[Android] Spotify crashes when I attempt to share a song

Device

Pixel 2XL

Operating System

Android P

 

My Question or Issue

 I have attempted to use the "share" function in-song but Spotify crashes after approx 2 seconds. No share menu appears before crash. Has worked previously.

 

I have already:

Reinstalled the app

Cleared the com.spotify folder in file explorer

Restarted the phone

Ensured all permissions are ticked

 

Assistance required. Really annoying!

 

 

 

 

Hey everyone!

 

Thanks for all your reports.

 

This should now be fixed in the latest Android version. 

 

You can make sure that you're always on the latest update by enabling updates or perform a quick reinstall of your Android app by following these steps

 

Hope this helps.

I JUST UPGRADED TO PREMIUM AND SHARING STOPPED WORKING. IT EITHER REFRESHES THE SCREEN OR SPOTIFY CRASHES. *YES I AM SCREAMING. WHERE ARE THE HELP FAQS TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE?? I've searched the issue & this has come up over the past couple of years.

What's the deal. 

Someone please post the fix ASAP.

On Android S9
