Previously playback would continue.

Seems that with a new update of the app it now works again!

Hey @user-removed, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

What do you mean by quitting the app?

Just minimizing it and letting the app in the background?

 

Keep me posted 🙂

No, I mean on iPhone, so double tapping the home button, and then swiping up.

Composer

Why would you do that in the first place?

Hey @user-removed,

 

Thanks for clarifying 🙂

 

Because the device you're using connect doesn't have a Spotify app itself it relies on the devices that use it as a device to output audio to for the audio source so in the moment you close Spotify it won't be able to play music on it's own.

 

Hope it clears that up.

This used to be different. Normally I could quit the app on my phone and music would continue on my receiver, the receiver is a dedicated device. That is the hole purpose of Spotify Connect.
