My Question or Issue

For months now, the Spotify app has been extremely slow to load pages. Even if it's the Downloads page in offline mode. No matter what I'm trying to open, it can take a few minutes to load. This is just unacceptable to me. How are users supposed to jump in the car and go if they can't select a song or podcast quickly, even *from their downloads*. To me, downloading music or a podcast is supposed to be the best way to avoid having to load anything, yet here we are. 

 

I have done a hard re-install of the app, I've cleared my cache, I've restarted my phone. I don't have much downloaded, but should it matter that much? When I use Google Play Music it doesn't take this long to load anything, let alone when I'm in Offline mode, and I had tons of music downloaded from that app. 

 

If anyone has any fixes for this, I'd really appreciate it. Having used other apps with Offline modes, this just seems unreasonable.

Hey there @CozyGhost,

 

Thanks for reaching out here! 

 

If the app is still slow to load, follow these steps: 

  1. Do a clean reinstall.

  2. Enable Permissions for Spotify: Mobile Settings> Apps> Spotify> Permissions. Allow everything you see there.

  3. Check if Spotify is not selected for battery optimization: Mobile settings> Apps> Spotify> Battery> Optimize battery usage> select top All (not optimized for apps)> Spotify> disable.

  4. Restart the phone.

Let us know if that boosted the performance of your app 🙂
