Hey @user-removed,

 

Thanks for reaching out!

Autoplay can be turned off from the app settings 🙂
Go to Settings -> Playback -> Autoplay to do so.

Hope this helps!
Let us know if any questions arise 🙌🏼

"Autoplay" isn't an option, only "Autoplay similar content" is an option. That doesn't stop podcasts from autoplaying.

Hey @jonprc,

 

Thank you for joining the conversation. 

 

In the Spotify app, podcasts and albums behave in a similar way. This means that the app will take the podcast show as an entire album and every episode like a song. Taking this into account, the Autoplay feature will not play similar content if you’re listening to the last episode sorted from eldest to newest (the one on the bottom of the list).


 


In this case, if you want to listen to just one single episode and it’s not the last one of the list, you can add it to the play queue instead of playing it directly from the show. This will prevent next episodes from playing after the one you're currently listening to.

Hope this helps. If anything else comes up, the Community will be here for you.

I am glad that I found this because it helps me to understand the logic of Spotify. I think that many of us would be VERY grateful if you can create an option in Settings where Podcasts are NOT treated like albums and the next episode will not autoplay... having that happen is HIGHLY frustrating and is a feature that a user should be able to control, especially if we are paying for premium. Thank you. 

Just adding support to this. Podcasts are not like songs and it can very annoying to have one autoplay when you don’t expect it. It would be great to be able to disable autoplay for podcasts only. 

When I play an episode of podcast to which I subscribe, the next episode automatically plays. I want to stop this. I have tried switching offf Autoplay but it makes no difference. How do I stop the next podcast from playing automatically?
I am using android.

Like others have said, there's no option to prevent it... only workarounds to manage a play queue. Ironically it works fine on smart speakers... the podcast stops after an episode has finished.
