WTF??! I cannot download my Playlists!!!

I just got that premium package a few days ago and i keep on trying to download my playlists, but it won't work. I am doing this via my wifi at home. No matter, which playlist i try, it will only download to approx. 30%, than it stops an does nothing more. I can also only start downloading 1 playlist like this, if i try to download another one at the same time, it will only show 0% and nothing happens.

 

I am having a german version on my mobile. An the settings menu is quite small - i cannot tell the programm, where to store the data. Anyways, I have 770MB free on my phone, and 12 GB on my card, so there should be enough room....

I already uninstalled the program and brought it up again, but this would not work either.

 

HELP!

Its been doing this download thing for a month. There are a few problems with the software, songs will just stop for no reason, downloaded content disappears, and it tells me I'm using more than the devices (my phone only). I'm canceling my account. Hopefully there is a service that has better software.

Hey folks, this is crazy problem!

 

I reported it to Spotify for you.

 

Watch this space for updates.

 

Cheers and have a lovely autumn!

 

Workaround: Connect your Android to your PC via USB and start Spotify. Then download your playlists using Desktop app in Devices section.

Yeah I have premium and I'm really pissed that I can't keep my downloaded songs. I used to be able to download and listen offline. But in the past week, while I could download them, as soon as I go offline and shut down spotify, the playlists are undownloaded. I had to re-download them everytime I was at a wifi destination. Really a pain. Today, I can't download anything it's just at 0 percent.

Hey there,

 

At least for some people this works. I tested it for you now.

 

The problem is that new update is released with bug. So when you download this app, ICS 4.1 can't download content to Offline anymore - it just keep downloading at 0%. Yes, it's bug. With Android 4.0 or lower like 2.3 no problems like in 4.1. The main thing what's going on here is that Spotify updated something that affect only ICS 4.1 and Offline content. For now no fix to this, however I reported this bug to Spotify.

 

Keep fingers crossed for update. I can confirm, this will be fixed in future.

 

For some this USB thing works:

Please bear with Spotify, they start soon working with this bug!

Please bear with Spotify, when they are working hard to improve Spotify. :)

 

No need to suggest "kiss a butt", "get better coders" or something like this.

 

Just sit down, open your Spotify and enjoy. Spotify surely fix this bug. They think it's annoying too!

 

 

Nothing can stop the dance! Handsup!
