My Question or Issue


When you play something, then exit the Spotify app on the TV and re-open it, the Now Playing bar on the top left is missing, so the playback can't be resumed. Playing new songs or playlists works normally. My workaround to resume listening is to open the app on mobile, connect the app to the TV from there, and then I can resume play on the TV. Happens both on Samsung TV OS, and Android TV box (with Android 11).


Just to clarify that I have tried everything from reinstalling the app, logging out and in again etc., and the apps are up to date as well.
