Playing music on other devices causes Android screen wake if the app is open

Plan

Premium

Country

New Zealand

Device

Xiaomi Mi Mix

Operating System

Android 8.0.0

 

My Question or Issue

If the Android Spotify app is open, and music is played on another device on the same Spotify account, the Android Spotify app will cause screenwakes at regular intervals.

This behavior may be undesirable;

1/ screenwakes cause increased battery consumption

2/ lockscreen controls may trigger while the mobile device is in a pocket

3/ visually distracting if the user's phone is in visual range

 

Would appreciate Spotify's thoughts on this

 

Cheers

Tim
