My Question or Issue

Starting this week, the app stopped auto rotating to landscape view on the current song page. On any other page, it works like normal and goes to landscape.

 

I have restarted my phone, reinstalled the app, and restarted again. No change.

 

Hey everyone, 

 

We really appreciate your reports on this.

 

We just wanted to let you know that the right folks have taken a look at this for you.

 

Right now, we're not able to provide an exact timeline for a fix, but we'd recommend always keeping your Spotify apps up-to- date to ensure you're on the latest and best version.

 

Thanks!

Last Spotify update with horizontal view 8.4.97.807. I've installed that version and it works fine. Screenshot_20190528_224821_com.spotify.music.jpg

It's an old version of Spotify, I was able to save the file. Just make sure to turn off the "Enable auto update" on the Play Store. I'll update if a latest update works but for now this should do. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-7n45BeqpHXBt8vxapfGXZYoKjpkAL-w/view?usp=drivesdk

Landscape mode seems to work as advertised if you change the settings to make "car view" always on.

Thanks sswilson. Enabling CarView does allow us to view the song in Land scape mode.

 

Eddgeez, I downloaded the link you shared but it didn't install. Should we delete our existing Spotify first?

 

Thanks peps!
