I have to ask something. Your two stated goals with this update were to improve performance and enable faster development. Well, your update ruined performance (starting a track and seeking within a track takes up to ten seconds, reported by many within this thread) and you haven't been able to develop a fix in over a month. It seems that you haven't met your stated goals. And you've failed in both these things while also removing previous functionality.
Do we get an apology? Or an update? Or at the very least, a reversion to the old, mostly working Chromecast app?
Hi there, Pompa. Thanks for taking the time to listen to user feedback. While I do care about the UI issues with the new interface, the most important thing for me is the listening experience. Please work on a fix for the tremendous gaps between tracks. Gapless playback would be ideal. I listen to a lot of live albums, and the long gaps are quite jarring.
This is awful. Spotify doesn't update the current song correctly on my device, it takes longer to load, and the player is incredibly ugly. If I try to look at the current playing song on my Android, the TV will start flickering between the song playing on the TV and the default spotify screen and sometimes playback will stop working. It's terrible.
Same experience here... the new UI is a downgrade and Spotify often does not see my chromecast. I have to restart the app multiple times to get lucky... Please fix this soon as I'm already exploring competitive solutions, which seem to work way better than the new version of Spotify. Bring back the previous version!
