Option to disable autoplay on bluetooth connect

Spotify automatically opens and starts playing music whenever I connect my phone to a bluetooth device. I really need an option to disable this!

 

This occurs on all devices I've tested and has been an issue for a while.

Hi there!

 

To turn off auto play please try the following:

  1. Tap Home .
  2. Tap Settings .
  3. Under Playback, scroll down to Autoplay and switch it on (green) or off (gray).


If that does not work for the bluetooth, I’d suggest starting a new thread in the Community Ideas Exchange.

This’ll allow users, Stars, and Moderators to vote and comment on it.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately that autoplay toggle is for automatically playing related songs after a playlist ends, so unrelated.

Oh Ok I now unserstand what your talking about,

So your issue it that it plays different songs after the playlist ends right?

No.

 

I really appreciate you trying to help but please read the OP and my previous post again. I really wouldn't know how I'd be able to explain the issue I'm experiencing in clearer terms than I did there.

Any updates on this? Running into the same problem.

Same problem here. 

 

How in the world can the developers think that this is a good idea, especially when not even giving an option to disable it? Nobody, I repeat NOBODY want's the stupid #€%# to start automatically making noise whenever you turn on your headset.

 

Fix it, now.

I agree this is most annoying.

 

Ideally there should be a setting to prevent spotify from playing any song uppon startup.

 

Problem: whenever I start spotify (does not matter if I start it manually or if it starts automatically on bluetooth connect), spotify resumes playing whatever song was playing last time it was turned off/powered off/shutdown.  A must embarasing thing when friends are in the car and your "solo drive home/meditation playlist" start playing.

 

Only solution I have found is to logout out (settings /logoff) every time I am finish listening.  Needless to say I stopped using spotify regularly - all due to this problem.

I also experience the similar issue. Whenever I open my spotify app with a bluetooth earphones connected on my device, the all autoplays the last song that was played. It is so annoying. I don't think it's even in the settings. Could it be a bug of the latest update? I never experienced this before.
