[Connect] Make Spotify Connect a Choice

I want to have the opption to turn it off. Please fix this, i wan't to listen to music and still be online without connect starts.

Please fix this. 

 

Jag vill gärna kunna använda spotify på en telefon utan att den andra telefonen ska börja dra batteri för att ni kommit på denna tjänst utan en avstängningsfunktion. Då ni är Svenska som startat detta hoppas jag på att ni accepterar svensk text. Och en svensk meny till spotify hade varit trevligt. 🙂

 

Från en trogen användare sedan år tillbaka 🙂

How is this still not a feature we can actually choose to disable????

I use spotify from my phone and on both work and home computers.

My driving music, my working music and my gaming music is radically different, and this feature STOPS ME being able to really DISCOVER anything, as its more often then not losing my progress on each device.

 

And the "Resume Playing" is useless as doesnt actually resume progress, just a link to the artist or playlist, not to where you actually were with the autoplay potentially hours after you listened to that album. Im less sure about radio, but seems the same deal there.

 

And if i do have a discovery mood and trawl artists or playlists, then good chance i lose my old progress entirely if i dont listen from my home computer for a bit.

 

 

It would take an afternoon or two to code the change, and win you massive points for actually listening to your users needs.

 

Make it an obscure hidden option, make it need to be explicitly enabled for each device, whatever - just provide it

It was marked as "not right now" almost 2 years ago. Maybe now would be a good time to implement option to turn off this unwanted feature? When I on my phone I don't have any desire to listen what I listend on my computer and vice versa. Those are separate devices with separate music I want to listen (on computer more discovery or background music for work, on mobile something energetic or podcaset while biking).

The worst thing is the darn pop-up that shows up every time I skip the song - why the heck would I want to have darn notification on my mobile that I skipped the song on my computer, while looking at my computer, and seeing it... this calles for a huge #facepalm (with a chair…)

 

(SOT: I kinda miss days of PC where you started an app and it was running, could generate notifications et al, and then you could close it and it stayed closed; nowadays with android it's a no-go... the apps can run in the background and even killking them doesn't help, then can do whatever they want, argh!)

Very annoying. Please fix this. We have more than enough distractions in our lives with all the great technology. But the constant notifications are the **bleep** himself. I know spotify is running. I am listening to it. I know I can control it with multiple devices. I have no need for the constant notification.

 

Please stop the madness.

I live in an apartment complex and people keep connecting their devices to my Spotify and using it, which is super annoying and I would love it to stop. Please make this an option that can be turned off.

WHY not now?????????????????????????

This has became a major issue for me. App is draining battery on my note 4 too much to handle now, forcing me to basically charge the phone two times a day. I am using premium spotify most of the day with either desktop or phone.

Without touching my phone just because i am using a service through another device my phone battery is dying. This is unacceptable. And considering this is a paid service that is causing more trouble than its worth is unbearable. Whoever thinks this is a good idea needs to be sent for mental checkup.

Seriously considering not to keep subscription.

So I have to deal with my phone playing or opening spotify when I don't want it too? That's fabulous. And this is why I won't resub now. I was thinking about it, but now. NAH. Sorry. Not if you're gonna ignore what your actual customers want.

Spotify Connect is extremely annoying. I frequently switch devices and have accidentially started playing music on one of our Amazon Echos while at work, freaking out my family from time to time. I have literally no use for this feature. On top of it, it seems to be just another mandatory service that is slowing my phone down. I can't seem to figure out what the intended use-case is for this functionality. Are there products out there that play Spotify but dont take any user input? Maybe its great for parties or something, who knows. Please make this functionality optional.

My girlfriend might murder me if Spotify Connect automatically plays again on my everywhere group at home while I'm out and about, not at home. Please for the love of everyone's sanity, make Spotify Connect only work within a single broadcast domain. Losing my god **bleep** mind over here.
