TLDR: Is it possible to completely disable updates in Spotify?
Dear developers, please try to put yourself in the position of an average user. What do you think (s)he wants to do when opening spotify?
A) Listening to music or podcasts
B) updating spotify
The answer is A! I don't want to install updates everytime I open spotify! In fact I don't want to update spotify anytime at all!
It takes decades for the totally unnecessary updates to finish every time I open Spotify and I have new problems with your buggy nightly builds every week (like a black window or Spotify forgets where I stopped playing last time or audio driver issues and so on).
I don't get the stupid update rage of developers that built up over the last years. I use a lot of programs and at least one of them updates and keeps me away from working every day, because it takes a long time or crashes something. Just stop it. It's stupid. Give back control to the user, (s)he's the chief of her/his computer. Hobbyless nerds can have daily, hourly or even minutely builds if they need it to survive, but I don't want them.
