No Spotify after Z5 Android 6.0 upgrade Spotify 4.8.1004

Regular
Today I got "automatically" updated to Android 6.0 on Sony Xperia Z5 (Android 6.0 > Core ver. 3.10.84-perf-g19d6d92 Buildnr.32.1.A.1.163) and PROBLEM = Spotify (ver.4.8.1004) ) DOES NOT START and leaves system message "No Storage Area Found-Check the device storage settings", But my SD card is present and has the directory containing Spotify's cache of my offline tracks present. This must be a Spotify app problem. So this is the 54th time of frustrating problems related to using Spotify - do I have to uninnstall and use another 18 hours to download my approx 32 GB of playlist in extreme quality that I use offline?

This has happened due to the change in how Andoid Lollipop handles permissions. I thinjm you may have to completely uninstall then re-install the Spotify app so that the correct permissions are applied by the system in order for the Spotiify app to be granted access to write to the SD card

Unfortunately from what I have read on Sony forums it looks like it's necessary, and it's Sony's fault 😞 Not looking forward to it either... on the plus side since Marshmallow apparently made Z5 much faster I hope Spotify will also stop taking 20-30 seconds to open.

Ok, this will go on forever then... About time for a "Autorestore Previous Offline Items to device"-function within the Spotifyapp!

That would be SO amazing. I've been installing, reinstalling etc. due to various problems and every time I have to spend half an hour pressing "Download", "Download", "Download"...

Thanks! My brain isn't functioning sufficiently enough today to figure out what to search for...

 

The idea doesn't stand much of a chance though, two (now three) kudos in a year 😞

Make that 4 now 🙂

 

But yes, when I openened it and saw the count it didn;t fill me with much hope that it'll survive. At least now there has been some activity so hopefully it'll remain open a little longer
