[iOS] App crashes when I try to turn off car view in the settings

I am unable to turn off the option to "allow Car view to automatically turn on when Spotify connects to your car's Bluetooth" in the settings. My app crashes every time I attempt to turn off the default "Car view" in the settings of Spotify on my iPhone. I have an iPhone 6s. (iOS 13.4.1 and Spotify Version 8.5.55) I have tried clearing catch, offloading the app, deleting the app, and reinstalling to no avail.

Same problem as of today, using iPhone 7.

      Yesterday spotify stopped being able to google cast through Wi-Fi to google mini and had to fix it by  using the Bluetooth function 

Update - No longer having the car view mode issue, no longer crashing as of 5.8.20

I’m having the same problem with my iPhone XS Max. This happened following me not being able to open the app without it crashing yesterday (May 6).
Hey, guys! Thank you for reporting this. It is obviously a bug, and I can confirm it. Here is a question to you all though. Have you ever used a Car View or just trying to turn it off for the first time. As it seems to me it’s crashing on devices that never used Car View before.
I have used it before (briefly). I’ll connect to my car, and then when I go to my music that’s playing in car view, I’ll turn it off there and it’s fine. I just have to turn it off manually every time.

So, Spotify is not crashing for you? Because other users are reporting the app crash. 


When I go to Settings and then to “Car” to turn off car view permanently, it crashes every time. Attached is a picture of the specific setting that causes it.

Yes, this is happening for me too. Definitely a bug, as it didn't crash on previous version of the app.

Status changed to: Under investigation

This is happening to me too, and I want to turn off the default Car view setting because it is so annoying. I have an iPhone SE (1st generation) with iOS 13.4.1 and Spotify Version




I’m running latest Spotify version on latest iOS version, on an iPhone 11.
