Delete cache only (Android app)

Hi!

 

In the Android app I would like the possibility to delete cache without deleting the settings at the same time.

System Settings->Apps->Spotify->Clear Cache

 

In other words, this is build into Android.

Hi!

 

The build in cache cleaner in Android 2.3.6 does not seem to work that well with Spotify. (It's found under Settings->Applications->Manage applications->Spotify.) Even though I have listened to a lot of music the cache is reported as 0.00B. I guess this is te reason that there is a cache cleaning function in Spotify in the first place.

@neofob My instructions were for Android 4 ;)

 

It's likely you have nothing cached. The only things that are cached are downloaded tracks :)

So you're basically fine with the cache cleaner in the Spotify app but just want to keep your personal data when clearing the cache?

@Premify I think that's what the OP is saying yes, although the button in Spotify is designed to erase everything so that offline tracks can go in the right place and Android has it's own cache clearing system anyway.

This idea requests an option in the Spotify Android app to clear the cache without deleting the personal data (settings, etc)

Losing all settings and account data each time you delete the cache is very counter-intuitive and a major hassle. Please use Android's inbuilt cache system

Is it really that hard to store the song data into the cache? It's basically just changing one or two lines of code, right?
