I got a reply from Volvo Sweden again today after asking for an update.

Swedish: 

Hej igen Jack,

Det visade sig att hitta en lösning för Spotify var lättare sagt än gjort.

Störningen pågår dessvärre fortfarande och våra tekniker arbetar på att ta fram en lösning.

Dessvärre har jag inte fått någon information om när lösningen beräknar släppas.

 

English:
Hi again Jack,

It turned out that finding a solution for Spotify was easier said than done. Unfortunately, the disturbance is still ongoing and our technicians are working on developing a solution.

Unfortunately, I have not received any information about when the issue will be resolved.

Its strange that they cannot upload the latest working version of the app and focus on testing the new one. It would be satisfying for everyone.

Strange ... Spotify app update loaded correctly on my XC90 (2017 modelyear, Netherlands) after the first report of a fix (see earlier in this forum) and continues to work properly. You’d assume that would be a global solution or at leadt fir all XC90 sensus.

Have those with the 'spinning disc', and accessing the internet via Bluetooth on their phone, tried logging in when you have the Spotify app on you phone active and playing a track? When working properly you should see Volvo as one of the 'Devices Available.

 

Maybe coincidence, but I had the spinning disc for a while until I did this.

I think when you do that the car isn't using the built-in app but just streaming the audio from your phone. When you activate the Spotify-app in the car you will see the track information but it won't be possible to access your library etc.

But I AM accessing the Volvo built-in app.  I have logged in, clicked on the app, and that is what I get. (You should be able to access your library anyway, as you have linked your accounts. I could do this pre-and post the last update).

 

BTW, Spotify can only run on one device per account/Login. So if you start it in the car, it will stop playing at home.  I am not entirely sure if this was the case before the update. You need a paid-for account as well, of course.

 

Some people on the Volvo forum seem to have had sucess overcoming the spnning disc by logging in with another user on a family account.  I wonder if it is a **bleep**-up in the policing the one-device-per-user aspect that is causing problems?

Its not that simple for me. After I uninstalled the app it’s still missing at the “new apps” section of “online updates”. I’m checking it every day / every two days.

I'm the same, I have contacted Volvo support UK again and I still haven't had a satisfactory resolution.
