This is just a workaround as you have to do refresh work manually. In this case the problem is that the Spotify widget is not able to refresh itself,  this can be issued with the widget or iOS 14,  which is not triggering refresh of the widget

Fix 2: Remove and add the Tune Track Widget again

In iOS 14 lots of other widgets like weather, date, calendar widgets are reported with giving problem like not displaying the data correctly. This can be issue with widget configuration or iOS 14. To eliminate  any configuration related issue we recommend to delete the Widget and add it back again.


Fix 3: Update the Tune Track app regularly

Spotify which is not working in TuneTrack can be an issue with Tune Track app, the developers are aware of Spotify widget not working (Tune Track) and in the latest version of tune track 1.0.3 release notes (shown in below pic) they have mentioned that they have added stability to the widget. We highly recommend to update the Widget, and keep on setting for any pending updates

Fix 4 : Authorise Tune Track in Spotify 

Tune track is a third party Widget for Spotify, hence by default it cannot access Spotify. After installing tune track-> Open Music Server-> Tap on Spotify> It will ask you to authorise Tune Track for accessing Spotify data. Please ensure to grant necessary permissions.

Fix 5: Keep Updating iOS 14 whenever possible

In OS 14 many Widgets like weather , clock  widgets are not updating, showing blank space only, grey box shown in place of widget. So we cannot be sure about iOS 14 supporting all the Widgets properly. So we recommend you to keep on checking for updates of iOS 14 and update your iPhone to the latest version.
