So, almost every time I open the Spotify desktop app and play a song on my windows computer the camera turns on. My computer notifies me of this on-screen and the camera light turns on. When I close Spotify, I get a notification that my camera has turned off and the light turns off. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I downloaded the app from the Microsoft Store. I have also searched my settings, both in the Spotify app and on my computer.
I have looked at other posts on this or similar topics and there is never a real answer. Always just uninstall and reinstall, which I did and it didn't work. I don't have this issue with any other application.
I would really appreciate a real fix for this as it is really creepy and super intrusive.
Edit: Thank you so much to everyone who helped me!

Hi there @GraceHawkeye,
thanks for reaching out about this !
I've seen that you mentioned going through your PC settings.
What i wanted to check with your is if you done this:
- Camera Privacy Settings
- Turn off allowing access to your camera by apps
Let me know if you've done this process and we'll continue from there.
Thanks for your cooperation 🙂
