Aroo! Hello to my fellow dog lover!

Firstly, you could try using the Spotify web player, which allows you to access your account and stream music through a web browser. While it doesn't have an official offline mode, you can use a third-party extension like "Spotify Offline" or "Spotify Web Player Offline" to enable offline playback.

Another option is to use the Android app version of Spotify, which is available for download on the Google Play Store for Chromebooks that support Android apps. The app version of Spotify does offer offline playback, so you can download your music and listen to it without an internet connection.

If neither of these options work for you, you may want to consider contacting Spotify's customer support team directly to express your concerns and ask for assistance. They may be able to provide more information about the availability of offline mode on Chromebooks or offer alternative solutions.

I'm panting for news, keep me posted!

Engineer here. The problem with off-line is that it depends on a whole stack of technologies that is proprietary to Google. Those are built-in at Windows, OSX, and Android. But on Linux it's only implement in Chrome (not even Chromium), not generally reusable. We are the moment considering options for that. But mostly depends on Google being nice, and developing it on Linux for general use.

Hi
Spotify Premium in Chrome web browser does not have the "Listen offline" option. It's there and working in the phone app. I have ChromeOS Flex. You must know that the ChromeOS Flex system I have (version 120.0.6099.275 (Official Version) (64-bit)) is not exactly what the new Chromebooks have. You can install applications from the Google Play Store on Chromebook, i.e. Android applications. This cannot be done on my system. I supposedly installed Spotify, but it's actually a different Chrome browser window. And there is no About Spotify section.
There is no "Download" button on my computer (but I have this button in the application on my phone and I managed to download it playlist).
Regards
