Hi, I'd like to know how to turn off spotify connect, it is not a function I like to have turn on automatically when it detects other devices in the network.
Many thanks

There is currently no way to disable Spotify Connect I'm afraid to say. However it should only start playback on another device if you explicitly select it to. Is this not the case for you?

You shouldn't have been able to do that before Spotify Connect either. Spotify only offers single user accounts, so you can only ever stream on one device at a time on each account.

The short answer currently is you can't.

thanks Peter, is there a plan from Spotify to make us decide whether or not we want it?

this funtion doesn't work for me, now my active devices are constantly connecting, which i think is not battery friendly. and if i have to go offline then that defies the porpuse of having online library.

 

thanks

A choice!? No! Spotify wont let people choose for themselves. It's more like: We do what we want, take it or leave it.

 

An other example is when they change the layout and inserted all this empty space between every playlist and every song in a playlist. Or that you no longer can use Stars. Or that they removed the 'New Playlist' option locaed above the playlists (though this has been resolved now that the 'New Playlist' position is fixed above the play controls. Or that the for no reason whatsoever moved the volume control from the left side to the right (OK, I use <Ctrl> + <Up/Down>, but still. It's a meaningless change.

 

I'm gonna upgrade to one of the beta versions.
