Same issue for me on an Motorolla Moto G 3rd Gen, I just upgraded to Android 6.0, and despite re-installing the app, the downloads are still stored on the internal memory instead of the external sd card.

EDIT: 

The following solution worked for me on a Motorola MotoG 3rd Gen phone freshly upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, however it does not seem to work on some brands such as LG/Sony/Samsung (to confirm):

This fails to work anywhere on any Android.  

Anyone have a current solution??

Also, there is NO OPTION in Spotify to change download location as they claim.

Was this an old feature?

I have 128 GB External USELESS storage. 

SIGH. . .Android. . .so bad.
