My Question or Issue

I have all the proper settings enabled, earlier I had problems with the status display itself (it used to not show up sometimes), now the problem has become that the album/music art is missing in the status and the album name is null. Bots are not able to display my status on chat. (See attachment)

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for staying with us.

 

Writing to confirm everything should work as expected if you make sure both Spotify and Discord are updated to the latest version before trying again.

 

Cheers!

I've been having the same problem. To be honest I thought it was because I was listening to Nirvana and they show a baby's **bleep** so I thought they like temporarily banned my album covers or something lol.

Discord: 60.3

Spotify: 8.6.0.830

I uninstalled the Spotify app and cleared the data and cache like as said. It didn't fix the issue.

I also experience this issue.

 

Note 10

Android: 11

Spotify version: 8.6.2.774

Discord version: 57.14

 

On top of not showing the cover art and showing either "null" for a plalist or random gibberish (spotify:randomnumbersandlettersthatiguessistheIDofthealbum) that later turns into null (sometimes not) the status sometimes doesn't show at all. 

 

For it to start showing again I have to:

  • Pause my song.
  • Kill Discord from recent apps.
  • Reopen Discord.
  • And THEN play music.

Only then does the status show. Its annoying as heck but never thought of reporting this as an issue as it was so small, but seeing this post I figured every vote counts.

 

It's odd since when I look at my friends status it often DOES show the cover art and album name (and sometimes cover art but null for the album)

Edit:

 

Asked my friend to give  me their app versions and stuff since they don't experience this bug.

 

Galaxy A20e

Discrod: 53.8

Spotify: 8.5.94.839

Android: 10

Hope this is useful.

I just started having this issue and, though no one else has mentioned it, since this has started happening others also are unable to listen along to what I'm playing over Discord. I thought it was important to mention this is also a potential linked issue.

The problem with the status is directly with the Discord app! I did some tests and the problem occurs after the update 57
