[Android][Running] Android Cache management

When using Spotify on an Android phone, over time, Spotify cache fills all the space available to it (several GB). After storage is filled, I need to delete all Spotify data from my phone, then log in again. This makes Spotify freeze several times, and takes half an hour altogether. This happens once about two weeks on a 16 GB phone (Huawei P8 Lite). Storage management features cannot touch Spotify caches.

 

Please develop the Spotify mobile app to do one of the following:

  • Make Spotify cache available for third party cache management apps (e.g. the one shipped by the phone OEM) to be deleted.
  • Limit Spotify cache to a reasonable size (< 1 GB) at all times.
  • Make a setting that allows an user to limit cache size.
  • Make a button that allows users to delete the Spotify cache without the user being logged out (or Spotify crashing)
  • Make the cache deletion experience less painful. (Delete cache button -> progress bar -> Done, please log in again -> Log in activity)
