Operating System: Android 9
I would like to access songs on Spotify offline on my Android car radio. Unfortunately, it is not possible to hook it up to my home Wifi due to distance/signal strength.
So I would like to know the following:
if I download songs to an SD card at home on my mobile phone [or PC?], would Spotify, given I put that card in my radio, detect these songs and able to use them?
If not automatically, are there any steps on the PC I could follow [i.e. manually copying and renaming folders] to accomplish my goal?
Since I never had storage issues whatsoever, I don't even own an SD card, so I can't try right now, which is why I'm asking beforehand.
If anyone could be of assistance, any help would be much appreciated!

Hey again, @exitsign074
Don't worry. You don't need to worry about it!
Actually, when I told you about the encryption, that was the information I've received from our knowledge base. There is no possibility that you transfer the archives between devices because Spotify has on its own a system of encryption that just allows that the files be executable on the same device where they were downloaded. That is the reason why when you perform a clean reinstallation of the app, you need to redownload the songs and playlists again or even because you cannot play these media files on another player app, per example.
And, when I told you about the in-car media system, I don't know how your car works, but usually, the car doesn't have an integrated storage system that allows that Spotify files it on the car. (I don't know if I'm being clear, at all hahaha). If your car has an integrated storage system, perhaps you should be able to download your songs and store them on your own car.
Be sure that you can count on us always. And if you think I wasn't too helpful for you, let me know and I can escalate it to another person. No hard feelings! 🙂
