Cache Offline Tracks

Occasionally, when I am using Spotify on multiple devices, offline access for one of my devices gets revoked. I normally just mark the playlists for offline use again, but Spotify downloads all of the tracks again, meaning that I use around 600MB of internet.

 

This is unnacceptable, as 600MB is a lot, and it takes ages to download, especially on my measily mobile broadband connection. This happens on both the desktop and mobile clients.

 

So my idea is that the clients shouldn't redownload tracks - they should keep them there until they are manually deleted, so that people don't have to download them again.

 

I did search, but couldn't find a duplicate. Sorry if it is 😕

They are deleted to make sure you are not using more than 3 devices for offline use which is part of their agreement with record deals.

I guess Matt is right, if they just cached and reloaded instantly that the 3 device limit doesn't really apply does it? You could just constantly cycle through all of your devices.
