My Question or Issue

It started a month ago or so. Music randomly starts playing. A song that I’ve never listened to. I press pause, but after a while it gets played again (or some other song gets played, but it’s not my music at all). I saw that it switches to Chrome Web Player when it starts playing, but I never use Web player, and there are no other computers in my home that use it. So I “take over” by selecting Play on Mac, but then it “retakes it” again. It almost looks like as I’m fighting with someone over who’s going to play the song / on which device!

Please advise, this thing makes it impossible for me to use Spotify!

In addition, you can try to log in on the web app and see what devices are connected. Log out from all and then worst case you can try to reinstall Spotify on your devices. 

 

Hope this helps!
