My Question or Issue

Yesterday I noticed that my phone was showing two notifications when I played spotify. The first was the normal notification that spotify was playing with information about the song. The second was a notification that I couldn't swipe away that said "Spotify is trying to play...". It persisted the entire time I was playing music on my phone and disappeared when I closed spotify. What's going on? How can I get rid of the notification?

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!

 

 

Make sure to perform a clean reinstall and that you're running the latest version of the app.

 

Thanks!

To get rid of that( spotify is trying to play) I had to unlinked the Google home mini. An the notification went away. Now I'll only listen to pandora on Google home mini.

We'll see how that plays out.

I have a pixel 2 with all updates, I did the clean install several times and I'm still getting this message. The Spotify app is up to date, of course. I could switch off completely my notifications but that's not a solution.
