[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. :)

What most impressed me about this "device connection issue" is the fact SO MANY users had complained about and we CAN'T hear no answer from Spotify! 


Please, Spotify, do us all a favor, just tell us that you WILL NOT do anything or DO SOMETHING about it! 


I created an account for the forum just to add my voice to the "I can't believe this problem hasn't been fixed in over five years, and there are no plans to fix it, either." I had to remove Spotify from my phone to keep the app from automatically launching whenever my daughter starts listening on a different device, and it's making me re-consider paying money for a service that I can't use.


This is bs. Don't want the feature to begin with and to top it off now my Spotify Android app is randomly playing on other devices. Spotify why won't you let us turn it off?!?!?!

This thing randomly playing though whatever device i left connected it really annoying, if i go to my work pc and hit play, it is because i expect it to start playing through my work PC, please give us the option of turning this really annoying "feature" off

 I have been a member for 4 years and literrally have come on here for the first time just to say how bad and annoying this is, give us the option of turning it off

This is now beyond annoying. Spotify is only one of many options. It is time to start looking. If I am listening on my phone, Spotify turns on my tablet as well, even when the tablet app is set to offline. The app is also perpetually downloading whenever I am connected to WiFi. I don't have that many saved songs. What the **bleep** is it downloading?

This has completely ruined Spotify for me.


Just play music, go **bleep** yourselves.

When I play spotify from work, I scare my wife since the device automaticly plays from my livingroom. Shes pregnant, so i dont want the birth to start early because of the loud sudden noises from the livingroom scaring the water out of her. Is there a fix for this? 


Please add an option to turn this feature off, I dont like it at all...


So, how many is enough votes for Spotify to actually listen to its customers? So glad I am not paying them to be treated this poorly.
