Bug: switch playback from ios to macos, turn off ios headphones, macos stops playing

Premium plan in USA, iPhone 8 running iOS 12.4 and Spotify 8.5.17.713, macOS 10.14.5 with Spotify 1.1.4.197.g92d52c4f.

 

Steps:

1. Play music in Spotify on iOS while using Bluetooth headphones

2. In Spotify on macOS use the "Connect to a device" control to switch to macOS

3. Turn off Bluetooth headphones

 

Actual result:

Music switches from playing on iOS to playing on macOS as expected, but when the headphones on the iOS device are then turned off, the music stops playing.

 

Expected result:

Once playback has transferred to the desktop, turning off the iOS headphones does not impact playback.

Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

 

I'd also recommend updatin to macOS 10.14.6 :)

I just tested on my end and I can't reproduce it. After I change the playback from my iPhone to the Mac while my headphones are still on it just takes a couple of seconds before the headphones don't output sound and output is fully switched to macOS.

Then I turned my headphones off normally and music continued playing in macOS.

 

Let me know how that goes.
