Some posts in this thread are kind of old (2012), I'm not sure if this was solved but I've readf the entire thread and mostly people are begging to get some peace, and now May 2015, I've been having the same problem since a year or two now.
I got a premium account and I listen mostly on the computer while designign liek the other guy. The notification option is turned off under the menu EDIT/PREFERENCES. Actually now that I check I can see that this option isn't any longer there in the client. I upgraded this morning (automatic option - asked to restart). I have version 18.104.22.168.ga9c24d6a now apparently.
The biggest problem I have is that I get notifications on my mobile phone front screen, when the phone is locked, and then it'll beg for attention at various times during the day. Mostly I'm spammed by a prublisher for "deep sleep" or something like that. I actually tried to search for some "sleep music" for out toddler 2 years ago when she had cholic, and basically cried constantly (we carried her all day all night). Now do I need to know that "Deep Sleep" somehow released something every week? The publisher is clearly spamming everyone that once listened to their stuff (it was crap). How can I turn this sh*t off?
I can see lot's of options on the online profile settings, but I don't know which one this would refer to. I would still like to know when the bands that I really like release something, like Damon Aalbarn/gorillaz for example.
After clicking "unsubscribe" to half a dozen Spotify e-mails, I still am getting spammed by Spotify. My notification disable button doesn't work, because it's showing that I'm unsubscribed from everything.
I submitted a help ticket to Spotify three weeks ago (Spotify Case # 03017249), but no one has replied. I'm seriously considering cancelling my account just to avoid these annoying e-mails...
I have not linked a facebook account, yet I get notifcations that show up in the icon prominently when random users follow my playlists. I really don't care and I especially don't want this attention grabbing icon sitting in my taskbar. I'm a premium user and it's bad when a product you paid for acts like this.
Spotify please add an option to disable all notifications in the taskbar icon and elsewhere! I can't believe it's been 3 years with no solution to this!
Yeah me too, registered here just to tell how bull**bleep** this is. We are already paying spotify the money, why in earth can't we turn off the notifications about songs added to random playlist (who cares like wtf?) coming to our client and phones. How can it be so hard?
