[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.




This Connect feature is very annoying for anyone, who is using Spotify on Work PC, Personal PC, car and smartphone. It is totally useless, and obliges to workaround even more annoying. How many +1 do you need to insert a simple/stupid/easy toggle to get rid of this dumb function? Please tell us how many, and the community will work to reach your damned number.

Casual Listener

This made me login to this website, which I do not appreciate. I can't believe, how Spotify can ignore an issue for 6 YEARS!


This is the dumbest piece of a feature that I have ever seen. Maintaining a per-device playlist is nearly impossible. Listening to an audiobook/podcast (some new features, added way after 2014) on my commute to work and then switching to my work PC to listen to my work playlist **bleep**s everything. My work playlist is not in the correct position, the podcast/audiobook is **bleep** as well and I have to search for my book-position. 


Sound output, as described 6 years ago is still a mystery. Sometimes it just decides to switch the device. My girlfriend from home can control my music at work, when she is using our shared tablet with my account on it.


I can't even. I literally can't even.











And if that's not enough, while writing this very comment, their "You want to take a survey and tell us how great we are" message pops up here. I can't believe it.


Get a grip Spotify. For real.


I do not understand how to explain better than you do...


I hit play on Spotify while mowing the yard.  The app indicates the music is playing, but no sound comes out.  The app (or my headphones) have clearly malfunctioned.  I switch to another app and music plays fine.  It turns out that Spotify was just chugging along on my computer down in my basement.  WHY???????????  I never asked for this.  The times I want to use my phone as a remote control are maybe 1% of the time.  


As always, why is there no option to enable and disable this feature in the settings?  


I have found "Connect" useful as it is not possible to play a folder random from Android, but it works if I kick it off on the PC version and connect it to the android which continues to play random.


However it shouldn't "lose its place" like it had this morning when I started Spotify on my Android. And it should allow random playing of a playlist folder anyway.


Should be a choice though. We need play-queue bookmarks too. So I can bookmark my current play queue (on the device) and return to it later.
