[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. 🙂

Hey folks,


Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea!


We're keeping this idea as 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.


If we do have any new info to share, rest assured we'll check back in here with a new status.




Since Spotify product managers have no interest in making their products usable, if your goal in wanting to disable Spotify Connect has anything to do with an iPod in your car playing for 10 seconds before spontaneously switching to play through a computer in the house you just left, any decent wireless router firmware will allow you to create isolated guest networks on different subnets and you can then connect your mobile devices to them exclusively. Spotify won't see anything else to connect to on the local link but it can still ping the registration server to verify that you've paid up and should indeed be allowed to play downloaded copies untethered.


It's utterly ridiculous that you have to go to these lengths, but...


Really need this feature!


While connect is a nifty feature, I have yet to have any need for it. And as such, it just consumes battery life on my mobile for no reason at all.


I find it intrusive and annoying, please implement the option to turn it on/off!


Hi, all of you which are suffering because of this awful "feature".


Well, I contact Spotify Cares (look attachments) and they just told me "we have NO IDEA when we will 'fix' this".


So, for all of you that are very **bleep** with this device connection thing, seat and relax, because they have no clue when they will fix this!

Hi there.

This is still happening. Please FIX and update your customers!

Spotify has to have the absolute worst customer service I've found. 

Your devs can implement this annoying feature easy enough, why can't they give us the option to disable it??




Please, PLEASE do this. Enough of us have been complaining about this for long enough that I think this change ought to make it onto the devs to-do list...

Hi Spotify Support,


I hope you are having a fantastic day sitting back with your feet up ignoring your customers.

This issue is still happening. I would refer to your team as a bunch of tools but at least tools are useful.


Kind regards,

Hi Team,


This issue has still not been fixed.


Please advise when you will fix this bug in connect.




if this problem don't get fixed it will be the end of spotify for me as I cannot live with this issue.  When listening from other audio source in the car (audiobook or else) as soon as I up the volume spotify starts the last Listened to song.  i cannot find a solution other than deleting this app. Going offline/online Mode every time ain't a solution. We need a on/off switch...Please fix
