My Question or Issue

 Since the latest update, I get the message in the notification bar "Connecting to spotify" (sorry, living in germany, hopefully I've translated correct) 

This is new for me. The app is closed, so why is such an active reminder there?

 

 

Spotify Version: 8.4.78.530

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for the info you've provided so far.

 

If you haven't already, we'd suggest trying the steps below: 

  1. Head here and click Remove all devices
  2. Go to your Spotify settings, scroll down to Storage and then clear the cache
  3. From the Android home screen, tap Settings > Apps
  4. Find Spotify in your list of apps, tap it and clear the cache and data. Then select Uninstall.
  5. Switch your device off and wait a couple minutes
  6. Switch your device back on
  7. Open the Google Play Store then search for and install the Spotify Music app

If you're still experiencing this issue after trying these steps, make sure to click the +VOTE button. Also, it'd be very helpful if you could let us know the following in a comment:

  • Spotify version you end up with, device and OS.
  • Some details on when this issue happens on your device.
  • Are you using any smartwatches with Spotify?
  • Are you or have you been connected to other devices through Bluetooth? Which ones?

We're also very intererested in which type of network connection you use. Does it happen with both WiFi and Mobile data connection? If only the latter, we recommend that you talk with your telco to see why only Spotify is being restricted. Whether they did or did not find any cause, please let us know. 

 

We'll pass this on to the right teams, thanks!

This has happened to me as well.

Is it anything to do with the new connection with Google Maps or with the existing connection with Waze?

My Question or Issue

 

I too am having this issue. Maybe it's a Pixel specific issue? I see you're using a P2XL. Same setup as you, just on the older Pixel. Only started today. Weird...

Just noticed it five minutes ago on my OP6 (so it's not only Pixel devices) running Pie (OB6). Weird...

Also started to get these notifications since the last update on my android phone. Every few seconds it will pop up with a "Connecting to Spotify" and a few seconds later it disappears. Its getting rather annoying as the app is not open or running. For example, I've had it pop up at least 20 times just typing this message ☹️

Same here, Galaxy S9+ stock Oreo. It popup every 5/10 seconds and disappear after a couple of seconds. App version 8.4.78.530. Fortunately seems it doesn't cause any particular battery drain.
