Had the same issue with the control center (spotify tracks not showing, buttons greyed out) as well as with Spotify not showing on the lockscreen. 

Iphone se -> ios 11.0.3

Someone suggested deinstalling apple music app completely instead of just turning it off via the settings.

Voila...after a restart of my IPhone everything works fine. 

Hopefully this issue won‘t reappear.

Here's a screen capture video of what I'm talking about. This happened to me again this morning and it temporarily went away after I restarted my iPhone7. A few hours later, it was back. The issue did not occur for a few days once I installed iOS11.0.3, but returned once Spotify was updated. This issue is NOT caused by iOS updates, it is Spotify missing something every time they push out a new update for their app.

 

The annoying part is that this isn't just a bunch of users having a habit of using the control panel to change the song, it affects users who use their bluetooth headphones and car controls to change/pause/resume songs as well. With the control panel functions greyed out, we lose this ability as well. 

 

Please fix this!

 

I don't see why I need to keep restarting my phone multiple times every day just to use your app!

Hi, I've got exactly the same problem in my 6s. But also, after control center crash, I don't see sound level animation when chaning volume level with side buttons, sometimes there is no sound when calling somebody, no sound at all, no signals, no voice. Restart fixes it, but only for about one day. I thought it was spotify, but I looked into logs, and I saw that all aps that have something with music crash (YouTube, Twitter, Spotify...). I confirmed it when I caught moment when control center crashed. I woke up, checked if control center is ok - it was ok, then I opened twitter. It crashed, checked control center and it was also crashed. Then I checked logs, and I found twitter crash log from that moment. I've got in logs many instances of mediaserverd log - I think it is some iOS system deamon for controlling music. For me it looks like iOS problem, not spotify, but like I heard from Apple support: "nobody was reporting such a problem before". Allow your iPhone to send logs to apple and developers, maybe some day they will figure it out.

Hello! 

Did you have problems using spotify when you connected it to the car...before deleting the app, and restarting the phone?

I don’t think it’s just Spotify bc it does the same thing with the podcast app. I can’t pause and change the volume without going directly to the app

This isn’t just happening with Spotify for me—it’s happening with Podcasts as well. It’s happening exactly as you described.

Hi all, did you update to iOS 11.1? For me it solved these bugs - now it is 11th day since I didn't have crash.

Yeah, unfortunately on 11.1 I'm still having the same problems. Not worth writing because everyone above has described it exactly as I'm experiencing it.

 

After reading the thread it does seem like an Apple problem. I've been having other minor iOS issues that I never had any problems with before iOS 11. So frustrating that its been going on for so long.

Ok so this seems tedious but it’s worth not being pissed off by this situation. 

 

So I deleted the Music app, reset my network settings, reset my phone and then redownlaoded the Music app and now Spotify works perfect in my car and I can change songs using the keys in my steering wheel again like it used to before this update. 

 

Odd, but whatever works right?

 

Ill report back tomorrow if it starts acting up again

You must delete the Apple Music App and your problem will be solved.
