My Question or Issue
the podcasting experience on Spotify is horrifyingly bad. There's just way too many borderline idiotic issues to list, but here's the latest one I found:
Spotify does not sync the podcast time between Windows Desktop App and Android Phone App correctly. When listening to let's say 3 hour podcast on the Windows 10 App, then, after a while, continuing the listening on the Android Phone App, when you open the Windows Desktop App afterwards, it will not sync the time from the Android app, but instead uses much older, outdated time mark, sometimes hour or more back. Once you realize it, and quickly go to the Android Phone App to check the time mark you were at, that time mark is already gone and overriden by the outdated one from the Windows Desktop App.
So now you are forced to waste several minutes by frustrating playback timeline seeking back and forth to find where you ended listening the most recent time. This is all the more devastating given the fact that spotify app on Android constantly pre-buffers video parts when seeking, wreaking havoc to your mobile data plan, and the video can't be turned off.
I am so, so sad JRE is no longer on YouTube. YouTube never ever **bleep**ed up as essential things as this 😞
