[Mobile] Proxy Settings on Mobile

As previously brought up here, the Spotify app for mobile devices needs proxy settings like the desktop version or the ability to use the system proxy that is configured in the wireless connection.

Personally, using my mobile device at work forces me to use my mobile data for podcasts and music streaming, which has recently racked up the monthly data cost of my plan. Having the ability to authenticate through a proxy to a network alleviates this pressure on my data plan (and yes, this is ok with my place of employment).

system proxy settings only works with wifi. to mobile data transfer proxy does not apply.

in addition, proxy settings apply to all applications without exception.

Every other app on my phone is able to respect the system-wide proxy settings and run just fine on my work network. It's not clear why Spotify doesn't play by the same rules.

As above, Proxysettings is needed. Really bad not to have the the opportunity to use it. My Spotify doesnt work at the place I need it to....
