My Question or Issue

When casting to a Google Home speaker, the lock screen playback controls/song info loses connection when the phone is in standby. Have to unlock the phone, and give it a few seconds to re-establish the connection, where the Spotify notification in the shade then catches up. It gets annoying when I want to quickly skip a song on the lock screen, but as it isn't in sync it does not work. Can this please be investigated? Thanks

Sorry for double post

Hi, it seems that too aggressive battery saving can cause this problem.

I have found settings to exclude Spotify from battery saving measurements.

(Sorry my android devices speak German)
