[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.




Thanks, this sounds like a good option.  I can't seem to find the "playing a song" screen though.
I'm using the desktop app (Windows); are you talking about a feature there, or in a mobile app, or web page?

Hi @everyone,
I checked LemBi's idea to use the sleeptimer.
Apparently it's only on mobile devices. (Android or iOS)

There is a post here to request the feature for the desktops.

Hello Again, sorry for beeing not very precise in describing Sleeptimer. This is available on Android app for sure, IOS has it but in a different way, desktop version unfortunately does not support this feature.

Check this post for more details, I dont't know if there was a feature update since it has been published:
