[All Platforms] Setting for max Cache Size Allowance

The android version of Spotify currently doesn't have a setting for how much disk space the cache is allowed to take up, so it just keeps getting larger and larger until the entire drive is full. 

 

A music streaming app should not need several gigabytes of  drive space. Give us the option to cap this - getting real tired of getting told I'm out of disk space and having to manually wipe it.

There are just 2 votes left before the spotify staff takes a look at this Idea :)

I don't understand how this was not an option to begin with. Do you really think using someone's entire mobile storage free space is ok, Spotify?

In my version of Spotify, the "Clear Cache" opton was already implemented! Finally 👍

Hey Hubrrr, you are right! They added Delete cache under Storage in settings! Great. I guess as written this issue still stands, since they could add a max size setting, but this is probably good enough now for most of us.

Why is Spotify not able to handle the disk space correctly?!

It's really a pity, how Spotify does not improve their app.

Please implement this. Your app is spamming my internal disk space. And I start to wonder why I pay 10 € per month.

We can now erase the cache memory used by Spotify in Android without being disconnected. For me it's enough...  Do you use this feature?

Have a happy day ;-)

7.31 GB of 12 GB inter SD Card used by Spotify cache. Total free 356 MB!

Thanks for nothing!
