My Question or Issue

I am trying to create a simple Android app that can connect to Spotify to control music playback. From what I have read, the SpotifyAppRemote API is perfect for this. I am following the instructions in the quick start guide exactly. However, when I try to run the application, I get a message saying 

 

"message":"Explicit user authorization is required to use Spotify. The user has to complete the auth-flow to allow the app to use Spotify on their behalf"

 

From the guide, the ".showAuthView(true)" statement should make a window pop up and allow the user to log in and authorize the application. However, this window never pops up so the authentication never occurrs. 

 

Can someone please help me understand what is going on? I have followed every instruction on the quick start guide.

 

Thank you.
