Deeplink of episode won't trigger Spotify desktop app playing

Deeplink of episode won't trigger Spotify desktop app playing

dzungnguyen179

Hi,

I think this is a bug. Steps to re-produce:

  1. Make sure you turn off completely Spotify Desktop app
  2. Open browser
  3. Parse this link at address bar spotify:episode:3OWPKdc4erp3oLTpdQQx3G
  4. Spotify Desktop app will be opened, but won't automatically play

Note: This bug only happens for Podcast, the song works fine.

 

Configuration:

  • OS: macOS Big Sur
  • Browser: Chrome

Hey there, help's here!

 

Hmm, it sounds like this is expected behaviour. The Spotify app on desktop doesn't automatically play a link or URI that's opened. If you'd like you can suggest this over at the Ideas board, check it out for more information! Let me know if you have any questions!

Have a great day,

Hubo

Hi,

Thank you for answering. What I observed is:

  • with "podcast" => open via "uri" => Desktop app is opened and then "not" automatically played
  • with "track" => open via "uri" => Desktop app is opened and then automatically played
  • "context uri" => Desktop app is opened and in both cases, the player is not automatically played.

The behavior from both are not consistent.
