My Question or Issue

 When I search for a song and click to play, spotify automatically starts that song's radio. Which makes it difficult when the song i click doesn't have a radio and i get an error.

Hey @Spectrre1611,

 

That sounds odd! Does it happen wherever you click to play a track? For example, if you're on an artist page and click a song in an album. 

 

Keep us posted,

No only in search and on radio search.

Hey @Spectrre1611

 

Got it, for search this is likely the Autoplay feature - which automatically plays simlar songs when your music ends. You can switch this off under the 'Playback' section of your settings.

 

We hope this helps!

Nope. Tried that before, tried again just now. The picture attached is one such song I'm aware that doesn't have radio so it shows what I mean with an error.

Just wanted to say that the picture was before I started actually driving. 

Don't use your phone while driving... I have responded to too many accidents because of such..

Hey @Spectrre1611,

 

It's great to hear that you take safety first 🙂 

 

We can see that you're using the Waze integration. Does this happen only when using Spotify with Waze, or even when using Spotify stand-alone?

 

Have you experienced this with other tracks?

With or without integration on.  And yes with other songs too.

Hey again @Spectrre1611,

 

Thanks for keeping us posted. We'd like to recreate this from our side. For this, we need two things (you don't have to use Waze):

  • Step by step description of how this happens with as many details as possible, from starting the app til getting the error message.
  • The URI of the track that didn't work. 

Thanks!

This is the rattling bog song that I know gives the error. It's the first one in search with various artists. 

I start spotify, search and click all songs. Click one and it starts playing (radio station). Or it gives the error.
