Thanks for reaching out here. We appreciate the feedback and have passed it on to our developers.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a solution for this at the moment because the way the app behaves when connected to Bluetooth devices, including car stereo systems, varies based on the device involved. However, we’re constantly optimizing our app, so this behavior might change in future updates.
For now, we'd recommend that you reach out to your car stereo device manufacturer customer support team to get help with the Bluetooth configurations.
You can also check out different ways to connect Spotify to your car stereo for listening here.
We hope you'll find this clarification useful and we’ll be here for you if there's anything else you'd like to ask.
Thank you for understanding and drive safely!

Is this answer a joke!? Every person with this problem (which is many, many people) needs to reach out to their car stereo manufacture to solve a Spotify issue? It's must easier to just cancel the subscription and go to another provider.
Well of course is a joke for them. What is even worse, for example if the music was not playing in the car, if you receive a phone call after you end it the music starts playing on it's own just like that. I will go back to google, I really wanted to give my money to another company but it seems that our overlord is much better.
If the problem is my car stereo then please explain to me why my other music apps don't have this same problem. For example YouTube does not automatically play in my car if the app is closed, only if it is open. Spotify is doing something that forces the latest song to stay forced in the queue even when the app is supposed to be closed. It even forces itself to the top of the queue even if I was listening to YouTube last when I start up my car Spotify starts playing even though I have youtube open and Spotify was closed. The only way I can stop this is to uninstall Spotify.
