[Android Auto] Browse -> No Items displayed

Suddenly yesterday my phone which was connected to Android Auto stopped showing any music collections if your start Android Auto -> Browse -> Choose any category like Pop/Rock... -> Displays only text "No Items". My other phone connected to Android Auto works normally.


The phone displaying "No items" is running Spotify version and the one working normally version Both are running the same Android Auto version so it seems to be a Spotify issue. All settings in Spotify are the same on both phones. Any ideas?



Samsung Note 8+

Operating System

Same problem. Google pixel 2. Very frustrating. It's not an odd scenario, how can it pass QA?
