, stops playing, loses connection, and won't let me re-assume control with a different device. I finally just deleted the Android app and will only use my other devices until this gets fixed. Really annoying since it is my phone that is the most convenient.
