Same issue here. Who the **bleep** on the dev team thought that this was a great idea? Seriously.

My favorite is getting an important call to my laptop Teams client, grabbing headphones and running to a more silent place in the office leaving the phone on the desk. When I turn on the headphones to answer the call they connect also to the phone and**bleep** which I was listening on the way to work in car starts autoplaying. ARGH.

 

At least give us an option to disable the behaviour in some other way than uninstalling the Spotify client.

I seem to have the opposite problem, but I assume it is caused by the same behaviour..

On the Windows App, if I am listening with Bluetooth headphones or a Bluetooth speaker and I stop/pause the playback, the music stops, but it will then start playing automatically when I turn off the Bluetooth headphone/speaker. 

It's very annyoing because my Bluetooth speaker has a timeout for shutting down if no music plays for a while, so if I leave for lunch for example, when I come back the music has started playing on its own through the laptop's speakers while I was away.

I like this app, but there has to be a better app that does not have this issue. Says solved. It is not solved!

I've just managed to solve the problem on my android phone. While the Bluetooth headset is connected: 1) go to phone settings 2) Go to sound settings 3) Earphone mode 4) Disable the 'Auto Play' function. Worked for me. Hope this will help 😊

That does not solve the problem. Autoplay in app settings is a feature to continue playing similar music after your track ends. It does not address the problem where Spotify plays endlessly in the background while you are listening to other audio sources. Starting phone or connecting to your car's Bluetooth or other apps opening Spotify causes it to start playing and wastes data as a result. Need an option where Spotify only starts playing tracks if you press the play button in the app or a connected app.

Android settings, you mean the settings on my phone? It doesn't have an "earphone mode" setting on my phone so 🤷‍♂️.
