Mid July 2019 some update messed up the way you would be able to drive with the phone plugged into the charger where the Spotify app would keep the screen open so you could easily navigate through music. It even has the option to keep it with the new “car view” which I’ll also attach here. But now 40 seconds into a song the display dims then shortly after locks the screen. Pandora, YouTube, SoundCloud, Apple Music, Netflix all understand it only makes sense to keep the screen on especially while the charger is plugged in. Why this has changed with Spotify, who knows??? But it sucks.
