[BUG] Android Application not handling URIs properly.

Status: Fixed

Device: LG G3

 

Operating System Version: Android 5.0

 

Spotify Version: 4.7.0.878

 

Description: URI links are not handled by the Android application correctly. When clicking on a track URI link, Spotify opens but it does not play the track. If you go to the menu and click "Your Library" the track suddenly plays. Tracks should play immediately after pressing a URI link.

 

To reproduce:

  1. Try clicking this on your android device: spotify:track:4WeCgZY0E0j0hmObLIgdyB
  2. The track wont play, but if you go to the menu and press "Your Library" it will play.

Workaround: None

Awesome! 

We're setting this as "Fixed". Feel free to give us a shout if Spotify starts misbehaving again.

Keep on dancing 🙂

 Hi.

 

Now spotify fails to load at all. I had an ANR which I just reported.

It says "No Storage Area Found", despite having 2.63GB available on internal storage and 45.47GB available on the SD card.

I cleared the data and Spotify loads now, but the exact same problem as described in the original post persists.

This problem still occurs.

Why has this not been looked into?

Hey! 

 

Sorry for the late response.  

 

Is this still happening? If so, can you make sure you have given Spotify permission? Just  head to Settings > Apps > Spotify > Permissions > and give Spotify "Storage" permission to see if that works. Also, is Spotify still misbehaving if you try to open a track with the URI?

 

Keep us posted.

Hi. I think it was solved after an update. It is working now.
