Hey folks,

 

We appreciate your patience while we looked into this.

 

We've heard back from the relevant teams and they've confirmed for us that this is currently the expected behaviour of the app.

 

If you would like to suggest a change to this behaviour, we encourage you to submit a new idea for it in the Idea Exchange.

 

More info on how the Idea Exchange works and how your feedback reaches Spotify can be found here.

 

Cheers!

Same for me. That's a nope on reinstalling everything and syncing 1000+ songs to my poor phone SD card, and losing my sanity entering my Spotify creds into the xbox with a controller. I think I'll go get infuriated by Spotify Connect on my Hifi receiver for a bit.

This makes it impossible to listen while gaming by the way, as there's no way to turn the music down to background level without turning the game down.

 

Finally... Off topic. But why is xbox Spotify so muffled/boxy and bass heavy compared to, for example Chromecast through the same amp/speakers. Yes I've selected uncompressed PCM.

This is not how it is supposed to work.  The music volume can no longer be controlled by either the phone app or on the pc. The music volume cannot be controlled separately via the XSX|X Spotify app either.

 

Read the problem before saying this is how it works.
