Android App opening in portrait mode

I’m using the android app on a Google Pixel 2. My Zwift App keeps opening in portrait mode whether or not I have screen rotation enabled.

Closing and re-opening the app 6 or 7 times eventually fixes this, but it’s annoying and I’ve been late to several events because of it.

This happens about 30% of the times I try to use the app. In portrait mode the ride is stuck on “pause” and cannot be un-paused.

Anyone else have this? Any solutions?
