I have a question regarding Spotify connect. Why does it work only when the device you are connecting to is plugged in (or not locked)?
The problem is that when I connect to a device and it is unlocked, I can pause and play a song just fine, but when the device locks, the controls work only as long as the music is constanty playing. When I pause the playback and the device is locked, it immediately disconnects and becomes unavailable for listening on. When the device has a charger connected though, this does not happen and I can connect to it and pause and play even though it is locked.
I have read in other thread that this was done by design, and that Spotify "fixed" it by making the connection possible when the charger is plugged in. I wonder why though? Why not make it possible even without the device being charged?
If anyone has any info about this, or does know a workaround to make pause and play through Spotify connect possible even with the device locked and not charging, I would be glad if you could help me make it happen. Thanx!
By the way, I tested this on many phones, PCs and routers and it was the same with every one of these, so it does really seem to be an issue with the Spotify app itself.
