I’ve come across a problem that seems to have started after the last time I updated Spotify..
I have my Mac connected to an external monitor and the lid of the laptop is left closed. I have my studio monitors connected to the Mac also. I leave the Spotify application running in the background.
I used to be able to open up Spotify on my iPhone and start streaming music from my Mac without waking the screen while it’s in sleep and the audio came out of my studio monitors.
Since I’ve updated the desktop app, if my Mac goes to sleep it stops playback, it stays in the screensaver if I just leave it playing and won’t turn the screen off. When I put my Mac to sleep, the computer won’t show up as a Spotify connect device anymore on my phone and I can’t stream music unless I wake the computer again.. Even though the Spotify app is left running..
Can Anyone else replicate this issue or?
