Spotify keeps redownloading my songs everyday


Re: Spotify keeps redownloading my songs everyday


I was facing issues with this for a month now. Also, this is just specific to "Samsung Devices".


You can check if the "Auto Delete Unnecessary Data" option is "ON" in your case. I was randomly checking the phone and found that Samsung deletes my cache, log files and un-necessary files at midnight (EVERY NIGHT) which is the reason why my Spotify downloads the song EVERY NIGHT!


I turned it OFF and BOOM. No more re-downloads!

I hope this solves your problem.

Hey @Dexu5,


Thanks for jumping in here with the solution that worked out for you!


If anyone continues to have this issue, these steps might help: 


  1. Click on Remove All Devices here.

  2. Do a clean reinstall. Note: After reinstalling, you will have to download your music for offline listening again.

  3. Make sure Spotify is set as an exception for any cache clearing and battery optimization apps on your device.

After that you should have no issues with your downloaded songs. 


Let us know if this helped 🙂
