I recently purchased an S21 along with Bluetooth earbuds. If I am listening to something on any other platform, i.e. TikTok, Facebook, Instagram and pause those platforms, Spotify automatically starts playing. It happens all the time, even if Spotify has been closed. I have tried turning off autoplay in the Spotify app, but that hasn't worked. I'm at my wit's end with this issue. Any ideas?
I have this same issue when my phone connects to my Outback. Immediately plays Spotify even if I haven't opened the app in a few days.
Have the same issue it's incredibly annoying
Was so annoying. On my phone changed app settings - spotify - battery to restrict background activity. If that doesn't work, like on my tablet, go into device care - battery - background usage limits or sleeping apps on phone. On the tablet open deep sleeping apps and add spotify to the list (plus sign at the top right). On the phone it should be just sleeping apps in battery - settings (3 dots) - sleeping apps and add spotify. Again, app settings - spotify - battery - restrict background activity should be all that's needed on your phone.
