Spotify 'Get the best experience on Android 12... Allow Bluetooth' pop-up message troubles some, issue being looked into

Spotify is the leading music streaming service for millions of people around the world.

Spotify offers both free and premium accounts. The main difference is that free accounts cannot choose specific songs to listen to, and there are ads between songs.

The Spotify team sends constant updates to their app with changes, bug fixes or new features. However, a recent update brought an annoying problem.

Currently, some Spotify users are facing an issue where they constantly receive a ‘Get the best experience on Android 12… Allow Bluetooth’ pop-up (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

Spotify persistent ‘Get the best experience on Android 12, Allow Bluetooth’ prompt

According to multiple reports, the Spotify ‘Get the best experience on Android 12, Allow Bluetooth’ pop-up is frustrating some users.

Apparently, the app is constantly asking for Bluetooth activation. The pop up reportedly appears every time users minimize and re-enter the app, which is too much.


I keep getting a pop up that says “Get the best Spotify experience on Android 12…Allow Bluetooth”. I don’t necessarily see a reason to allow bluetooth since everything is working fine for me. The problem is, I click “maybe later” but it comes up every single time i open the app even if it was just minimized for a second. How do I disable this thing?

Even if Spotify users choose the ‘Maybe Later’ option, the pop up keeps constantly appearing. So, some suggest adding a ‘Don’t ask me again’ option to solve the problem.

The “Get the best Spotify experience in Android 12″ prompt must be removed. It appears every time I launch the app. Add a third choice: ” No thank you. Don’t ask me again”
“Allow Bluetooth” and “Maybe Later” aren’t actually choices. They are just excuses for your incessant requests for access.

Your popups, requests for information, auto-enabled features consistently detract from the user experience

Additionally, some users report experiencing the issue for at least a month.

Second this, been going on for a month or more? Absolute madness that there is no way to stop this pop up?

Spotify team already aware

The Spotify team is already aware of the issue in question and is working on resolving it. However, there are no details yet on an ETA for a definitive fix.
