My Question or Issue

 Starting today, my phone would randomly start playing songs on Spotify while the phone was locked and without me opening Spotify myself. It is getting annoying because I see this as a potential source of draining my phone's battery, and also makes me unsure about the security of the mobile client for Spotify. I checked if my app is up-to-date, and it is. I would appreciate feedback. Thanks.

This happened to me once, but what happens a lot is I see a Spotify notification logo randomly. Then I pull down my notification shade to see what's going on and then it doesn't say it's playing anything, it's just kind of blank. Then it'll disappear after a minute or so. 

 

I suspect for me it has something to do with my Sonos One, though which I often play Spotify. When the above happens I'm not doing anything related to Sonos or Alexa, but it only starter happening.after I got that Sonos.
