Could you confirm if you still experience the same after running a clean reinstall of Spotify on your mobile device? This will update your app to the latest version and remove corrupted data causing the issue.
In case this persists, make sure no battery optimization settings or data cleaning apps run active on your mobile device. Such features can often prevent the app from operating at full capacity. We also suggest accessing the app settings and making sure all Permissions are enabled for Spotify.
Hope this helps. Keep us posted.

I did everything you said and it definitely still did it. I got a new phone (iPhone 12 pro) after trying it, did a clean install, and it still does it. If it’s not supposed to be doing this, then something is pretty wrong, because nothing works. I’m still having to log out to prevent it from auto playing when my car starts.
I have an iPhone and it does it. It did it on my old iPhone and the brand new one I just got. Tells me that it’s a Spotify problem. I wish they’d just add a feature to turn off and on auto connect, but then again it doesn’t sound like they’re wanting it to auto connect at all and having trouble figuring out how to make it not?
Happens to me all the time. Incredibly annoying and has been going on for years. In fact if I am connected to my any audio device with bluetooth (car, headset, whatever), after I receive a text it start playing the last song. If I force kill the app, it will start itself every f'n time after I get a text or other notification. Dumb as **bleep**.
Why don't you guys ever actually try and fix this instead of all the silly uninstall/reinstall/repair bluetooth suggestions that are a waste of time??
