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,

 

Seems like this is fixed now.

 

If this still happens to you, please create a thread in the Help Boards.

 

Thank you, have a nice day!

Same problem here, notification keeps popping up every 15-60 seconds or so even after force closing app. I tried this as a temporary workaround and it seemed to work. Long press on Spotify app icon -> App info -> Notifications -> turn Uncategorized off. But could be a coincidence in timing as well. Didn't dwell deeper. Turning off all notifications in the same view should do the trick in any case.

Hello!

 

It seems that some users are getting the Connecting to Spotify notification, even when not using Spotify. We'd like to investigate further so if you haven't yet, please hit +VOTE and send over the following:

 

  • Device model
  • OS version
  • Spotify version

If you could send over a screenshot of the notification you are getting, that'd be very helpful.

 

Let us know what you can find. Looking forward to your reply.

 

Thanks!

Same issue. The app is also showing up in the recently opened apps screen within settings, despite never opening it. I tried screenshots, but kept receiving an error message when posting.
