Yes I do but I want of course to choose that myself. Spotify already have daily mix, suggestions at the end of each playlist, discover, a ranking based on what other people like. We do not need another way thrown in our face.
I don't think it's the worst feature to have, but they could have educated me about it when it was enabled. Took me by surprise after I finish playing a single and music starts right up. It's a cool concept to engage listeners with new music. The implementation of it could have been improved.
Don't forget folk who listen to a playlist they created to help them sleep or folk who enjoy audiobooks - I'm sure they don't want to hear anything else when their playlist ends. Anyhow, we know this feature can be turned off so there's no point arguing over its merits.
Hi @Gehren, welcome to the Spotify Community!
In your mobile app, go to Settings - Playback - and disable Autoplay.
You start a playlist because you want to play the songs in that playlist, from the first selected song to the end. When reaching the end, spotify shall stop, not start from the beginning of the playlist again as it already do sometimes, or start playing some random radio songs. Other behaviour is of course ok as people have different opinions, but changed behaviour shall be selectable by the user.
The playlist only starts playing again if the user enables the Repeat All button (the two arrows icon on the right of the Play icon).
About the Autoplay, you're right. But I guess that Spotify made this new feature enabled by default in the new app versions in order for the users to know it now exists.
Anyway, let me know if you need any help!
Well, needless to say, I do face the problem that a playlist starts from the beginning again without having this repeat-all function on. It happens now and then, possibly when I start in the middle of a playlist. Maybe spotify could implement a new feature where I can specify when I want to stop the music...preferably automatically enabled...
Autoplay seems to have disappeared in latest Desktop update?
Running on Mac
I've just updated mine to 22.214.171.1247.g2f08534a --- and the Autoplay is there.
Could you please double check if your version is the latest one available to you?
Definitely the latest, updated today. Autoplay no longer visible in the Preferences screen.
I have the same version as you @headlikearock and when I went into edit/preferences the autoplay option was missing but when I opened preferences by clicking the "v" in the top right (to the right of my user name) it was there and now appears whichever way I open preferences.
Probably another little bug.
Same here... I have version 126.96.36.1993.g6ea1e7f6 and autoplay option is missing.
Nope that didn't work, not on that menu either....
I have not updated beyond 10.0.2 because of battery drain problems with the updates, but apparently I cannot turn off radio autoplay because that option does not appear anywhere in settings. There is no settings/autoplay nor settlings/music/autoplay on my iphone 5S nor on my wifes iphone 6.
that feature does not appear on my iphone; neither under settings/autoplay nor settings/music/autoplay. I am using ios 10.0.2 on my iphone 5S and my wife's iphone 6.
