[Mobile] Screen always on Option

When the Spotify app is in focus keep the screen on and prevent it from locking. Just like in PowerAmp, this should be an optional setting.

 

It's really annoying to have to unlock the phone to skip tracks, or see the name of the current song or artist, especially when driving.

Hey @osornios and everyone that voted for this idea. We also like this idea so we're marking it as "Good Idea"--if we have any updates around keeping the play/pause/skip buttons always on the screen of your mobile device we'll post here first. Thanks!

Until Spotify implements this feature, a semi-solution would be to enable Developer options and enable Stay awake while charging.

 

To enable Developer options, go to:

Settings > About phone > Build number and tap on the section 7 times.

 

After that you can go to:

Settings > Developer options > Stay awake > While charging

 

Another solution is to use an app if you'd like to have this feature while not charging as well, for example "Wakey", "Stay Alive! Keep screen awake", "Smart Screen On Off" from Google Play.

They should have to use the app to work there.

I have multiple music playing apps and they all seem to be run by social media experts. I want one music playing app built by music lovers. Constant new feautures are not what I need. I want to hit three buttons max and get my playlist playing in under a minute.

It seems like music apps are best a year after they are released.
