Issue still exists on Win 1803.

2018-05-05_22-17-06.pngI'm almost sure all of us are using the Windows Store version, right?

It happened on 1709 and now 1803, too. Spotify UWP team, yo--what's up? :(

Not me, I'm using the Desktop Version. Microsoft will have to pry my
Desktop Apps from my cold dead hands before I'll use a windows store
version of something.

Ah, **bleep**, you're right. Same here:

Alas. I chatted with Spotify Support and after 45 minutes of unsuccessful troubleshooting, they decided to move it to the "Escalations Team", who supposedly are to email me in the coming days.

 

I'll update if anything happens. Otherwise, I think we're just going to wait it out until Spotify dogfoods its applications enough to acknowledge this bug.

An update from the "Escalations Team":

 

 

So...fingers crossed this lands in the next update.

Shrug. All that means is that they verified the bug and it's now been
actually entered as a bug for development to look at. Hopefully they have a
good product manager that will prioritize it in the next sprint so we get
the fix semi soon.

Sure--I'll take whatever progress and communication we can get, though. It's been going on weeks now...


Let's see if it's a "quick fix" or "it's been six years--why does this bug still exist?" situations.

 

Dual Monitor Spotify icon on wrong Monitor

Hello all,

I have noticed that when I have spotify open and move the window to my secondary monitor, the icon in the taskbar stays on the primary monitor's tasbar. This is not what I have set my taskbar to.

 

Windows 10 Version 1803

Spotify 1.0.80.474.gef6b503e

 

Anybody know a fix? Thanks!

Same here. I'd also just like to make it clear that (I think we all, tell me if not) chose the Windows taskbar setting to only show the icons for windows on the monitor that they are active.

(Hardware acceleration -> off) This worked for me, but I hope that Spotify provides an actual fix. Thanks anyway!
