It happens to me often when my airpods and apple watch are connected but it also happens when both of my accessories aren’t connected, not frequent though.

I have the same probleme with the lockscreen controls. It s'on "play" but it's not playing.. every time i take my phone out of my pocket, the play/pause bubble is present. Even if i close spotify in the multitask, it stays.. The only way to close it, is to open the apple music app, play it, ant then close it on the multitask..

 

THIS IS ANOYING

 

I'm on iPhone XS, IOS12.3.1 and the latest Spotify version (automatic appstore upddates) I've tryed to delete spotify and reinstaled it.. nothing change..

Hello! I have the same problem! 

For example: when i’m listening via bluetooth in my car, turn off the ignition (so that the car radio shuts down)  my iPhone XS Max still thinks it‘s playing music.. It shows me the „pause“ button, then i have to double tap on pause, so that it‘s really paused... (if i do not so, my alarm clock and other system sounds wouldn’t work)

Same issue testet with my jbl bluetooth speaker (charge 2+)! it happens very often, when it get‘s connected with a device, it won‘t start playing music automaticaly (car radio).

I‘ve already deleted my app and cache and reinstalled it, no improvements!

iPhone XS Max iOS 12.3.1

Spotify 8.5.7.601

Hi, 

I also have this same problem. It is very frustrating because when I try to play media on my phone from other apps (Youtube, Facebook etc) it pauses that almost immediately. If I close spotify and go back to what I was trying to do it works fine. 

 

My lock screen shows that Spotify is still playing but the time bar stays at the same spot. 

 

iOS version: 12.3.1

Spotify Version: 8.5.14.816

This is not solved. It has been an issue and I assumed it would be fixed in an update, but still nothing. Please let us know when you guys decide to do something.

This is still happening for me as well. It's not usually an issue but today I don't think my alarm went off because of this issue, as Spotify was still "playing" when I woke up. 

 

  • The devices this is happening to and their OS version: iPhone X, 12.3.1
  • The version of the Spotify app: 8.5.15.681
  • Are you using any Bluetooth connect headphones when this happens? Yep, was last listening via AirPods

I see this as well somewhat frequently. The situation I'll see is:

1. I'll hit play from the lock screen

2. The play icon will briefly change to pause (as if it were playing) then will immediately change back to play (as if it weren't playing). Audio will not start.

3. If I try to hit play again at this point, it will always act like it's playing audio (the play/pause icon will change to pause), but no audio will play.

4. At this point I can unlock my phone, go to Spotify, and Spotify itself will report that the song is playing and the time indicator will even move (but no audio is playing). If I hit pause, the time indicator will move back to the actual position in the file where audio was last playing. At this point, hitting play from within the Spotify app works.

 

Device: iPhone X Pro (but I'm pretty sure I saw this on my old iPhone 7)

OS: iOS 13.3 (but I'm pretty sure I've been seeing this since iOS 12.x)

Spotify version: 8.5.34.644 (but has been happening for a few months)

Audio is playing through AirPods (but I think I've seen this without AirPods)

 

I'll update this if I can figure out any more patterns.

Update: this definitely happens when just playing through my phone's speakers and when no Bluetooth/AirPods are involved. It's happened a few times to me already today.
