When playing music using Spotify on iOS, my BT enabled hearing aids switch to "phone mode" because the phone is claiming them. That is fine, and that's how it works with all other apps that produce sound.
When streaming Spotify on any other device (with the same premium account), the iOS app sees this and instantly becomes a remote control. That's fine too, that's what Spotify Connect does. But the app is still claiming the hearing aids, as if it was playing the sound itself. The result is that I'm listening to my phone I, but it's not playing any music.
I could turn off bluetooth on my phone so the hearing aids cannot be claimed. But I would lose all control over them.
I could stop the Spotify app on my phone but then I would lose control over the headless Spotify instance.
Anyone knows a solution to this annoying problem?
The hearing aids are GN Resound LiNX. Latest version of all software.
