My Question or Issue

My phone starts playing seemingly random songs (not from my playlists) even when it's locked and I'm not playing it myself from another source. I know I'm the only one using my account, as I've logged out from my account on all devices and changed password many times. It also stops playing when I slide it away from my notification bar, so there's no one else pranking me.


This is very embarrassing since I have no control over it and it can start playing at any moment. It has happened twice now, in the span of 2 weeks, and it seems that it's related to Google Chromecast. Both times it happened, I used Chromecast and then after a while Spotify starts playing by itself, even when Chromecast is turned off and my wifi is turned off. Both times it happened close after I stopped using Chromecast.

User Zachviolin describes the exact same issue as you, he posted under the Android tag one week ago. He also has your Oneplus 6. I wonder if it's related to that phone and OS.


I'd recommend initiating a support chat to tell them what's happening and mention the other post to this forum. They might take your bug report and report it to the dev team.

Thanks, I see you also had the issue and that it's related to something which plays Spotify from the phone like a Chromecast or Sonos. I hope we find a solution to it
