OK. I get now that this is a “personal” streaming service and I won’t be able to stream to 2 devices at the same time even with premium. So how do I go offline on my iPad to listen to downloaded content while not interrupting my wife listening on the PC? The offline setting is under the playback menu and is not available if I am not connected and if I connect it takes over her stream from the PC. What gives with that?
Are you and your wife sharing one account? If so, you cannot both use spotify at the same time regardless of your on or offline settings. You'll have to have 2 seperate accounts. You could create a second free account to use in situations like these, to avoid paying for 2 premium accounts.
