Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

 

I'd also recommend updating to macOS Catalina 10.15 if possbile 🙂

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

Hi,

 

It's still happening. Spotify version is 1.1.16.522.g55a4b852.

I tried updating but it's failing. Also can't update to catalina now because of company policy. Please suggest.

Hey @niraj112358,

 

Could you try updating to 1.1.17?

 

Also, to be clear it downloads the songs you made available for offline listeting when you open the app, right?

 

Thanks 🙂
