[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:

Thank you so much JanEras!

I had to look around a bit to find the menus you described. But yeah, they are there! How stupid is that!

For those who couldn't find like me; the first menu is: when you tap on the playing song's title at the bottom, you see the album picture. On that screen tap the three dots on top right.

The second menu is; go to your library, then tap your playlist, then tap the three dots on top right. This doesn't work on the now playing list.

@JanEras  THANK YOU! The fact that this exists at all is GREAT news. The sleep timer feature with it's multiple options is good for those who are using Spotify to fall asleep. The end after current track is especially good for podcasts. It seems like they're trying to make their app more podcast-friendly, which is nice.

 

Spotify take note, this isn't easy to find or use yet. I can't remember ever tapping on the current song on my app before and only did so now to try and find this sleep timer feature. It should be a playback or playlist option, not just a sleep timer option. But it's a start, so for that thank you.

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.
