My Question or Issue

For the last couple of weeks every time I have the Spotify desktop app playing a song and I plug in my headphones, one of 3 things happens (ordered them based on the frequency the bugs happen):

A) The next song in the playlist starts playing (as if I pressed the "next" button)

B) The songs start skipping continuously (as if I was spamming the "next" button) and there is no way to stop it unless closing the entire app

C) The app completely crashes and I have to restart it

 

I am fairly sure that if there is a way to fix issue A it will fix the rest too but I have been unable to find a solution for the good part of a week now. I reckon this is due to a recent update as I did not have these issues at all until about 2 weeks ago as mentioned. I also use the mobile app if this matters at all.

I am also experiencing the exact same thing. It’s really annoying. Any help is appreciated
