Re: Android app using too much data? Post details here

To which platform will you move? Looking for something comparable. Can't  no longer bear this ignorance of spotify. I don't mean only the data usage; it's also the landscape mode, the problem with external SD cards and so on. But hey, we should be happy, the last update included a notification for expired sessions. yay!

Re: Android app using too much data? Post details here

Ok, so I'm back from my holiday. Still no fix. Still stock answers from the forum staff. 7 months after the problem was reported. Spotify still appearing to have the work experience kid on Android development duty.

 

I'm out. Subscription cancelled.

I'm also thinking about cancelling more and more. Here in The Netherlands there is an alternative: Deezer, though I'm not sure whether this will be an improvement over Spotify.

Trying Grooveshark at the moment. It's cheaper but the music quality isn't great and the interface is probably worse than Spotify's old one! Deezer and for me Rdio look like good alternatives - I could very easily switch back to Spotify if Android development and bugfixing would be given higher priority... :-)

Re: Android app using too much data? Post details here


Spotify on my mobile phone is also consuming hugely exorbitant amounts of data. I thougt that downloading all of my playlists to my phone and avoiding streaming music of 3G/4G would help, but it didn't. From November 7-27, Spotify has used 2.42 GB of data. 2.38 GB were from background data. What is Spotify doing in the background? This is really frustrating, as I am on a capped data plan. I get 4 GB per month, and more than half of it has basically gone down the drain because of Spotify.

How much data is being used by the Spotify app?

About 2.5-3 GB per month, virtually no streaming over mobile data

 

I hope you guys can get this figured out. I love Spotify more than any other music service. I would hate to have to cancel my Premium subscription.

How much data is being used by the Spotify app?

10MB but my 3G was OFF and it still consumed data via 3G

and even though I switched to 'off-line modus' it consumed data while connected to 3G

so you cannot switch the data consumption off?

 

Do you have any screenshots you can attach to more clearly explain your issue?

Re: Android app using too much data? Post details here

today i bought spotify premium from telekom, now all traffic by spotiy will not count to my data plan so i dont have the problem any more, but thats not a good solution for the problem. The battery draining by downloading not necessary data will stay.
