Repeat Enabled Automatically When Connected to Car

Device

iPhone 7, always latest version of iOS and Spotify

Operating System

iOS 10

 

This is an issue that was discussed for months, and finally solved back in April. But it seems with the latest update, it's back, and it's driving me nuts even more this time around. Here's the old thread, which is now closed.

 

When my phone connects to my car, via Bluetooth or AUX, repeat is enabled automatically, the second the connection is made. This happens every single time, without fail. I don't ever want repeat enabled, so this is a major nuisance for me. Once it's enabled on my phone, it caries through to other devices.

 

I've gone through several rounds of troubleshooting over the months via this community, direct support, and Twitter support. It is not an issue with my device or my vehicle, it is a software issue. It was resolved for a while, and now it's back.

So Spotify is just going to ignore all of us having this issue? Is that how you treat "Premium" users?

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

Apologies for the delayed response, we just came across this thread. We'd appreciate it if everyone experiencing this shares the make, model, OS version and exact Spotify version on the device they're using. Make sure to also include the connection method you're using in your car. 

 

Keep us posted. We’ll keep an eye out for your reply.

Maybe this is the first time you've heard of it, but it's been brought up with support on multiple occasions spanning 2.5 years.

 

I've had 3 different iPhones in that time and the issue persists. Currently have a 12 Pro. It was fixed for a short time, but reverted back. As the original post states, it happens with any connection to a car.

Hi! This is still happening. I'm on an iPhone XS on iOS 13.5, but have
experienced this since at least iOS 12. The issue has been persistent
across ALL Spotify versions (I am currently up to date). I connect to
Microsoft Sync, in my car.

I think Spotify might consider this a feature; it is not! I have Autoplay disabled, so it should just stop when an album is done.

Please fix.

Have the same problem in my car. All playlists automatically switch to loop if my iPhone 7 (latest ios) is connected to the car (Golf 7, 1gen Composition Media).

It is really annoying 😑

 

Spotify! Do anything!

 

Edit: What cars do you have?

Ok...nothing?

It comes with all cars I have connected. Volkswagen, Ford, Audi.

 

Well, then I think spotify need my money anymore.

 

Apple Music is also nice 🤷‍♂️
