My Question or Issue
Spotify would fail to launch when connected to Bluetooth in my car with android auto.
I would get a quick message about “in the car? Use the auto app”, then it would shut down.
I think the feature in Spotify called “Car View” was involved. This can be turned off in spotify settings
The SOLUTION was to turn off the Optimization of battery usage by Spotify on my android phone. Thankfully, this person had discovered this for me
For Android version 10 / this is under “Optimize Battery Usage” which I could only locate by doing a search in Settings
btw – Spotify support (which is just a chat … no real tech support) was of no help.
