Try installing Spotify version 8.4.77.779 not the latest one from the Playstore

I found myself the apk of the old version.

Just tried in my car 2 minutes ago.

 

Working fine now !

 

So, Spotify must solve this in the future !

There's a common theme emerging here...

 

Do we know if anyone from Spotify has acknowledged that there's a problem; and have they passed it to the developers to fix?

Just a quick thanks for the suggestion to go back to an earlier version. Works a treat! Thanks again

Just to repeat what Marc has posted. Go to the other thread where the solution is provided. A simple install of an earlier version will immediately start doing what we are wanting - decent app doing what it is supposed to do!

if only Spotify would sort properly instead of users finding a solution!
