My Question or Issue

The Spotify app window on macOS automatically hides after a certain amount of time. 

  1. Open Spotify
  2. Play a song
  3. Spotify window is shown and remains open (see first image)
  4. I move to another desktop space on macOS
  5. After a certain amount the spotify window automatically hides (see second image)
  6. I go back to the desktop space
  7. Open Spotify window again

While this isn't a major inconvenience, it is strange behavior. I have experienced it with multiple macOS and Spotify versions. Has anyone else experienced the same behavior and knows how to fix it?

Hi @Pretty_Bonobo,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Could you please provide us the following:

  • When did this start happening? Did it coincide with a Spotify or MacOS update?
  • Does it matter what activities you do on the other desktop space for this to occur? Does it still happen if you just switch and then do nothing else?
  • Have you been able to see the exact moment it happens? If so, what occurred exactly?
  • It's worth performing a full clean reinstall if you haven't thus far. This can help with a multitude of issues and it may solve this too. Let us know if it helps.

With this information, we’d be happy to investigate.

Keep us posted.
