I join this thread with the same issue. In my case I have no connections with a mobile device, but still it just stops in the middle of a song. When starting again it plays another song from some other playlist wich it doesn't display selected. It also starts playing from somewhere in the middle of the new song.

For me, it works like this:

 

1 - Music playing on desktop, Android app is closed.

2 - Open Spotify app on Android while desktop is still playing.

 

ACTUAL BEHAVIOUR: Android client becomes the Desktop controller by default but overrides the existing Desktop playlist with the Android playlist.

 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOUR: Either the Android app automatically becomes a controller for the Desktop, but doesn't overwrite the playlist, or gives you an option to 1 - Connect to PC or not, and 2 - Use Android playlist or Desktop playlist.

 

This one tiny quirk prevents me from using this feature more often as my desktop experience, at the moment, will always be changed by whatever I happened to have playing on my mobile previously.

I have the same issue. Even when uninstalling the app on my mobile device, this behaviour continues.

Hi
I have exact this behaviour as well, now in August 2015. Happened to me at least 10 times yesterday, August 24th. The same behaviour happen not only from my PC but also when listening from my mobiles, mobile1 (Android) and mobile 2 (IPhone). The very odd is that it is the same old playlist that comes up, a plylist not played for very long time (1 year?).

The use of connect is so niche it's actually ridiculous! Way more hinderances than benefits! Literally it only saves walking to my computer once or twice during a party... Would rather not lose my play queues/have to be offline all the time to be honest. Such an easy fix to all these problems too (a simple on/off switch like they have for way fancier stuff...)

i have similar issues, I have a windows desktop app + fire tablet app +  Yamaha network streamer

 

I dont ever listen on the tablet but I often use it to control the desktop app playback,

i use the tablet app also to  flip playback between my deskop app and my yamaha streamer via spotifdy connect

 

BUT sometimes , the tablet/desktop app do not show the yamaha as an available device,and when I acess the yamah directly via its remote or itsremote app I see that it has some older spotify play queue paused. so it did that just- the desktop was playign one queue and hte yamah was playign an album from yesterday!

 

so I can actually had my single spotify account playing two differenc streams on 2 devices which is supposed to be impossible ! and it's really hard to get themback in sync. I have to do lots off random on/off, close desktop app/ stop tablet app / clear cache to sort it.

 

I woull like to know what causes this to happen and how to best clear it when it does. I am the only spotify user within range and I have only one premium account. 

 

NB the yamaha does auto sleep after some period of activity, that may be a factor, e.g. it goes to sleep with a spotify playlist in its memory and does not re-sync to my account when it is woken back up ?

 

Now, given that the yamaha can be told to play/pause stop in 3 ways - via the spotify connect feature, via its own app, via it's fonrt panel controls/its own remote there is certainly scope for confuision, but all I want to know is how to keep my devices in sync and how to reset things when it goes wrong. The yamaha does not have a ful spotify interface, it just lets spotify be selected as a source and needs to be controoled via a remote spotify connect interface

how hard it is to add a new table thats saves the device and the current playlist for that device? i mean seriously, how incompetent can you be?
