Step 1


Crash or stop playing when sharing track

I'm on Spotify version armV7 on a Pixel 2016 running Android 8.0.0 (security patch 5 October 2017). I'm not having the issue on my Nexus 7 tablet on the same version. So it seems device specific.

Here's a video Spotify share fail

Whichever way I try to share a track, when I click Share on the menu my song will stop playing, I will return to the playlist, artist page or close the app, stop playing and will be unable to share. This has been happening since 8 October (ish).

I've tried the troubleshooting steps but to no avail. It doesn't seem to matter what the track is or how I'm viewing it. 

Any help as to a fix or a nod that dev knows about this and might be able to fix would be great.

I too am having the same problem on the same phone/patch with the same Spotify version.


I am having the same issue on my Pixel. It's frustrating. I can share using any other app but not with Spotify. It must be a Spotify issue. 


It must be related to a app update before the security patch from October. I'm having this issue on my Nexus 6p for 2 weeks now .
