[Android] Playing offline search result not possible


[Android] Playing offline search result not possible

Casual Listener

0. I have downloaded a bunch of songs which play just fine with playlists etc.

1. The search, when offline, returns a list of downloaded search results - no problem (apart from all the duplicates appearing)

2. When I click on such a search result, nothing happens. Which is strange, since, as I said earlier, playing offline songs via playlists or even just putting it in the queue and skipping the current song works without a problem.

-> I suspect a bug there

Hey @Nico_Weio, welcome to the community 🙂


Sorry to hear this!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next 😊

 Unfortunately, my tablet has the same issue, even after a reinstall. (I didn't want to delete the downloads on my smartphone yet)


My tablet uses Android 6.0.1 and Spotify armV7.

My phone uses Android 7.0 with the same Spotify version.


Also, I forgot to mention that as soon as the internet connection is re-established, the selected song starts playing.
