If you don’t like how the latest Spotify update works, I’ve searched about the internet and found a method to upgrade down to version 0.9.7… and to also prevent automatic upgrades. This works for Windows.
Download the old version you wish to use. I found this to be a great source: linky
Install that version, and exit Spotify when it auto loads.
If you’re trying to install applications on Android via a store and experience getting stuck on the download process like I did .. try going into Settings->Apps, find the’ Google Play Store’, and clear data/clear cache.
