My Question or Issue
It's really frustrating when I'm listening to music & a friend shares a link to an album/artist/song & when I click the link (just to take a look), Spotify stops what I'm listening to & starts playing that album/artist/song.
I have looked around & can't find anything to fix this. I'm honestly so annoyed that this is an actual "feature". Please help me turn this thing off, it's really ruining my experience.
This also happens sometimes on desktop.

Thanks for the post!
Opening a link to a song on mobile will result in the app opening and playing that song.
There is no way to switch this off manually from the Spotify app settings.
Hope you find this info helpful. Don't hesitate to reach out again if you have questions.
