How do I disable that #$%#$% Autoplay

Yikes, when I first encountered this thread that started over a year ago, I thought "surely Soundcloud has fixed this egregious problem by now", but nope. Not being able to turn autoplay off makes it embarrassingly inconvenient and crappy. Also, potentially speaker and ear damaging if the next song is quite loud. Just have a big obvious button so people know how to turn it back on if they really want this feature - you don't have to hide the option inside preferences.
I'd also like to add my name to the list of people requesting a way to prevent autoplay.

I'll be looking for an alternative platform.
dudes just share your stuff on clyp .it and use soundcloud as a link to your profile...

I am fed up with Soundcloud bs.

This "feature" has been requested 2 years ago! to write a code for it is MAX half an hour..... they just messing with u ppl.

Hey BlkCruelt,

Sorry to hear you're not enjoying the continuous play feature. The intention of the feature is to allow you to explore SoundCloud while continuously listening to sounds from your Stream. Please rest assured that the tracks that play will relate to tracks on your Stream and your 'Likes', they won't be totally random. It currently is not possible to disable this.

This is a lie. The music that is played in NOT related in any way. Upload a Christian song and tag it and the music that comes after it is ALWAYS the same songs, and they have dirty mouths. Very offensive language. Give me a break!. I just signed up and I am already ready to leave. This is why you are failing.
Please disable autoplay, dont become facebook and other b//sh// that force to see what they want

Disable autoplay nextup station right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Try this:

1. Press ‘q’ to bring up the “Next up” list.
2. Click the “Clear” button.
3. Turn off the “Autoplay station” control.
4. Press the X control to close the list.

This will do it, but only temporarily. If you refresh, or even click to a new track, the “Next up” list refreshes as well and you’ll need to go through the steps again.
WTF??? Came here from YouTube because I thought this is a music people platform. Crappy autoplay is like mainstream bullshit radio playing music for people who just want some fluffy background noise and not music.

Also thought about upgrading in support of the hard working artists. Autoplay is no hard work :(

Will switch to somewhere else.... and stay with Spotify
This "feature" effing blows chunks.
The idea that a feature that force-feeds you stuff, and that even if you turn it off switches itself back on again, can be 'to allow you to explore SoundCloud' is totally wrong-headed. It is annoying beyond description.
It seems that if the auto play can't be disabled, youtube might be a better platform to upload songs. Youtube does have the option to disable auto play.
Ok, this does it for me, I never had a problem with this on the desktop as it just kept playing songs from the same artist as I were listening to.
Recently it start playing random bullshit that does not interest me at all- and initially I noticed this on the android client, but now I see it's the same for the desktop.

So after about 5 years as a paying member I decided to move else where and terminate soundcloud subscription, this is absolute bullshit.
Soundlcoud this is extremely simple

Everyone is happy to listen to the additional artists you suggest*

IT MUST BE CONSENSUAL. If it isn't then people are not happy. Many of them in fact will be angry

Many many more than you will be aware of or who ever came to visit this thread

This is such utterly basic human nature that it hurts the brain to try and comprehend your reasoning.

You are actually humans, right? Or you've at least met some? Does your CTO have a brain-slug? Has he been drooling a lot lately?

Joking aside, whose benefit do you imagine such a half-arsed policy is in aid of? Yours? HOW? Think it through, goddammit.

* n.b. it helps if the algorithm is passable. Yours isn't. It sucks hairy donkey balls
