[Mobile] 'All Offline Tracks' in Main Menu

It would be really easy and smart to have a single option in the main Mobile menu that says "All Downloads," and to allow users to filter this list by album, artist, label, compilation or playlist. 

 

So much easier than the current method of having to find downloads via routes you already created. More importantly, your current avenues for seeing what has been downloaded does not always reveal all downloaded content -- even if it has been downloaded and marked "available offline."

Don't forget android! This would be a very nifty feature.

Exactly! This would make managing disk space a lot easier!

I agree!

 

Offline songs should be easily accessible in the Menu. Right now, both "online" and "offline" songs are treated equally in "My Music" but offline songs should be prioritized. If I'm specifically saving an album for offline playback, then I should have a quick access to it, otherwise I would just "save" the album like I normaly do.

I have recently created a prototype which is similar in idea to this, you can see ther FramerJS prototype live here

I like you prototype! It's a step in the right direction! Personnaly, most of the time, I'm not offline, but I want to save bandwidth since I only got 1GB/month (welcome to Canada). I think offline songs should be prioritized in "Your Library" when you are connected to cell service.

Maybe an easy implementation of this idea would be a "downloaded" filter in the search tab.

 

Many times i want to search songs (previously downloaded en 320kbps) without wasting money/data in the mobile internet conexion (even with less bitrate) or directly with no internet connection i guess...

 

Now to get this i have to put in offline mode and go back from settings to search for downloaded songs. But if i want to listen or add to the queue a non downloaded song, i have to go settings again, turn off offline mode...

 

I think that would be easy becouse with offline mode the title inside the search tab is "downloaded songs", but this section dissapear in online mode.

 

I usually use spotify on ios devices

Can you put me in the 'a' group of the a/b test so I can get the Downloads feature?

I had the Downloads Hub on my IoS device until the update today removed it.  This feature was very useful in places with no signal like in the Paris Metro, where I spend more than 1 hour per day for my commute.  This feature made it very easy to find music I could actually listen to.  Now I have to do lots of scrolling or setting an offline filter.  The other nice part of the Downloads Hub was that it showed all my downloaded Albums and Playlists in one easily accessible page.  I can understand this feature isn't that useful for most people, but for those that don't always can be online, this was such a useful addition.  Oh well...

Spotify - it makes no sense to remove the downloads folder.  Why would you take away something that is offers convenience and works perfectly fine?

100% agree with previous comments.....this was my #1 favorite feature on the app!  I'm in NYC and underground on the subways all the time, which forces me to use my Spotify app primarily in offline mode.  It's now much more challenging to get to my downloaded music.  PLEASE bring this feature back!!
