[Music] Stop Playback after a Track

I hate to stop the music in the middle of a track, so i would love some way to make Spotify stop playback after the current track.

 

Right now I can simulate the desired behaviour by right-clicking an empty playlist, (that i have created for this purpose only) and selecting "Choose as Current Playlist" and making sure that the play queue is empty. While this is a nice workaround, I think that it would make sense to include a real "Stop Playback After Current Track"-function in Spotify.

 

Update (2015-02-01):

The previously suggested workaround doesn't even work any more as Rapti has pointed out in a comment. At one point it could even make Spotify crash completely.

 

I would like to point out that a saner, more flexible queuing system could allow even finer control over when to stop playing. Thus people who like this idea might also like:

DO IT please

We totally need this. I remeber Winamp had excellent Queue controls. Stop after current with Starman would be my standard sleeping ritual..

Please, please. How is this still not a thing? Spotify - please listen to us. 🙂

Listening to podcasts without this feature is just obnoxious. I often would like to listen to just one long episode - no different than wanting to listen to just one album. Would there be this much delay in adding a feature to NOT listen an artist's entire discography without a manual stop at the end of an album if there wasn't that feature already? Netflix and YouTube have the option to toggle off "autoplay next episode". I don't understand how literally 5+ years of people asking for this feature is not convincing enough.

Listening to a guided meditation for sleep, falling asleep, and then being woken up by whatever plays next is the absolute worst.

Would be good to be able to listen to just one podcast episode while falling asleep without it playing episode after episode all night.

This would be an amazing feature but the guys from Spotify are really busy to 'so small' change ..

YEARS later, they finally say "nah, we're not going to do it."
Great job, Spotify. If the Amazon Music app ever becomes as polished as the Spotify app (and by this thread it's clear it could be even more polished), I'm going to seriously consider switching now that Unlimited has come to Canada. They don't have quite the huge library that Spotify does, but some 90% of my songs are on both so meh.

Unbelievable.

I'm speechless.
