How to set Spotify to stream over WiFi only?


I want to stream songs over WiFi only and not mobile data, and I don't want to keep flipping some options Everytime I'm not connected to WiFi.


Please let me know how to do this. I don't know why this simple feature was so difficult to find.

Hey there @rrlamichhane,


Thanks for posting and welcome to the community!


At the moment there is no setting so you can stream only on WiFi networks.


However, if you're on Premium, you should be able to set your app on Offline Mode. You can do that on your Android device by following the steps here:


  1. Tap Your Library 
  2. Tap Settings 
  3. Tap Playback.
  4. Switch on Offline.

 If you'd like more information on how to reduce your Internet and data usage, we'd recommend checking this support site article.


On another note, if the option to stream only on WiFi networks is something you'd like to see, we'd suggest heading in our Ideas Exchange and posting it here.


Also, if you'd like more information on how the Ideas Exchange works, make sure to head here.


Hope this helps clarify things 🙂
