Crazy data usage

Music Fan

Android 5.1.1

Nexus 6.

Music quality set to High (medium setting.)

Spotify using 200-250mb per day of BACKGROUND data.

Total foreground data was about 75mb.

 

75mb even seems high, since I spent maybe 60 minutes total streaming music over radio.

Removed and reinstalled.

 

Two songs played. A total of about 9 minutes.
App set to the medium setting, 'high quality.'
Foreground data: 9mb
Background data: 13mb
Total of: 22mb
22mb is pretty excessive for TWO songs.

 

9mb seems "about right" but what is the 13mb of background data?

I also have this problem.

 

I used 100MB just for a 45 minute drive home. Previously before upgrading to premium i might use 25MB. I have my streaming set to normal to use as little data as possible.


Over the last 2 days spotify has used 1GB of data. I have checked the cache and there is 1GB of files stored.


Does spotify download every song i skip even tho i have set it to not sync over cellular.

 

I do not wish to download the music i am listening to. All i want is the free version, without the ads, without the limit on skipping. I do not want to cache songs i do not listen to.
