Issue#721: Spotify appearing on lock screen? Proactive?

  • so I've noticed that more than once a day I will click the sleep\wai button on my iPhone and the lockscreen will appear but it's just jy background and in the white font where the time usually is when you wake the phone will be the word Spotify and the rewind and fast forward arrow and then a volume controller. This is even when I haven't used Spotify in awhile and when Spotify is closed on my phone. And happens even without headphones plugged in. It appears to be different than proActive...

  • Issue#93999: Lenovo - On screen caps lock not appearing E530

    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge (E530). Previously when I pressed the Caps Lock/Num Lock key, there was an onscreen indicator in the bottom right corner that showed these keys were on (and another indicator with the symbol crossed out when they were turned off). Quite randomly, the indicators have disappeared and I'm not sure why.  The buttons still work, but no indicator.The on screen indicators for the camera and microphone have disappeared as well, though volume and brightness still work and appear on screen. I've tried going to Screen resolution-->Advanced Settings>On-Screen Display and making sure they were enabled; as well as disabling and re-enabling them several times to no avail. I'm not sure what else to do..hopefully you all can help?I'm not too skilled with technology in terms of uninstalling drivers and the like, so if I have to do something complicated screenshots and detailed instructions would be really helpful! Thanks.

  • Issue#240337: Lock Screen Appearing in Settings but not on lock screen!

    Hey Everyone,I have a GPO set up to point to a certain image and use it as the lock screen for (right now) Windows 8.1 laptops. What's strange is the 8.1 settings menushows the lock screen as it shoudl be, but the actual lock screen is a light blue with nothing but the usual corner information. I've attached images of the policy (pointing to a UNC share that everyone already has access to), plus images of the settings and lock screen. It looks like others have seen solutions, but I can't pin down what the solve was.

    I am on version 5.1.0.1019 of Spotify on iOS version 9.2.1. I signed up for Spotiy premium just last Sunday and having searched through the community I can see I am not the first person to have this issue.Albums/playlists nothing play the next song unless I have spotify open on an unlocked screen.if the screen is on lock or I move to another app I have to go out and press next every time.I have tried all the recommended actions, logging out & back in. Deleting the app & reloading from the app store but no good.An issue that has been a problem for users for about 5 years and spotify still cannot sort this?Would appreciate some productive advice from a support team member or somebody who definitively resolved this problem.

    I seem to have lost my lock screen controls (play, pause etc) on my Huawei P7 Ascend phone running Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat). Spotify runs perfectly well except for this one little issue.

    @Rach wrote: Does anyone know how to get Spotify controls on the lock screen (like you get on an iphone) and also how to get the alarm to also come up on the lock screen so that when it goes off you don't have to swipe, open the clock app and turn off the alarm? I have looked on this forum, looked on Spotify's forum and googled. I've also been through all the menu options and searched help within my phone. I'd really appreciate some help. Love the ethics behind the FP2, hence why I bought it. Find android frustrating, always have, and need some tips. Cheers. Posts: 1 Participants: 1 Read full topic

  • Issue#490888: Spotify - Allow users to disable album art on lock screen

    This feature needs to be allowed to be disabled. This is a no-brainer. People shouldn't necessarily be required to have this active. Imagine how many people use your app at work, then imagine how many album covers are NSFW. I have been using this app for years now and cannot believe that you still do not give users the option. It's really kind of ridiculous.

  • Issue#524582: Spotify - Notification / Lock Screen Controls Dissapearing- Marshmallow

    Hi Spotify Crew, I've found similiar threads about this issue, but the suggested fixes haven't worked. The problem is that the ongoing notifcation is randomly dissapearing, which in turn removes it from the lock screen. Typically it will happen if the device is locked and there has be no music played for 15mins or so, but I've seen it dissapear when actively using the phone and not playing music for a couple of minutes as well. It's quite annoying when I'm out riding on the motorbike as I rely on the bluetooth controls to control the playback, which fail if the persistent notification is no longer present. After the icon has dissapeared, if I close / open the app it seems to continue working again To fix it I've tried: - disabling power saving- excluding spotify from Doze- making the Spotify notification a "priority"- removing the lock screen (so the screen just turns off) Google Play Music seems to be OK I'm running an LG G4 on Android 6.0

    Recently I have not been able to play, pause or skip my music from the lock screen even though I have the music playing in the app. This has happened a couple of times in the past and it would show up again randomly on my lock screen, but it hasn't for a while now and it's frustrating when I'm working out and I have to open a lock screen and go into the app to pause, play or skip the song. Kinda petty but didn't know if anyone else was experiencing the same issue. Thanks.

    So, I purchased my uncle's old computer, but he doesn't remember the and they through the box away.  I noticed that it would go to the black screen once powered and then the caps lock would flash 1 time and then pause for 3 secs and flash again at the 4th second.  I have removed the harddrive from the laptop and scanned the harddrive for viruses and checked to see if any problems.  He had viruses, but I cleaned those off and placed the harddrive back in the system.       I wanted to know if there is a chart or anything that I can go by to fix this issue?  I wanted to fix it up and donate to the student in Africa who is going to college.  I purchased my uncle's because he had received a new computer for a holiday (Father's Day) and it was nothing wrong with it, when I first talked to him and he got a new computer.  Help me please and thank you so much for the insight!

  • Issue#959765: Spotify - Problem with getting songs to play individual songs, lyrics stopped appearing, screen diss

    I'm having problems with lyrics showing for any songs. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Spotify and that didn't workThen I have a problem with songs under Your Music/Songs playing individually. I click the play button next to any song and it doesn't do anything except flash the speaker then immediatly back to the play buttom. Yet when I click the green play button at the top it will start playing from first song in the list and i can use the next button but that is very inconvenient for me. To fix this issue I have to open and close Spotify several time before it starts working again.I also have a problem with the Spotify desktop sceen going blank after being used for so long. What I mean by blank is that the side bar dissapears and the menu bar dissapears and all that shows is the gray background and the word Spotify at the top of the window. To fix this I close Spotify and reopen it and it goes back to normal.I'm using Windows Vista SP2 and have the free account and the most
