Windows 10 machine. On two different machines, I have set the option "Open Spotify automatically after you log into the computer" to "No". Spotify continues to open automatically when the system is rebooted.
Same here - Windows 7-8-10 machines. A real turn off. Tidal does the same thing. I don't understand it from a business perspective. Fixed price - unlimited streaming is a shakey enough model that's yet to turn a profit. To throw it in your face constantly is like and "all you can eat" fish dinner where they bring you 100 pieces of fish right away.
