[Android] Close Button Disappeared from Notif Panel

Status: Not An Issue
Close Button disappeared on notification panel. Now I can't close the app entirely.

When I try alternative closing option which is closing app from app drawer it's not working. Only disappering on app drawer music continuing to play.

Please fix this.

Hey guys!

 

Thanks for sending that info over. 

 

This is due to the new design on Android now playing widget on lock screen. To close the app, you need to pause (if you are playing) and swipe the widget off the screen.

 

We really appreciate your feedback regarding this update. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to write us back.

 

All the best,

Hey @Bulutbeyaz,

 

We haven't heard from your quite yet. Are you still experiencing the same issue?

 

If so, could you let us know the Spotify and Android version you're using? Also, have you checked the resintallation steps @Melody suggested? It'd be worth giving them a try.

 

Keep us posted,

Bulutbeyaz
