Play only one Song from a List

Music Fan

Hi there,

how can I play only one song when i'm e.g. in an album or a playlist?

When I doubleclick the song, the rest of the tracks will be played, too.

Please don't tell me, it's not possible...

Hey @Sagehorn,

 

We understand what you mean. It is possible to play the same song by hitting the Repeat button twice, but it will keep repeating that song and there's no way for it to automatically stop at the end of the song unless you pause. 

 

If you want an option to play only one song in an album without repeating it, and you think others would like it implemented, you can create an idea and others can vote for it and contribute to the discussion. 

 

We always take new ideas and feedback into consideration to improve the app, and you can read more about how ideas work here.

 

Let us know if there's anything else 🙂

Hey @Sagehorn, help's here. 

 

If you look up a song which is displayed in a playlist or album, it's not possible to only play that song. You can however choose to repeat only that song by pressing the repeat button twice (find more info here).

 

If you want to only play that song, you can add it to a new playlist containing only that song. 

 

Hope that helps! If not, let us know the intention of wanting to play only one song, and we'll see what we can do.

 

All the best!

Of course this is not satisfying 😉

In Winamp i was able to click "Play this Song only" in the context menu of the track.

I think its necessary. How can you explain to your users that they are not able to only listen to one song? I want simplicity and you wont get it if you have to create a playlist therefor ...

 

Btw: Is it so hard to make a more customizable interface? Are you afraid the coders lose overview? 😉

My desire to play only one track is to go to sleep listening to a meditation or a story sleep podcast such as “Nothing Much Happens”.

Hey there @Mistyv,

Thanks posting here in the Community! We'll gladly help you out.

You can play only one track or podcast by turning off Autoplay and removing everything in your Play queue. This way after your currently played item ends, nothing else will start until you manually select it 🙂

 

Hope this info is useful. Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.

 

Have an awesome day!

This answer is not valid at the moment. I created a list with only one song. After the song is done, Spotify just keeps bringing new ones to play. You can see this happening in the "Play Queue" list. There, you need to remove each song from the queue one by one

Hey @cmy

 

Thanks for reaching out. This doesn't right and we'll be happy to investigate further.

 

If you have our Premium service and you turn Autoplay off, you should be able to listen to just one song at a time if that's the only track in the playlist.

 

If you have trouble with that, could you send us a screen recording of what you're experiencing so that we can take a closer look.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your reply.
