I've upgraded to Android 11 and I realised that Spotify now behaves differently in Android 11.
1. Removing Spotify from Recent Apps did not end the music session
2. Removing Spotify from Recent Apps also removes the music control notification from Quick Settings region (while the music is still playing)
3. No music control in lock screen This is a setting in Pixel 4 that I overlooked, skipping lock screen after face unlock removes the traditional lock screen.
Are these behaviours intended or is Spotify supposed to behave in a different way? My current Spotify experience on Android 11 is totally different from Android 10.
Edit: Reflected the correct issues, number 3 is a mistake on my part
