Hi there I found a way around this if you want to keep the widget. Unistall spotify from app and then download previous version 8.5.16.192 from here......

 

https://spotify.en.uptodown.com/android/download/2092462

 

Then stop spotify from updating itself in the playstore, that version still has the widget.

Just dont forget to uncheck the auto update in the playstore by going to my apps and games clicking on spotify and then the 3 dots at the top right of the screen and unchecking it there.

I would still prefer the widget reinstated but [in the meantime?] I've finally found a use for my S8's Bixby button! Launch Spotify instead :)

Yeah ! Why did they get rid of the widget on the latest update ? This is absurdly stupid .

What's the point of a smartphone that you can configure to your liking if you can't have the active music/listening app available on the home screen? I now have to unnlock the phone and go into the Spotify app everytime I want to skip a track, pause it, whatever. Spotify doesn't even appear in the swipe-down bit at the top. Why? Why? Whyyyyyyyyyy?????
