When you stream Spotify song, album, artist or playlist to the end, it will auto-play similar songs and never stop. By default, this auto-recommending feature will be turned on and you’ll get unlimited songs coming up on your queue. It’s one of the great functions on Spotify to explore songs you might like and expand your music library. But if you find it irritating, you can turn it off and there’ll be no extra song played after you reach the end of the playlist.

Next up, I’ll be showing how to turn on/off Spotify Autoplay on different devices and a bonus tip to help you get Spotify Autoplay tracks.

How to View Spotify Autoplay Songs

When you have your Spotify Autoplay on and reach the end of the song or playlist, there’ll be several songs added to the playing queue.

If you’re using the desktop app, you can click the Queue on the bottom left of the interface.

If you’re on the mobile app, Spotify will automatically make a new radio based on songs in your playlist and start playing songs from the radio.

Can I view and listen to Spotify Autoplay offline?

Technically, you can’t get the access to Autoplay feature without an internet connection. Since Spotify recommends similar songs based on your playlist and it requires the internet to know what you’re listening to and generate songs for recommendation via its algorithm. So it won’t work without the internet. But you can listen to Spotify offline with songs that are originally in your playlist though.

Despite Spotify Autoplay finds a way to know what people what to listen to, there might be some glitches when you use this feature. Many Spotify users complain that the Autoplay on Spotify desktop and the mobile app doesn’t work from time to time, music just stops when they reach the end of the song or playlist. And no matter how they toggle the switch to turn on the Autoplay, Spotify still won’t keep on playing songs.

Earlier I would listen to a song that I liked, and a radio of that genre would start once the song ended. Now, I have autoplay on but even if I press the next button, it won't play similar songs. It just stops. I have the latest version of the app. - - Spotify user from Netherland

Or some users still get the Autoplay feature when they have turned it off.

How to stop Spotify Autoplay? I did a search for this topic but nobody had really found an answer yet. There is a setting to turn off autoplay in the Spotify app, but Google Home doesn't acknowledge it, apparently. When I request a single song, it plays a random song right after it ends. Has anyone figured out a solution?- - Spotify user from Reddit

Apparently Spotify still doesn’t find ways to fix these problems on Autoplay, and these glitches could be irritating for some users. But don’t worry, here’s a way to bypass these troubles.
