My Question or Issue
Often when I finish listening to a playlist, a new playlist will start automatically, however I cannot view this queue on my Android phone. The button is greyed out. I can still add songs to the queue. Yet, I can view the queue on my iPhone and Macbook. I don't see why it would be disabled on one OS but enabled on others.

Thanks for posting in the Community and welcome.
In this case, we'd recommend to reinstall the app in your Android phone to check if you notice any difference, By doing that the app can be up-to-date and you can make sure the cache is not leading to this inconvenience. You can find out the steps to do it here.
If that doesn't do the trick, just to confirm, is this happening just when you're listening to a radio or does it happen no matter what content you're playing? Is the queue appearing in your Android phone when playing your playlists?
Lastly, did you notice if this started to happen after a specific event, such as an OS update? If yes, please send us the details.
Keep us in the loop!
This is occurring on a brand new phone, so I have essentially reinstalled the app cleanly. It also happened on my old Android phone.
It does not always happen, if I'm listening to one of my own playlists or radio, then I can see the queue. It usually happens when the playlist finishes and then Spotify starts to play music related to the playlist.
I am not sure when it started, but it has been happening for quite some time, both on my current (new) phone and my older phone.
Hey there @uchechie,
Thanks for your reply.
We can confirm that this is expected behavior of the app. The Autoplay feature creates a Radio based on the music you were previously listening to. While the Autoplay Radio is active, the Shuffle, Repeat and Queue features are disabled on the mobile app, however, adding songs to the queue is still possible, like you pointed out.

How come the queue is only disabled on the android mobile app and not the iOS mobile app?
