Hey there @Swivelz!


Thanks for reaching out to us and welcome to the Community! We'll be happy to help you sort this out.


Could you try logging out > restarting your computer > logging back in?


You could also try performing a clean reinstall with the steps here to make sure that all old files that might be causing trouble are gone.


It's also important that you re-download it from the Microsoft store.


In case the issue persists, could try downloading the songs on a different connection and let us know your Spotify version?


We'll be on the lookout for your reply.

I've been having this same issue for a month or so now (PC, Windows 8.1). I have tried everything listed in every article and I am still getting the "Waiting for connection" notice on every playlist I try to make available offline. I have done full uninstalls, deleted the caches, changed the WiFi access point I am using (which shouldn't be an issue because my playlists are downloading perfectly fine on my iPhone and Mac Book). I have even tried changing where the offline cache is being stored between my SSD and normal HDD with no success. The only other thing I can think of is a full Windows reinstall, but that seem unnecessary and would surely have me consider switching to Apple Music or Amazon Music.
