    Hi, is there a way to whitelist Spotify so it doesn't close automatically a moment after i pause the music. I actually searched and found that you have to add Spotify to the "Unmonitored apps" in "Device maintenance" (settings) but i did that (as you can see here https://imgur.com/a/GoYT7PK) and it still shuts down when i press "Optimize now". I'm asking this because my Spotify widget on the homescreen only works when the little notification (the circle with lines) is on the notification screen.Any workaround ? Thanks !!

    Using Tasker to override the settings may be a alternative
