Hey there @Germain543,

 

Thanks for posting about this here in the Community!

 

We'd first recommend trying a clean reinstallation of the app following the steps in this Spotify Answer

 

In general, there are a few possible reasons why your downloads might be removed:

  • You've downloaded music to more than 5 devices. You can double check this here. If you see a device listed more than once, we'd recommend following the steps from the Spotify Answer above to perform a clean reinstallation of the app on that device.
  • You haven't been online with Spotify at least once in the last 30 days. 
  • Your Spotify app needs updating
  • Your SD card (if your device has one) has become compromised (dislodged, corrupted, etc.)
  • The content's no longer available on Spotify.
  • Tracks in some playlists are updated regularly, meaning tracks might be removed. 

Let us know how you get on! We'll be right here if you need more help.

 

Have a lovely day 🙂
