Reinstall did not work for me. The spotify app is no longer telling the phone that it is in use so it goes to sleep. I wired a charger under my dash for this very reason. This is a hassle while driving and I can't just swipe the screen without looking as I normally do to skip.
@Guido This is clearly a defect introduced in a recent upgrade, you have enough users telling you what the problem is, at least acknowledge it and tell us you're working on a fix? To mt this defect is a showstopper and if not addressed I will likely cancel and switch to Apple Music.
