If I had to listen to on of these morons tell me "try a clean install" , "Restart your device " one more time I think I would have thrown up. I'm telling you people. Try the Mog service. So much better in every way. And no I don't work for them.
This crap is why I left Android. You developers focus on new features before fixing obvious production issues. IDK how your dev team works but I can assure you that this nonsense wouldn't fly with any team I've been on. I've waited months for this stupid bug (and others) which should be high priority to be fixed. This is the last straw. Good by Spotify. I'm switching to Rdio and I'll make sure to let everyone I know that you're service is lackluster at best. Rdio may not have every feature Spotify does but their app is solid and they don't drive on Facebook.
My general sentiment of Spotify and the company itself has changed dramatically over the past few months. Before this issue I would rave about the service. Now, I have a lukewarm attitude at best when someone asks me how much I like it. It's hard to be excited about it anymore when I'm being disrespected("Try it now, did the new version fix it?" -- Waste my time) and lied to("We've got our best guys working on it, promise!") about this "little" bug being fixed since June!!
