I dont want to stream across all my devices when playing something

Hello,

 

I tried searching and googling but didnt find anything that would answer my question, or anything where someone would even ask.

 

Basically, is there a way to disable streaming across devices? Without completely signing out or going offline.  I was at work the other day, and have spotify installed both on my tablet and my ps4. And back at home my siblings started playing stuff on the ps, and it started playing on my tablet as well, except turning the sound down I couldnt really do anything.

 

Even right now when I play something on my PC it starts to play on my tablet. Sometimes it causes short slowdowns and otherwise is a bit annoying, wanted to ask if it can be disabled.

Hey @AnotherPlace! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

That doesn't sound cool.

 

It shouldn't play on both devices by itself. Maybe your siblings want to prank you or do this by accident. They need to choose your tablet with Spotify Connect in order to play music on it.

The only way to prevent that is either going into the offline mode or telling them to stop playing through your iPad. ^^

 

Let me know if that helps, thanks!

Peace
