[Mobile][Other] Offline Mode Toggle easier to access

Change the position of the Offline Mode button.

Put it on the home screen or at the very top of the setting menu so that we don't have to search for it whenever we want to toggle from online and offline.

Hi! I think the offline toggle should be more accessible. right now its in the settings > playback. I think it would be better if it was in the main menu! Theres space at the bottom for that, and would save time, because i use it quite a lot, and I think that might save a lot of people time too.
I use ios, but ithink its similar across other smartphones too.

Marked as new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search. 😉

Thanks Marco! Thought I did put it under new ideas, thats what I meant anyhow!


Please, please update! This would be a BIG improvement! Thank you.

 why isn't this already a feature. how hard is it to get this? i have to enable/disable offline mode multiple times a day. Not everyone has unlimited data.


this really is frustrating enough to change to another music service. 

Just wanted to give this topic a bump, and add that I like to use offline mode on my smartphone in my car, but that's only when I remember to switch in on while I'm still parked. Hunting for it in settings > playback while driving is a bad idea, and having easy access to the toggle in iOS/Android would be highly practical. As it is I usually switch back to my iTunes library to avoid eating data/getting into an accident.
I also would absolutely like a quick and easy way to toggle offline mode. In some other feature idea posts similar to this one, I saw mention of a homescreen widget/button which would be my ideal way to do this. A 1x1 button to toggle the setting would be very simple and quick to use.

Agree with this request. Could you please look at integrating the option to toggle on/off Offline Mode via 3D touch on the app icon?




PLEASE. I switch between modes very often, and it's confusing for new users, such as my 60 year old dad, who think its' too complicated to switch back and forth.
