Redmi Note /
Android 9, with MIUI Global 10.3.12
My Question or Issue
I have crated and experimented with several of the spotify codes for specific song and none of them seem to work properly. They play a random song from the same album as the song in the code. I don't know if this is device specific or if it is in android because I tried the code in an iPad (with the same account) and it worked fine, it opened the correct song, I also tried it on a iPhone 6 and it also work perfecly, I don't own another android device so I can't test it there.
EDIT: I checked on another android device and in a newer iPhone and as expected in the android didn't work but in iOS did. Maybe is a android bug or somenthing.
Same problem here with RN7, MIUI11 Android 10.
It's pretty frustrating because I'm not sure if it will work properly when I send someone a code
Thanks for getting in touch with us. This sounds odd and we'll do our best to help you out.
We'd suggest you start off by restarting the device. Then you can log out and log back in to the account.
If that doesn't do the trick, it's a good idea to check these steps and run a clean reinstall. That way you can make sure the app is up-to-date and the cache is not causing this issue.
@aetreia You can also try with another device. By doing that we can see if it's a device-related issue.
Keep us in the loop! If you have questions, we are here for you.
I'm having the same issue. Works fine on iPhone or computer (code automatically plays single song) but when I scan with my Galaxy (Android) it pulls up the WHOLE album instead of the one song the code is for.
I have done a clean install as well.
Thanks for posting on the Community and welcome.
Just to confirm, does the expected song play when Spotify opens the code (despite you can see the album), or the first song of the album? Moreover, let us know if this happens when scanning other codes (songs).
We'll be waiting for your reply.
November 2022, same problem here on two different Android phones... Is there a FIX to this problem yet?
Thanks for posting in the Community.
This issue was indeed fixed some time ago.
In order for us to reopen the investigation, could you share the brand/model of the phones together with the Spotify app version and Android version installed on the devices? Which code doesn't work on your end? You can post it here so we can have a look at it as well.
Keep us posted,
I am also having the same issue. I have tried it with my Samsung s21 and my samsung s9. The song and album will show up and it will play a different song. This happens with every song I try.
Thank you for your reply in this thread.
In this case, we'd like to gather as much info as possible. Would you mind letting us know what troubleshooting you've tried so far? This'll help us avoid repeating steps. In addition, as mentioned before, we'd need a bit more details in order to investigate this further. Could you please check @Dian's reply and provide the info that he requested?
We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
