How do I disable Spotify Connect
I believe the ability to toggle the service at will is being discussed internally, but nothing is official. At present these are temporary work-arounds which aren't officially supported.
Please do not use this thread to compain about Connect or the inability to disable it manually.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've just done some testing... played some tracks without disabling anything.... notification came up on my phone. Disabled the AppLink Service and changed track... nothing. exited out of Spotify, re-tried.... nothing. I think I found it!
I'd appreciate it if you could try and confirm it's working for you. I did try playing a track using my phone normally and it played OK, so hopefully this is it.
Gave it a go, didn't work for me. It does help, but I'm looking for complete lack of interaction between different devices so it's not a perfect solution.
If you want to disable the complete interaction then disable the AppLinkServe & the ConnectManagerProxy. It seems the Applink is the one that runs in the background listening to see if other devices start playing.... the ConnectManager runs when you have the Spotify app on the phone playing and want to control a device.
