As with most annoying features in Spotify, the answer is to always keep it in offline mode on your phone. It also solves the Spotify Connect battery sucking problems as it tries to connect to every device around you automatically.
Spotify is not going to get rid of videos voluntarily. They want you to pay attention to them so that you click on the video and they get ad revenue (That's right, your premium subscription is NOT ad free!). They will only change if the new feature stops making them money, so deprive them of the some of the data and ad revenue they so desperately want by putting it in offline mode.
No one wants to watch videos on a music app. We want to listen to music and not pay for all the extra data you cause us to use by forcing videos on us. This is ridiculous. I will be filing a class action lawsuits for Spotify to pay for my data charges.anyone else on board. This is utterly a useless feature to have videos. NO ONE WANTS VIDEO. TURN IT OFF. Or make a **bleep**in button so we can turn it off. About to switch to Google and Amazon after 3 years of paying for premium. KILL THE VIDEOS NOW
RIDICULO!!! Se eu quisesse video eu iria pro YOUTUBE, vocês estão de sac**gem? Esses videos travam, repentem a musica, que QUALIDADE vocês querem dar nos forçando a isso?? EU ESTOU PISTOLAÇA COM VOCÊS, MANO!!!!!!
I'm on the 3 month trial of Premium. When riding the subway underground, with weak or no cell signal, my music just stops when the playlist tries to play a video. Then I have to dig into my bag to find my phone and figure out why the F my music just stopped! While I'm fumbling for my phone in the crowded NYC subway, I risk serious injury from falling since my hands aren't holding the pole. I also risk looking like an **bleep** who wears headphones while no music is playing. My constitution is weak and cannot handle the stares.
After my 3 month trial is finished, I'm not renewing. Bye bye Spotify.
