Possible Bug: Queue Not Properly Working


Possible Bug: Queue Not Properly Working



Free/Premium Version 8.4.xx (was using 8.4.70 and just updated today to 8.4.71, still having same problem)




iPhone 7

Operating System

iOS 12


My Question or Issue

I have been using Spotify for awhile and have never had this issue. Whenever I play music and look at the queued up songs the correct song plays. However, when I try to move a song up or down in the queue, the song that was originally queued up plays next, and the album cover does not get updated when the song changes either. It does change when you click the actual song though, just doesn't show the correct one on the queue. 


For example while playing a song and with shuffle on:

Queued up: Song 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

My modified queue: Song 5, 1, 2, 3, 4

What Spotify actually plays:  Song 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.


It seems that Spotify does not recognize that a change in the queue has been made and thus defaults and plays the songs that were originally queued up. I'm not sure if anyone else has had this issue, but I would like to hopefully get some answers on this bug!

Same thing here. Updated to iOS 12 on iPhone 7, q won’t update properly. Edits move back or randomly, and songs can’t be removed.
