[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:

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.




Imagine you're a dj at a party and you're mixing in tracks from spotify along with vinyl and CDs. I'd really love a mode where Spotify stops after every track so I can concentrate on mixing in the vinyl or CD without having to worry about stopping Spotify. An inelegant workaround is having a local file of 30 seconds of silence that I put between the tracks I'm playing at the party, but I shouldn't have to go to all that effort for something so simple.


Tap on three dots -> Sleep timer -> End of track. Done.


if you're on mobile, you can use sleep timer and select end of track.


we need that end of track sleep timer on desktop


This would be extremely helpful.
