Yesterday, I was listening to Spotify in my kitchen.
A connection notification popped up, saying "Connected to Jasper's iPhone [then the normal options: Continue Listening, Listen on this Device]" Meaning that my music from my Android (running the latest update, Marshmellow) was somehow interfering this guy's phone with no direct prompt from me. At the time I figured that, since I was in my kitchen, maybe it was just somehow picking up my nieghbor's signal.
Today, I'm driving down the freeway, halfway to work when the prompt appears again. This means that my music stops playing because this guy, whoever he is, wants to listen on his device (naturally). So I try telling Spotify to start listening on my device instead. This guy, being a joker, decides that he's gonna start playing Orgasm Sounds (seriously, why is this even an option?). It's at this point I realize that, unless I let his device listen to whatever, he is capable of determing what I listen to as well, meaning that I do not have any control over the app I'm paying $10 a month for.
Before you ask, I have no idea who this guy is, and my phone is not jailbroken or otherwise tampered. If I select to disconnect from his device it still doesn't work. I've even disabled Device Broadcast Status, and it still doesn't change anything. I have not attempted to connect to any device other than my computer, and I have no idea why there would even be an option to connect to someone's device over data, let alone somebody's phone and do so automatically. However, if this issue is not resolved, then I have no choice but to cancel my Spotify premium. I use this app every single day, and would love to continue doing that, but I'm really out of options here and don't want ot pay so much money for an app that only works on behalf of somebody I don't even know.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The connection between devices is via account, not network. This means that somebody else may be logged into your account. I recommend you do the following:
If that doesn't help you should contact Spotify directly using the contact form.
