My Question or Issue: Everytime I get into my car which syncs bluetooth automatically with my phone, Spotify decides to start, despite the fact that it was not active before getting in the car (ie Spotify wasn't running in background OR foreground).  How can I stop this happening?

Hey @gregjcollings.

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this in the Community.

 

Is this something that started occurring for you recently, or has it always been the case? Also, has this been happening just on your device?

 

In any case, do you mind trying a clean reinstall on your device and seeing if that fixes things for you?


If not, make sure to get back to us with the exact Spotify version you're running and we'll look into it :)

Thanks Peter - it only happens on my phone but I am the only one who has a
phone using spotify in my car, so not surprising. I will do a few
experiments and make a diary of what is happening and see what it tells
me. Thanks for the reply.
