Spotify isn't currently a multitasking-supported app. Neither is Google Maps. But some other 3rd party apps, like Waze and Djay Pro, do have multitask side-by-side support and apparently you have to opt-out to even make it not work, which Spotify has clearly done here by adding the UIRequiresFullScreen=YES key to Info.plist file. Would love to see Spotify make this right ASAP.
yes ... just read this (2017): ‘ ... Right now we don't have any plans to support the iOS 9 Multitask Split-Screen feature. However I've flagged your request with the appropriate teams and they'll let us know if this changes. Thanks again and keep an eye here for any updates!‘
Re: Spotify Issues on iPad Pro multitask / split screen
@neohel That is a massive disappointment to hear, the multitasking aspect is a major selling point of the ipad pro, shame your devs dont want to be current as this evolved with even more functionality as an ios 11 feature as they increased capabilities of multitasking to three apps at a time, apple music can do it, i mean how convoluted can your app code be to be supported on virtually every platform but be unable to provide a few scalable views. fortunately apple music can do it ;)
I NEED this feature as a yoga teacher! Plans on one side, playlist on the other. I can follow along and see where I am with my timing: it will be used by everyone & anyone who wants to teach ANYTHING such as this efficiently! Think of all the many more subscribers you would gain. Now think of the subscribers you may lose, as iTunes & Pandora DOES work in split screen mode! I am so disappointed. Can you please code your app so it works? I currently have a family membership.
