Re: [Android 4.4] Spotify doesnt load images

Yet again the Android OS is not recieveing the appropriate level of develoment. 

 

This is surely an easy fix as all the other players on the market work fine.

 

Goodbye Spotify, hello Google Music.

Hi Dave, our best Android developers are working on it at the moment. We don't have an ETA though, I'm afraid /A

Do you know what the ironic thing is, and shows up how incomptent Spotify as a whole is? 

 

The Soundrop app for Android shows the album art on KitKat just fine, despite the fact it piggybacks on Spotify as the music player. Soundrop is a FREE APP. Yet their developers can make something that works. Spotify Charges £9.99 PER MONTH (THAT'S £120 PER YEAR), for an app that is simply EMBARRASSING!

 

Did you read that, Spotify Moderators? EMBARRASSING!

 

You seriously need to pull your act together!

I never thought I'd be the type of person to stop using a service for something as silly as missing album art, but it really is irritating.

 

Goodbye Spotify, I've transferred to Google Play Music, as you have failed to recover the missing album art and for some reason revoked the ability to view my collection.

I also have the same problem. I am running KitKat with ART. One good thing is that the Lockscreen widget is working on 4.4

Hi folks, if you're specifically experiencing the issue that images don't show in Spotify, on a Android device with KitKat (4.4), you can try the attached file.

 

NB:

  • This should be a fix, but use at your own risk. If you'd rather wait for an update in the Play Store, that's your choice
  • It's a test-build that we made just to see if it resolves this issue
  • Please reply to let us know if this is better, or not, and if not, why
  • If the .apk won't install, try removing the existing Spotify version
  • Please don't host this file anywhere else
  • Please try to refrain from sharing this link with the world
  • Credit goes to the fine Android development and QA folks who got this sorted. I'm just the messenger :)

File

 

Since we've rolled out an official, new version I've removed the download from here.
