It seems like a fairly recent update broke the reporting of currently playing track via AppleScript, when music is being played back using the Mac app, but from a different device - via Spotify Connect. It reports normally when music is played from the same device. It also doesn't happen for all devices: it reports normally for my phone, but doesn't for my room soundsystem (via raspberry pi + raspotify).
I did not see a "bug report" section, and decided to post here, if I should be redirected please let me know.
The version I'm using is 18.104.22.1683.g9f48828e, it broke around a week ago for me. Is it possible to downgrade in a case like this? All advice appreciated.
An example AppleScript snippet that was previously working fine, but now doesn't:
if application "Spotify" is running then tell application "Spotify" if player state is playing then return (get name of current track) else return "" end if end tell end if return ""
