[Mobile][Radio] Offline radio stations

I've seen this idea submitted before, but unfortunately it's inactive. I use Spotify Premium and my car stereo allows me to like/dislike tracks, but only in Radio mode. The big reason I use Premium is because it allows me to download songs. However, unlike Google Play Music, Pandora, etc. Spotify doesn't allow me to download Radio stations for offline use. Please add the ability to download Radio stations. Thank you.

 Hey guys, 

 

We recently changed Radio so you can now download your tracks and listen offline.

Thanks!

Marked as new idea, which is a repost of this inactive idea.

A platform to embrace music should also support the user to embrace the music. Or did I get wrong, what's Spotify is about? Perhaps not the users, but only money? But without users, no money...

I think the lack of this feature is also a major driver of wanting an easier way to remove songs from a playlist:

How-do-I-remove-currently-playing-song-from-current-playlist

 

The only workaround for having offline stations is to make a playlist with some songs to seed it and then just add whatever related songs it suggests.

Unfortunately by doing this they took away the ability to upvote or downvote songs. Why can't we have both?

This is a great start! Thanks for adding it! Oddly it only seems to work on some stations, not all of them. It also is not an option on the "Stations" app. But thanks for implementing this!

I got here from this post that was marked as a duplicate of another post that led me here.  The problem is that the first one is not a duplicate, similar yes, but only in part.

 

The original idea is just to have automatic downloads.  When you like a song or add it to your library it will automatically download next time you are on WIFI.

 

That idea is different from this on in that it's not about just choosing to download radio.  Please revive the orignal idea.
