My Question or Issue

I recently had to move my music over to my SD card as my internal storage is getting completely full, there is NO WAY TO DO THIS IN APP so I had to reinstall the app and hope it automatically detected my SD card.


I was then able to redownload my songs onto my SD card but now whenever I restart my phone, Spotify ignores the SD card and instantly starts downloading music onto the internal storage. This means I have to redownload spotify every time I restart my phone.


I have seen similar issues from other people and I'm completely lost as to how such a basic problem hasn't been fixed and as to why the ability to pick where you store music has been REMOVED as I have seen other people choose between internal and external storage in previous versions, Netflix is able to do it flawlessly so what gives Spotify. WE ARE PAYING MONEY FOR THIS
