My Question or Issue

This has been happening for long time, but after being on premium for long time I think I have a right to complain.

Spotify keeps playing songs that are not on my list. I only use custom playlists and don't want anything suggested playing while I'm on it. How **bleep** hard is that to do??

Every time my playlist is on shuffle, other songs from for example the same band will be inserted and played on my playlist - which I don't want.

Previous posts on similar subject are marked as solved because solution was:
a) Turn off Autoplay in settings (which I did)
b) Turn "Repeat All" for only playback from the current list - I also have that on.
problem still persist.

so another solutions by some truly tone def helpers on forum say: to reinstall app/update to latest version - which is also done (so you don't have top paste it in your template reply)

I attached a gif to show you that I can recreate this problem on command. As usual problem that is hear from at least 2016 (just by searching Spotify community).
On gif, I first scroll through my playlist to show all album artworks, then I play my playlist and just skip until a track that I don't want on my playlist shows up.

Hey @arte_nm,

 

Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!

 

We'll do our best to help.

 

Can you let us know if this is happening on all your playlists or just specific ones. You can creata some test playlists with 2-3 songs inside to try this out.

 

Also, does this happen on all your devices?

 

Keep us posted.

Hi, yes this happens on all devices that I tested. 3 Android phones and PC client. 

I have also made a playlist with 3 and 4 songs, and those are only going through whats on the list, but here when I use shuffle, spotify doesn't actually shuffle songs anymore. So another issue here.

Hey @arte_nm,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Could you try creating new playlists and copying the songs from the affected playlists to the new ones? Let us know if the issue persists, and if shuffle works as expected.

 

We'll be on the lookout.

I also have this issue but not just when I have shuffle on. Problem is I use sleep sounds to help me sleep and after I put one song on the next one is random and and up eat which means I have to turn it off, further hindering sleep.... This happens on playlists created by Spotify and playlists I have created. For example I just put 'deep sleep' on and Harry styles plays second which has nothing to do with the playlist 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ seriously considering a new streaming service!!! Also a premium family customer.

Hey @katieparsons89,

 

Thanks for posting in the Community.

 

The described issue seems related to the items in your queue. Could you empty your play queue as described here? Also make sure to turn Autoplay off, more on that here.

 

It's be also helpful, if the issue still persists after the steps above, to prepare a short screen recording, so we can fully understand what is going on on your end.

 

Keep us posted,

 

Cheers!

Hi there @rawbah,

 

Can you describe in detail what exactly is the issue you're facing, on what device is happening and if it's happening on all of your playlists?

 

Looking forward to your reply.
