[Android Automotive][Radio] Offline Mode

Isn't it annoying when you are driving around in your new car, playing music from Spotify and it suddenly just stops? You are might driving over mountain roads with no internet connection and no radio connection and you are forced to listen to the awkward silence, knowing that you will not get internet connection in at least an hour.

 

My question is then why doesn't Spotify in Android Automotive (in cars like Polestar 2) have an offline function, just like on the android and iOS phones? I would suggest an idea of implementing offline mode to be able to download music playlists so you don't need to listen to the awkward silence when you have no internet connection to listen to your music. I hope I'm not the only one thinking about this, and I hope there can be a solution for the problem.

Only 1/2 my commute has 3/4G. Although I have a family paid for account-  I will need to stream music from my phone or switch to You Tube music when my new car arrives next year. Come on Spotify!

Totally! I was hoping this would be available by default given that covid vaccine 5G network hasn't been that reliable.

"you are forced to listen to the awkward silence, knowing that you will not get internet connection in at least an hour."

 

The silence can be perceive as a music too i think.


For no internet connection problems, feel free to use the Spotify feature which let you download music in order to hear it without internet connection.
