My Question or Issue

Hi, bascially the subject title says everything. Only had this issue on this phone. Tried reinstalling and deleting data already. Picture or albumcover changes with the next song, so it keeps being one behind.

Hey @Fion13,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

We've tested this on our end using a Xiaomi device, but couldn't reproduce the issue. Can you please let us know if there's any particular pattern to this behavior or a way to reproduce it consistently (e.g. when switching from one playlist to another or when playing the first few tracks after you've opened the app)? Also, does the same happen when switching between podcast episodes?

 

Looking forward to your reply.

Hi, thank you for your answer and sorry for my late respond. I saw some people on reddit with the same issue, either on Android 12 or 13. 

 

When I open Spotify and play a song it shows the right picture in the notification. But the next song has the ine from the song before and so on. 

I'm not much of a podcast listener bit if i switch between different podcasts, the image switches, too.

Hey @Fion13,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

Could you share the Spotify version you're using and prepare a short screen recording of the issue?

 

Have you tested this with Android 13 on the same phone as well?

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!

 I'm facing the same issue. When I change the song, the album cover is of the previous song in the notification bar and on the lockscreen.

My device is mi 11t pro and I'm using android 12. I've attached a screenshot for example.

Hey @Lilyscarlett,

 

Thank you for your reply in this thread.

 

Could you please let us know if the app is always showing the album cover of the previous song or it's always the same one until you open it? 

 

It might be a good idea to check your MIU Settings - try looking for a setting that would let you change the way you see the player in the notification bar. 

 

We'd can also suggest to try clearing cached files on your device. Here are the steps on how to do that. This'll make sure that old files that might be causing issues with the app's performance are gone. 


If that doesn't do it for you, we'll also need to know your Spotify version. If you don't know how to check it - go to this FAQ.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

I have the same problem. The first song works fine but When I change the song, the album cover is the previous song on the notification bar and on the lock screen.
It doesn't work even clearing the cache and reinstalling

Hi there folks,

 

Thanks for the posts. 


Can you try logging in with a different Spotify account to test if it's happening on that one as well. You can create a free account for test purposes.

 

Keep us posted on how you get on with this.

Hi, sorry for not responding i kinda forgot about this, even tho the issue is still there.

So i treid another account and it actually kinda worked but also didnt. Sometimes the image changed with the song but sometimes only with every 2 songs. So a cover would last for 2 songs on the notification and then switch to the right one and so on.

 

 

 

Hey @Fion13

 

Thanks for getting back to us. 

 

Would you mind checking if the OS of your phone has any pending updates? 

 

On another note, does the issue persist while using a different internet connection? 

 

We'll be on the lookout.

the issue is still there with another account

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your replies.

 

Does any of you have a customer launcher installed on their device? Also, can you please check if the issue persists when playing on another device using Spotify Connect?

 

Keep us posted.
