Radio autoplay when playlists end

For the past few days, whenever I get to the end of a playlist or album, instead of simply ending, it will begin playing a radio station based of the playlist I just listened to. Is this a glitch or a new feature, and either way how do I get it to stop? I make playlists in order to have a specific set of songs, the exact opposite reason one listens to radio, which is a random and new set of songs.

Hey folks, we've merged quite a few similar threads here. It sounds like you're all asking about the Autoplay feature that we're currently rolling out to users.

 

With Autoplay you don't ever have to stop the music. Once you reach the end of an album, playlist, or set of tracks, Spotify will automatically play a Radio station based on it. 

 

To see how to disable (or re-enable) this AutoPlay feature, click here.

Hi @Gehren, welcome to the Spotify Community!

 

In your mobile app, go to Settings - Playback - and disable Autoplay.

 

Voilà :)

Thanks for your reply, @sillyduffer!

 

A reinstall should help with this. Check out the steps here.

 

Let us know if that helps.

I tried the reinstall today, followed all the steps, cleared the data and started completely over. It is still switching to radio after playlists and albums.

If this helps, it always, upon reaching the end of the playlist, shows the first song for a few milliseconds, then says "song cannot be played" and then switches to radio.

Yeah. Annoying listening to album then straight after it auto plays radio based on album.
There must be an option to turn this auto play feature off.

This behaviour is so "off the wall" that I'm inclined to think it's yet another Spotify A/B test. Maybe @Alejandro_C could check this?

Hey, thanks for replying!

 

We've just updated our app version for Android. Can you let us know if the issue still exists after updating to the latest version?

 

Keep us posted.
