Device

Iphone XS Max

Operating System

Issue:

Any time i pause my music and then press the RHS button on my Iphone and the screen turns off the music starts playing again. This happens everytime unless i have a bluetooth headset connected. 

 

Repro:

1. Pause Music

2. Press RHS Off Button on Iphone

3. Music starts playing again. 

 

Can only stop process by closing spotify app fully. 

 

Any help on this would be appreciated. 

 

Just updating this to say it’s been over a week and no community manager has even attempted to follow up on this...

This happens to me too all of a sudden within the last month or so. I listen on my phone and on my work computer. When I step out of my truck after turning it off, it'll light up my phone screen and pause the music then when i lock my phone screen the music will start playing again. And sometimes it won't recognize that I'm in my vehicle and play through my work computer as well. Hope someone with Spotify can reply or fix this one quickly

I just started getting the same issue. I hope this gets fixed soon, it’s getting annoying.

I was going nuts all weekend thinking that somehow I was causing accidental touch inputs. Then while at my desk this morning when locking my iPhone X music started playing. As a product designer that has to QA the living **bleep** out of what my developers build this is a seriously edge case weird bug. I'm not even sure how they got this to happen, but as the joke goes "it's a feature." A very annoying "feature."

Same problem here.  I have to kill the app to break this loop of insanity.

Being in the mobile design and QA world friends and I did some further digging. Fortunatley, he had an X that hadn't been updated to 12.2 yet, but had the same version of the Spotify app (latest) as me. He couldn't replicate and called shenanigans on me until realize he wasn't on 12.2. Updated and sure enough he experienced the same thing we all are. Now the question is what changed in iOS 12.2 that's causing this and is it something that's a bug in iOS or Spotify's app. We're leaning towards something in iOS is the cause.

Can also second this. Is extremely annoying. The only way I can have my phone locked/put it to sleep without music playing is if I close the whole Spotify app. With the app open, and music stopped, I can’t lock my phone or put it to sleep without music playing everytime I press the power button.

The power button is acting as a play button but not a stop button. You can’t stop the music with it, it only starts playing when you press it. Which as you can imagine is very annoying as obviously that power button is used a lot more than the play button.

 

iPhone X 64GB

iOS 12.1.4

Spotify 8.5.1.1085

 

Happens regardless what I do/change if the app is open.
