Hi all, my problem is that out of nowhere, the remote function on my Gear S3 smartwatch spotify app no longer works at all. The watch is connected to my Samsung S9 through bluetooth, and the remote worked perfectly fine up until last week when it simply stopped. Now all I get are error messages telling me to either open the app on my phone, or to connect via bluetooth; neither of those make sense, as the devices are already connected! The spotify Connect service seems to work fine between the devices; it's just the basic bluetooth remote that's faulty. When I attempt a remote connection, it DOES open the spotify app on my phone, but immediately afterwards I get the error messages. I can't find a trace of anyone else having this problem, so I'm stumped. I've tried reinstalling the apps on both devices, I've tried hard resetting the watch, I've even tried using a spotify test account. Same result every time, being nothing. Anyone have a clue what this gremlin is?
