Hi,

 

I already saw some topics about this problem that Deezer starts automatically when connected to a bluetooth device, but I don't seem to solve this.

 

When I connect my BT headphones to my Android device (Oneplus 6), it automatically opens the Deezer app and resumes the last song/podcast I listened to. I disabled ‘Android Auto’ and reinstalled, but it didn't solve this. I also have Spotify on my phone and that does not autoplay.

 

So, please let me know how to disable this autoplay. Thanks.

Hey @Amazon62 

Apologies for the delay in replying. I actually asked the question to our devs (an option to prevent autoplay via BT) and was waiting for a reply.

This seems to be an Android feature - please see here for more info and get back to me with your thoughts!

Nobody?? It is really annoying. When I want to connect my headphones to my computer, the phone starts to play.

Hi Rudy,

Thanks for the link, but that didn't work for me (maybe it works for in-car bluetooth). What I did first was to uncheck ‘Play’ in notification bar settings so Deezer won't pop up when connected. That didn't work so I also removed the Deezer widget. Doing both, it won't autoplay again. Deezer will not show in the bar anymore, that is the concession you have to make.
