Android: Improve streaming by preloading next song(s) to avoid gaps

Hi!

 

As mobile devices have usuallly a internet connection that is not so good as a normal PC (less good WiFi connection by design), it would be great, if the mobile app would preload the next song(s).

 

I have actually often big gaps between two songs, if I use streaming, even with a not so bad WiFi conenction. That issue I do not have twith my PC (LAN) and my notebook (WiFI). Also I do not have this issue, if I just play downloaded songs for offline use.

 

So I assume, that the Andoid edition does not preload, but starts to stream the next songs just, if the it started automatically by Spotify. As Spotify knows the next planned songs to be played, it would be possible to preload them and avoid these gaps of several seconds up to one minue of silents.

 

So please add preloading of next to be played songs to Android!

 

Thanks
