Surprised that it does not do this right away. I am always near the storage limit of my phone and like to rotate the offline albums, and so I find it very frustrating that the data is not immediately removed after turning off "available offline".
1. How long does it take for the data to be removed?
2. Is there a way to force the data to be removed, for a specific album?
Annoying isn't it? At the moment the way it works is that the cache will continue to build until the storage had only 10% free space. The only way to clear it manually is to clear the entire cache which means redownloading what you still want. The developers are aware that this is an issue, hopefully they'll do something about this in the future

If they did that intentionally thinking it wouldn't matter, not very wise since it takes more than 10% of free phone storage space for apps to update, in addition to the obvious problem of not being able to switch out music.
