Wrong song showing on Notification Bar

Wrong song showing on Notification Bar





Google Pixel 4

Operating System

Android 11 / 12 


My Question or Issue

I've had this issue for 3 or 4 weeks, the song showing on the notification bar is different from the one playing (see screenshots).

I have to restart the app for the right song to show, then it happens again, the one on the notification bar is stuck (controls work though). 


Also, from time to time, the song Pauses unexpectedly.


I am using latest Spotify Update to date, and this was happening on Android 11 and now 12.

Hi @ojchavez2021,


Welcome to the Community and thank you for posting.


Can you check if toggling on/off "Background App Refresh" for Spotify in your phone's settings updates correctly the playback notification? Please make sure to restart your phone after changing any setting. 


If it doesn't do the trick, then we suggest you run a clean reinstall of the app, as this one is more thorough than a regular one and can be helpful to get rid of any cache that might be causing trouble.
