[Connect] Option to deactivate Spotify Connect

I want to have the opption to turn it off. Please fix this, i wan't to listen to music and still be online without connect starts.

Please fix this. 


Jag vill gärna kunna använda spotify på en telefon utan att den andra telefonen ska börja dra batteri för att ni kommit på denna tjänst utan en avstängningsfunktion. Då ni är Svenska som startat detta hoppas jag på att ni accepterar svensk text. Och en svensk meny till spotify hade varit trevligt. 🙂

Hey everyone,


It seems that this idea ended up in the wrong board accidentally, so we're bringing it back.


We're keeping the Not Right Now status, as we don't have any immediate plans to implement this. As soon as we have any new information to share, rest assured we'll check back in here.


Take care.


How is this still "Not Right Now", it has been over 3 years and 34 pages of people commenting about this and still nothing? What have they been working on cause there has been almost no new functionality in the app in the past couple years. All they have done is cosmetic tweaks, while they are pretty nice, how about focusing some of that effort on fixing this fundamentally hated feature so people will actually enjoy their experiences using this service. The only reason I still use Spotify is because there hasn't been a great replacement yet, but now Deezer is starting to get pretty good and even Apple Music is pretty good if you have apple devices. So if nothing is done about this soon, I'm probably going to move to Deezer. From what I hear Deezer actually cares about their customers and listens to their wants and needs, and has actually been adding requested features and fixing reported bugs and issues over the past year, unlike spotify.


Now that Spotify wants an IPO, it's this dismissal of customer concerns that gives me pause to invest in it. I get that Spotify doesn't want you to listen on two streams at once on two different devices, but there are ways to solve that problem without being autocratic.


Hi Spotify Team,


This kind of feature is very annoying and the worst part is that I CAN'T DISABLE IT!!! 
You know, this kind of development seems very poor conceived! 
Please, I ask that you come up with an update that allows me to use the app ONLY on the devices I want and not being connecting randomly (and even miles away) to any device! 


Thanks / Obrigado / Gracias


So, it is now 2018, and I am still unable to turn off this unwanted feature. I would be fine if it only connected when I asked it. But the fact that devices can fight over what song is playing is complete BS. I have been using spotify for many, many years. And this "feature" is making me want to cancel my premium account.


Can you please make this into a priority? I can't turn this ability off, and for some reason Spotify on my phone likes to prioritize other people's devices instead of my own. The only way I've been able to turn off other people's devices on my phone when I'm trying to listen to my own music is to go into offline mode which is not ideal.


Please make this very intrusive function optional


Is there a big financial reason for you that you would require connection to other unintended devices?  We're still paying the fee but don't want other devices to connect.  Please just be honest and tell everyone if you have a reason that you will never fix this and provide an option to turn it off.  We know it is technology easy and it is insulting to everyone's intelligence the way you are ignoring the question or saying "not right now."  


Since you won't let me vote I am voting via comments. Yes, please make connect an option that I can turn off. Its a privacy and security threat that I don't agree with. Its enough to make me want to cancel my premium subscription.


Please, give us the option to turn this off. I have premium, and it's very irritating that when I'm listening to music on my computer at home, and then I go work outside and turn on my phone, it turns off of the computer. Sometimes, I leave the music on for my kids who are under ten, so, no they aren't in need of their own account. Sometimes it just switches when I open another device, or it changes my song to what I was listening to on that device, and I didn't want it to. One day my 4-year-old asked Alexa to play a song via Spotify, and I was suddenly blasted with Big Block Sing Song through my computer headset instead of from the Echo. Just please let me turn off the computer connectivity to other devices when I don't need it. It can't possibly be that hard to add the Not Right Now button to the desktop app. 


 Terrible feature and even more terrible response to everyone's request to fix it.  I'm done.  8 years of spotify premium this is just an annoying breaking point.  What a waste of resources on a phone.  I don't need my phone to be drained for something I'm doing on my PC. That's bush league stuff.  Fix it and maybe I'll come back.
