Anyone found a solution for this problem.
I'm having something similar happening on my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, Android 10).
Actually in my case it is even worse because I'm starting a WhatsApp call and Spotify is resuming playing over my call.
There is no way to stop Spotify unless I open the application details and click Force Stop.
I guess though that it is somehow related to the fact that the phone is connected over Bluetooth to my car but this does not happen to any other audio application (ie. TuneIn Radio).
This drove me nuts today to the point of starting to search online for solutions and alternative music applications...
Advice is very welcome.
