Downloaded tracks keep changing to waiting to download.

Downloaded tracks keep changing to waiting to download.

Started happening in the last few weeks I haven't changed anything in that time.


Again and again my downloads change to waiting to download and are stuck on that. I reboot my phone and all the downloads are back as before. 


It's happening in the middle of listening even when I have Internet connection. I am not using Spotify on any other devices.

Have you recently bought a new mobile phone?


Go to the following path on your android device:

Settings > Apps > Apps > Spotify > Permissions 


Then allow "storage". Close and restart the spotify app.

These steps made it worse. I followed them and now I can't download songs at all.
