(iOS) Opening Spotify stops audio playback from other apps

(iOS) Opening Spotify stops audio playback from other apps

This is only happening as of a recent update, but every time I open Spotify while playing audio in another app, Spotify stops that audio without me even pressing play on anything. Pretty aggressive. I use a number of other apps to listen to music (Nugs, Bandcamp, LivePhish, etc.). I'll sometimes pull up Spotify to brainstorm for my next song for whenever that time may come. What's the purpose of silencing the other apps? Most of the time this happens I just say nvm force close Spotify.

 

If this has already been posted, my bad. If you could kindly direct me to that thread so I can add to it.

Hey @Carlrmyers,

 

Thanks for the post.

 

We'd recommend running a clean reinstall of the app. Please follow the steps from this Spotify Guide exactly, as this will assure that all app data is cleared completely, before reinstalling. You should also make sure that the Spotify app is granted all Permissions from the phone's app settings.

 

Let us know if this makes a difference.

 

Cheers.

I can’t believe that actually worked.

this annoying problem appeared again. and the main solution doesn’t work for me because i have thousands of downloaded music in cache and via local files. redownloading it all would be a nightmare.

This fix doesn’t work. Get your “stuff” together, please. This app is going down the drain in a major way. Constant bugs and glitches, now it forcibly interrupts audio from other apps. And I pay for this??
