My Question or Issue

 Ever since I've upgraded to iOS 12, I've noticed a very annoying bug.  It used to be in iOS 11 or before that I'd be able to leave Spotify, use other apps or do other things for awhile, and come back to Spotify later and pick up where I left off in a playlist, complete with remembering shuffle and repeat settings.

 

Now, when I come back to Spotify, half the time I find that where I was and what song I was playing before leaving the app is forgotten, the playlist isn't active anymore, and Shuffle/Repeat are completely reset to be off.  This is extremely annoying and has gotten to be constant over the last month or so.  Incredibly frustrating when in the middle of a long playlist as well without shuffle.

 

Is this something to do with iOS's updates to the OS itself, or did something break about the same time iOS 12 came out?

Hi!

I have also this same problem and **bleep**, this is so annoying. For example I use to listen something when going to bed and in the morning, when I go to work, I’d like to continue listening from where I was last night. Basically this never works, as Spotify has forgotten that I had never listened to anything. And to be super clear, this means I can’t start playing any music with iOS’ control center buttons, or my car’s controls via bluetooth, or headphone controls, and so I’m forced to take my phone from my pocket.

 

And yes, I have tried soft reset and deleting the Spotify app/installing it again (and losing all the offline stuff). No help from these, so it seems quite clear, that there’s a bug to be smashed.

Same issue here. I had it happen occasionally in iOS 11 as well, but it's gotten worse since iOS 12 came out.

 

Today I had the iOS app forget what I was listening to after closing it for just a couple hours.

Just wanted to report that I just upgraded to a new phone, fresh install of Spotify app and everything, and this is still happening. It's definitely a bug in the app.
