Turn off spotify connect?

Hi, I'd like to know how to turn off spotify connect, it is not a function I like to have turn on automatically when it detects other devices in the network.
Many thanks
Peter

The short answer currently is you can't.

You shouldn't have been able to do that before Spotify Connect either. Spotify only offers single user accounts, so you can only ever stream on one device at a time on each account.

Re: Turn off spotify connect?

thanks Peter, is there a plan from Spotify to make us decide whether or not we want it?

this funtion doesn't work for me, now my active devices are constantly connecting, which i think is not battery friendly. and if i have to go offline then that defies the porpuse of having online library.

 

thanks

Re: Turn off spotify connect?

When you say devices are constantly connecting, which devices are you using?

Re: Turn off spotify connect?

Hi,

I was sitting on the bus on the way to work this morning, listening to a playlist I created on Spotify. My device kept connecting to someone else's device and started playing their music, which was awful...it must have happened about six times. 

How can I prevent this from happening?
