Load downloaded songs first on poor internet connection

Load downloaded songs first on poor internet connection

When you have poor internet connection, Spotify still tries to load your playlist from the internet despite it being downloaded. Only when you lose internet connection and the connection status changes to disconnected will it retrieve downloaded files instantly.


It would make the experience much more enjoyable if regardless of data connection status, downloaded songs would appear instantly and any non-downloaded songs would continue to load.

Hey there @tomekin


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. We moved your post from the Ideas board to the relevant Help board, where it fits better.


No worries, if you're not in a place where you can catch a fast connection, you can just switch the "Offline mode" on in the app settings and you'll be able to see and listen to instantly all your downloaded content. For more info, take a look at this article.


Hope this helps. If you need a hand with anything else, the Community is here for you.

Hi Eni,


That is quite a long winded solution to the problem. I still want the songs to load but would like the downloaded songs to appear automatically.
