My Question or Issue

When I go to work while listening in my car via Spotify I get into the office and when I fire up my desktop Spotify, the same queue (along with repeat and shuffle settings) as the one on my phone. How do I stop this from happening? In my car I might listen to a playlist or podcast, but when I get to work I don't want those to play, I have playlists for work (non distracting). Then when I get back into my car, I've lost my place in the playlist or podcast.

 

Some devices are separate and should not share the queue. How do we work around this "feature". How do we stop having a shared queue between devices?

Hey @colanutnm, thanks for writing!

Unfortunately it's not possible yet to keep your queues seperatly on each device. But have a look at the following suggestion in the Ideas Exchange. You might be interested in this, as its fighting for your wanted feature: [Spotify Connect] Don’t automatically synchronize what I am playing across devices

 

Just leave your kudos/comments there to support it 🙂

I was afraid that was the answer. It worked correctly at one time I thought.

 

Anyhow, I had forgotten I had already upvoted that Idea. Rereading the thread, I don't have high hopes.
