My Question or Issue

I disabled the Spotify skill on Alexa as I had a problem with scrobbling (still not resolved) and since I reenabled and reconnected the skill, the "Play Spotify" and "Open  Spotify" voice commands have changed behavior.   They used to continue off where I last stopped Spotify but now the start at the begining of the playlist every time.  "Resume Spotify" does the right thing but it's annoying having to retrain myself after years of shouting "Alexa, Play Spotify".

 

Does anyone now if this was in a recent update or is something odd with mine?

 

TIA

Thanks for your reply but are Spotify not responsible for the app (skill) itself?  Alexa recognises the command correctly but the app does not, or has changed its meaning.

 

Regardless, I was just looking to see if anyone else experienced this change.  If I have to retrain myself 🙂 then I will.
