How to stop automatic radio after playlist?

Spotify started automatically playing radio stations based on playlists I have made after that playlist has ended. I don't want this! Sometimes I just want to listen to a playlist and then move on... I don't need to keep playing music (especially since I often listen to playlists while falling asleep- I don't want music playing all night). It's also starting the playlist radio automatically if I am listening to a playlist while offline, and then connect to wifi. It will stop playing my playlist, and start a radio station instead. Or if I had my playlist paused (if I got out of the car to go inside my house, for example), and then my phone connects to wifi, it will start playing the radio out loud- losing both my place in the playlist and playing music from my phone when I don't want to listen to anything! Is there any way to make this stop?? If it helps, I have Premium, not free.

I also have this problem with a playlist radio starting after the last song on a playlist is played. It is very annoying. I do not want spotify to automatically start playing the playlist radio without me requesting it. If any one knows what the solution was to this problem please post!


Same problem here, i was playing an offline playlist at night to fall asleep and when i woke up it was still playing radio. It had used up all my mobile data (i have a small data bundle) so my phone bill was through the roof. I want this gone.


Oh stupid me, they actually made a setting for this so you can disable it. Just take a look at the settings menu.


Go to settings, and scroll down to "AutoPlay" and turn it off. That should do the trick 🙂


Thank you for that it was driving me mad! From an iPhone it's in settings > playback > auto play at the bottom

I tried clicking on the playback button but I can't click on. It doesn't work. I tried quitting out of Spotify, deleting it and redownloading the app. I have the latest update that came out on Jan. 30 2017. 


The Playback, Social, and Streaming Quality buttons all do not work.
