Windows 10, Android 10
My Question or Issue
EDIT: I found the cause to be a left over group session, see my post below. This is still a major issue.
Starting this morning, random songs start playing while I'm listening to music. I can be listening to my own music for about 0-2 minutes, before it randomly switches to songs I never listened to before. The activity resembles human activity. It listens for a song for about 1-2 seconds then skips it, sometimes skips halfway to a song, or listens a few songs without skipping anything.
When I opened Spotify this morning, an unknown device briefly showed up in Spotify Connect, but since then it has disappeared (also see further below).
This has not been happened a few times, it has been happening non-stop for about 6 hours now. My Spotify is completely unusable this way.
My first thought was that someone has unauthorized access to my account, so this morning I reset my password, logged out of all devices and removed all apps/integrations from my account. Spotify Connect does not show any other devices (except for the single device that briefly showed up this morning, but is gone since then). I am the only one with access to this account. However, this still did not fix the issue and random songs still start playing.
Another thought was that some application on my laptop was controlling Spotify. I made sure that this is not the case by exiting the Spotify application on Windows, and using my Android phone. However, the issue is also present there. This means the activity comes from the Spotify servers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
