Hi, have you been able to successfully download any songs on these playlists? Or does it get stuck when when you first start to download anything?

"Waiting to download" is a sign that dsektop spotify can't communicate with your android. Does the mobile show under "Devices" on the desktop client?

Try these steps.

 

  • Temporarily disable all firewalls, antivirus programmes and other security programmes
  • Check that UPnP is enabled on your router
  • Make sure your mobile is connected to the same wireless network as your desktop
  • With spotify running on your mobile, check to see if it now shows under devices

 

If that doesn't help, please shout but I suspect that it's simply some security thing on your desktop which is blocking access from your mobile.
