Random Auto Play after Update to android 4.4.2 -

I recently updated to KitKat 4.4.2 after the update Spotify random starts playing even though no action has been taken. I have tried unistalling/reinstalling spotify, going to offline mode, and nothing works. The battery drain is significant and there is no indication when or why the app just starts playing. 


Device Info:

Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD

Android 4.4.2


Spotify version:


Thanks in advance for you help.

Is your account being used on any other mobile devices (android or iOS)? Wondering is Spotify connect starting it.

Thanks for the quick reply, I have verified it is not Spotify connect. I was able to reproduce the problem, it appears to be related to bluetooth connections. Here's the series of events:

1. listened to Spotify streaming (online mode) 

2. got in the car BT connected while still playing

3. Stopped the current track, used the back button to go all the way back to the homepage. 

4. Turned car off, BT disconnected, Spotify started back up. 

5. Stopped track, backed all the way out to the home screen.

6. Got back in car, BT connected, Spotify started up again right were it left off. 


Appears the BT is triggering Spotify and Spotify is not fully exiting as it should. 


Let me know if that helps or if you need additional information. 


Thanks again.

Was there any fix found for this.  I use my bluetooth throughout the day for calls and it is continually autostarting the app when I end the call from my headset.
