How to Enable and Disable Auto Play on Spotify
Nowadays, music streaming services are pretty much unavoidable, and most of them have some sort of auto play option for songs playing in the background.
One of the best parts of using Spotify is that you can play your music at any time, from anywhere! But sometimes, you might have to leave the room or get some other task done, but still want to continue listening. Or maybe you want to skip through songs when your friend or relative calls, without them having to keep saying hello. You don’t want them to have to listen to the opening bars to your favorite song. Spotify allows you to pause/stop music playback at any time.
What is Spotify Auto Play?
One of the most recent developments in music streaming platforms are the ability to play songs automatically after you start listening. These features aren’t new. People had been experimenting with this for years, but Spotify seems to be the only major platform to implement this feature. Most of the time, people just skip songs, but they do listen to music. The feature allows you to continue playing without having to press stop.
