My Question or Issue

I am listening to music via my Phone connected to bluetooth speakers. As long as I can think there is a Web Player (Chrome) connected with my phone, that I do not know or can turn off. Recently however the webplayer seems to stop whichever song I am playing and starts some random Playlist/Artist. When I switch back to what I want to listen to it takes mostly less than a minute for the webplayer to interfere again.

 

I tried to pause the song that the webplayer is playing. However, it automatically unpauses and keeps playing after 1-5 seconds.

 

When I start playing music on my Laptop and spotify-connect to my phone it works for some time (maybe 30 min) but at some point the webplayer regains control and starts playing that same artist.

Seems like the technlogy has finally taken over the world. Does anyone have ideas?

 

Thank you for any help!

James

Same happens for me for days now... Spotify Account is logged into via Facebook. Disconnected all the devices, set up 2-factor-authentication, removed all known devices - it's still happening. Always plays some generic cover-art playlists to drive revenuee i guess!?

Hey @user-removed,

 

I can assure you Spotify doesn't do that, have you made sure someone doesn't have access to your Facebook account?

 

Let me know 🙂

Just as a final update from me: It worked. Account is secured and unwanted webplayers are no longer playing.

Thanks for the help!
