Older Spotify Android APK that works much better

Spotify app circa 2021 is more reliable on Android 11 and over bluetooth.

Current version of Spotify is quite buggy on my OxygenOS 11 (Android 11). Main issue is that the media player widget often disappears, or does not appear at all, which breaks car bluetooth controls. Reinstalling the app, removing battery optimization, or locking the app on the switcher did not help.

However, the older Spotify version circa 2021 works rather well, and still has most of the functionality.
