Awesome! So this is why spotify continues to download for ever and ever and never getting complete. Well I have 1 more day before I leave the internet country for 6 months. Now I know the limit and will most probably resign my premium subscription. I would stay if the 3 devices is removed and totalling 10k offline songs one ONE device. Thank you!
I changed to another music streaming service. I tested a lot of them and also looked for limitations. There are none or the limitation doesn't hurt you (like 20.000 titles of your own music at Google Play). Now another service gets my money ;) Spotify is still good but the limitation is a no-go.
I need the vast majority of my offline playlists on my laptop and the second most on my iPhone (my husband bought me the new 6+ with the maximum amount of storage space because I simply have that many songs I want to take with me when I do go places). The third device on our account, his phone, doesn't need hardly any because I'm the music freak. This limitation is a big pain in the rear, and if Google or Rdio truly do not have such a small limit per device, I will be switching once I verify the price is reasonable and that he and I can both use the service decently. If possible, it would be great to be able to have more than one device online at the same time, too, because he is overseas right now. Even paying extra for some kind of family account so there can be more than three devices and two or more online at the same time would be amazing. We each have three or more devices we'd like to use the service with.
This is horrible. And enough to send me back to xbox music again. I just realised that stuff I had off lined was disappearing, presumably because I hit the limit. I'm on a plane, so my opportunities to get the albums I've lost and wanted to listen to will be limited very soon when we depart and I have to switch to flight mode.
Well after your input i started to switch over to Rdio myself, became premium and all to try it out for 30 days. Then i found http://resp.in to merge in my spotify playlists into Rdio. Unfortunatly, Rdio doesnt have the same variety of music as Spotify. There are many songs that couldnt be found or recognized. This is also a deal breaker for me. If i cant listen to my alternative music then there is no use to use Rdio.
Shame, but i guess i have to stick to the limit, no matter how much it hurts.
And the Rdio interface is years and years behind Spotify. Its so ugly it hurts my eyes, the pc client is so slow and the android app is just meh. We will just have to hope that Spotify kills this 3 device 2000 songs limit and just makes it 6000 limit for the whole account.
Problem is there really aint that many great alternatives to Spotify. At least for me that listen to a wide verity of music. Everything from local music of the Indian state Himachal Pradesh to some crazy tunes i saw when i was in Arambol of independent artists.
If you have a "normal" taste for music then Rdio would be my suggestion, other than that....spotify is the way to go =)
