How Do I Switch from "Offline Mode" to "Online Mode" on my Mobile Device?

I am having a recurring issue.  Randomly my Spotify app, on my Droid X, will go into Offline Mode.  I have 3G up and running and cannot find an option to switch to "Online Mode".  Does it exist, or is Spotify failing me?

Can you not disable it in Spotify > Settings > Offline Mode?

There sure is. Go to "More..." in the lower right corner and select Settings - There should be an option called "Offline Mode" or "Force Offline" at the top. Here, you can toggle online and offline mode.

I am having the same problem... When I toggle the "Offline" check off, so that I can operate in online mode, nothing happens.

Hey!

 

You might want to try installing the Preview version of the Android app right here.

This happens to me on occasion, and I've found that if I log out of the Spotify app then log back in it clears it up. Hope it helps you too!

Despite having 'Download over 2G/3G' set to On my Spotify on an Android mobile didn't attempt a connection this morning. Turning this setting and others off then on didn't cause it to connect. However, when I used some other data service on 3G (I used a web browser) it caused the data connection to start, and Spotify promptly went online too.

Hmm - that's pretty odd. So basically, as soon as another app opened up an internet connection, Spotify followed it and connected too?

I am having this problem and there is no "More" button in any corner! I tried going to Preferences but I couldn't get it to go online!

I have become a premium member today and have tried to play my playlists offline but it says my offline licence has expired. What does this mean? And how do I resolve it? Please help
