Hey there folks,


@brmdz we really appreciate adding this info! We've passed it along to our tech teams.


@Neoflare and @MDJ - thanks for that! Just to confirm, could you let us know the exact version of the app you're on? On an Android device, you can find this on Home > Settings> scroll to the bottom to About.


We'll be keeping an eye out for your replies, thanks!


I'm on

Same problem..

Casual Listener


And still the same problem, I've even deleted again and cleared everything and did a fresh install and downloading my saved songs again..


I dont understand how all of a sudden it just happened when it was working fine.


It's not that big of a deal, but to go from half screen album art, to small thumbnail floating at the top, to now having some white bar covering most the album art just sucks.


Same issue there too. I contacted Spotify for Android support and they gave me all the a.m. suggestions, but no success. I suppose they have to update again their app.


Hey folks,


Thanks for getting back to us with that info.


@brmdz - could you check to see if there's an update for your tablet's OS?

For those of you still experiencing this issue on Spotify version on Android, could you also confirm that you don't have any pending updates for your device's OS?

Thanks - keep us posted!


I'm on the last version of Android Nougat - 7.1.2


My tablet doesn’t have any software updates.

Hey there folks,


Thanks for getting back in touch with us @MDJ and @brmdz - we've passed this along to the right teams!


There's currently a newer version of the app available on Android devices. Could you let us know if the issue still persists for you after updating? If so, please add the exact version of Spotify you end up with as it's very useful for the teams looking into this.
