Allow us to disable car mode unless we choose to turn it back on

I have to shut off car mode while I am driving because the interface is not set up in a way that I am use to intuitively navigating through Spotify thereby making it more dangerous to use. It turns on automatically without giving us a choice to disable it. I find it very distracting, inconvenient and unsafe. No version of “New Car Mode” can remedy this. I would prefer to the choice whether or not to use it BEFORE I start driving.

Hey @DoomNation,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We've moved your post to the Help board as it better fits here.

 

Note that you should be able to disable Car mode permanently by following these steps:

  1. Tap Home.

  2. Tap Settings.

  3. Under Car mode, switch Start car mode automatically off.

We hope this helps.

Apologies I take it back. Look like this problem has since been fixed

This doesn't work. Car mode is always forced on my Toyota Camry. I want to completely disable it. The start car mode automatically option is not there.

Hey @Prodo

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community!

 

You mentioned that the option itself doesn't appear in your settings right?  Can you check to see if the same will happen on another device? You can ask a friend or family member to try on their phone. We would suggest clearing your cached files, logging out and in twice in a row. That way you'll force a sync between your app and the main servers which should cause the setting to re-appear.

 

Hope this helps out, 

Keep us posted.
