By now, you’ve probably heard the news that Apple has removed the ability to pause or skip tracks in music apps.
Now, some people have been using an unofficial workaround to get around the change, which is pretty easy to do.
The popular music streaming service Spotify recently added a way to skip music in its Spotify Premium app.
Spotify said that users could skip music tracks if the app was in the background and that the app could detect when it was and would pause the audio playback when it detected it.
But Spotify also added a workaround for the new Spotify Premium feature, which would stop the audio playing while the Spotify app was paused.
Spotify added that users can enable or disable the feature by navigating to Settings > Background Audio > Disable.
You can disable this feature on Spotify Premium by tapping the little green box in the upper right corner of the screen and tapping the toggle next to Enable/Disable.
If you disable the toggle, Spotify Premium will not play music from the Spotify Music app when you stop listening to Spotify.
Spotify also said that if you enable the feature, Spotify will pause the playback of Spotify Music, which will only be active when the Spotify Premium service is paused.
