I just received this from Spotify.



Hi,

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

We are extremely sorry to hear this and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

 

We would like to tell you that the feature to save your music on the external SD card is missing from our latest Android app and we are aware of it already. We would also like to tell you that we are working hard in order to reinstate this feature to our Spotify app in our next update, pretty soon.

 

In the meanwhile, we would request you to to create some space on the internal memory by shifting your saved data (except Spotify) to the external SD card, so that you won't face any problems using Spotify.

 

We know that it is an inconvenience and we are really sorry for this once again and promise that we will come up with the solution soon.

 

During this time, we appreciate your patience.

Kind regards 

 

Love 

 

Spotify Customer Service - Cambridge

Yes, I'd expect a fix in no less than 5 months.

This (see below) works but just to clarify sure you specify the sdcard name as well as the subdirectories. For me, it was "/mnt/sdcard-ext/Android/data."

It's unbelievable, but it seems there is no option in the new application to do this. However, I managed to fix it.

 

1. uninstall the new application.

2. download the "old" application: http://download.spotify.com/android/SpotifyAndroid.apk https://rapidshare.com/files/2999426550/SpotifyAndroid.apk

3. rename the file from .zip to .apk

4. install the application (make sure you have "install from unknow sources" enabled on your device

5a start the application, log off in case you get logged on automatically.

5b start the application, click on your phones menu button, press "reset spotify" en press ok.

6. still at the loginscreen, press the menu button again and select "select SD Location"

 

For a more detailled instruction on how to set the SD location, go to http://www.spotify.com/se/help/faq/mobile/android-how-do-i-store-offline-music-on-the-external-sd-ca...

 

7. Verify if your offline files are downloaded to the correct location using a file browser

8. go to Google Play en upgrade your Spotify installation.

 

Enjoy!

Can we expect any official solution from the developers?

This worked for me (Samsung Galaxy SII).  Thanks much for posting the old app, which by the way is sooooo much nicer than the new one.  The new one is as close to useless as you get.  Really a pain to use on a mobile.

Solution!
