[bug] swiping Spotify from recent apps changes song

Casual Listener
As a free user on mobile, I accidentally swiped Spotify from my recent apps, stopping the music. When I went back into the app, I noticed that the song had switched to a new one and started in the middle instead of the beginning. Nothing bad happened, but I realized that exploiting this bug could sort of create unlimited skips for free users.

Does it happen all of the time?

Can you tell me why the Spotify App (Android) stops when I clear it from my Recent Apps? Is there a possibility to disable this? It really bugs me because I clear my Recent Apps a lot (all the recent apps at once) without thinking.

Don't forget you are opening recent and running apps. So in closing Spotify while it is playing you are ending the process. Generally speaking you should just let Android manage the running processes automatically.
