Spotify App on Android Extremely Buggy Since Update of Sept. 2018

Device

Samsung Galaxy S8

 

Operating System

Android 8.0.0

 

Since the last update I've had the following problems with the app:

- Songs stop playing at random

- The now-playing widget is gone

- I can no longer skip to the next song through the button on my headphones; I can stop a song, but not restart (this previously worked)

- The now playing screen does not update when a song changes, unless I minimize it and reopen it. 

- The now playing bar does not update when a song changes, unless I maximize it and reminimize it 

- I can no longer control the app remotely from the desktop version of the app (it shows that I'm using it on another device, but won't communicate with the device). 

 

I have already tried deleting and reinstalling the app. After I did that, it worked again for about half a day and then then reverted to being buggy.

I am having the same list of issues. Severly bothers me as this is my main source of enteraintment on my long commute.

Using a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with Android 8.1. 

So much for the partnership when it wont even work on the flagship phone it was paired with at reveal.

I have also experienced these types of problems. 

My spotify also goes into offline mode and says that i need internet to able to browse music online even when i have a very stable connection. This as also been going on for a long time.

Please fix these problems as soon as possible since its ruining the whole experience when listening to music.

Same list of problems on Galaxy Note 8 (Android 8.0).

At first, I thought it was a problem on my device, and get some better results by changing the Power Status of Spotify (giving it permission to use the maximum ammount of power it needs, without putting it on standby, but maybe it will drain my battery faster).  But some bugs are still happening, the widget is like gabarge, just using RAM for nothing...

That's very annoying. Please fixit asap!

Thanks in advance.

Same here, Note 9 on Verizon. Everything is up to date as of yesterday. The app isn't totally unsuable, but it's changed frfom a (mostly) polished exoerience to a buggy mess.

Me and my wife have the exact same problems. I have an S8 Plus and she has an S7 Edge. We both use spotify in our car and house.  Sometimes when i turn my car off, it starts playing on the phone speaker. Also on my Pioneer car stereo when playing spotify, the stereo shows the first song and artist info, but doesn't update after that. This never happened until the last little while. I've had this phone with spotify for a year. Very frustrating. Please fix it.
