My Question or Issue

When playing a playing a playlist, the description of the playlist is displayed on the widget, which is really nice. How every the characters displayed are not fully loaded. For example the '/' back slash does not have a character and just displays the Unicode hex character instead of the actual character. So '/' is displayed as '&#x2F.' I attached some screenshots showing the bug.

Hey @DeadAccount307, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

We can try restarting the app, and also remove and add the widget again to see if that makes a difference. If not, then I'll pass this on to the right teams. This is a fairly new feature on iOS 14, and Spotify will be releasing future updates to make the experience even better. Make sure your automatic updates are turned on

 

Hope this helps.

I tried both of those and there was no change. I also do have automatic updates turned on. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for updates too. Thanks for responding!

Hey @DeadAccount307

 

Sounds like a plan. What I'll do for you is I will take a closer look at this on my end to see if there is something else I could suggest to make that go away. 

 

Stay tuned!
