[Android][Connect] Widget Missing and Disappointed Extremely

I've been using Spotify for many years and to open my phone up and see that the widget that I've been using is just all the sudden missing is extremely disappointing. I use this all day long and don't have the option of just opening up the notifications setting as I keep my phone locked for security purposes. This new update has also disabled the music from just starting to play when I get into my car. Spending an extra 15 minutes when getting in the car to go to work thinking my brand new phone isn't working is not my idea of a good update. Please reconsider as all other music options have this feature and it would be enough to change to another service IMO.

Also, the time wasted trying to figure out what happened, while this apparently was by design. (And not even mentioned in the update notes in the Play Store, which always only says "We’re always making changes and improvements to Spotify. To make sure you don’t miss a thing, just keep your Updates turned on."  Well, I surely regret that now!)

 

One good thing came out of this: I only now read about this opt-out rather than opt-in for "This app features Nielsen’s audience measurement software which will allow you to contribute to market research, such as Nielsen’s Audio Measurement. If you don't want to participate, you can opt-out within the app settings." It's not like I can even find that setting though...

 

Wow.
