Do you have a Galaxy Watch or Galaxy Gear?

 

There are people with the Gear S3 who in the other thread on this forum who've said the dots aren't there. It is for me with the Galaxy Watch.

This workaround was posted twice above, including this addition :).

Its a galaxy watch and everything is up to date.  On the phone music screen there is no 3 dots or the swipe up menu that the watch view has.  The track is always listed as Unknown too which is probably related to the issue.   The phone is a OnePlus3 running android 8

Also on a Galaxy Watch, and no 3 dots. Do you have the Spotify app installed on the watch?

It's not reliant on the Spotfy app.

 

The Samsung watch Music App detects which music related apps you have installed and can bet set to talk to any of them. I can't say why you don't have the dots. Do you have the latest Samsung updates installed? Google it maybe?

For instance I'm using it to control the BBC Sounds music app.

If you don't have the three dots downgrade the Spotify app for now. I posted links on the previous page. I prefer this as it's proper Spotify integration.

Got it to work now - had to restart both the phone and the watch.

Restarting the watch got the 3 dots and full functionality from the native music app, thanks!

Very annoying.  I can no longer recommend Spotify to friends until they fix this issue.

It's still not working for me. It only works if you install an older version of the Spotify Android app.

The last version that this worked with is 8.4.79.630 from 9th of November 2018 from 2.5 months ago :(. To make things worse Spotify have released several Android updates recently :-/

Everyone chase Spotify suport -> sup port@spotify.com (remove the space, for some reason it's a banned word :-/)
