Automatically Play Next Track or Song in Spotify

When you play a track or song in Spotify from the search results window, Spotify won't automatically play the next song. Here are some tips to play the next song automatically.

If you’ve been using the free version of Spotify, you’ve probably noticed that when you play a track or song from the search results window, Spotify won’t automatically play the next song.

Unfortunately Spotify is using this feature to differentiate between their paid subscriptions and free subscriptions.

The only way to enable this feature is to upgrade to one of the paid Spotify accounts.

Before you do that, there are a few workarounds in the free version that will help you avoid this problem.

Methods to Automatically Play Next Song in Spotify:

Tip: To select multiple songs in Spotify, you can hold the CTRL Key (Command Key on Mac) and click on as many songs as you’d like or select a range of songs by using the Shift Key

    1. Add Songs to Queue

Select as many songs as you’d like in the Spotify search results, right click on one and select Queue. The songs will then be added to your personal queue which automatically plays the next song after one finishes.

    1. Star Songs

Select the star to the left of as many songs as you’d like to add them to your starred list in Spotify. The starred queue automatically plays the next song after one song has ended.

    1. Add Songs to a Playlist

Select as many songs in Spotify as you would like, right-click on any song, mouse over “Add To” and select or create a playlist to add the songs to. When you play the songs from a playlist (listed on the left side of the application) the next song will automatically play after one has finished.
