[Android Auto] "Spotify doesn't seem to be working right now" error

Status: Fixed







OnePlus 6T

Operating System

Android 10


My Question or Issue

Longtime user never experienced any issue for years and years of enjoying great music and recommendations. I have Android Auto on the latest Seat Infotainment (2020) and been using Spotify with no issues since December. Suddenly last week I get the "Spotify doesn't seem to br working at thr moment" screen and I've tried every thing by now. Set battery to do not optimise. Reinstalled Spotify and Android Auto. Every other app, Maps, TuneIn and Pocket Casts work without any issues. Help! Can't listen to music anymore on my long commutes, or at least not for music I'm paying a subscription for! 



Hey folks,


Thanks for your patience while we looked into this issue.


We’re happy to say that this should now be fixed for everyone! Just make sure your app is updated to the latest version.


If you're still having trouble, make sure to post a new thread in the relevant help board here.




Same on my end, the issue is still not fixed. Had it happen today.


My Pixel 3 + Android 11 was working fine.

After I upgraded to Android 12 I began to get this message.

Tried all the fixes.  Eventually did a factory reset which unfortunately does not go back
to Android 11 but does clean everything else up (Spotify and AAuto)
Tried an Android 11 phone...it works fine.

Any suggestion other than going through the painful process of downgrading from 12 to 11?




Android 10 on OnePlus 6T 

The bug is NOT fixed at all.


I notice the issue shows up when Bluetooth is turned ON (not necessarily connected, just turned on).

If I connect my phone to Android Auto with Bluetooth turned OFF everything works fine.


So frustrating!



This is truly an issue way beyond the competence from Spotifys developers skills...


have same issue, any news from developers????
