My Question or Issue

My Spotify has recently updated and my offline online toggle in the notification area of my phone no longer works. It will turn itself back online if I open spotify or just even reopen my notification area.

 

This used to work fine, I could have my Spotify constantly in offline mode and then if I wanted to switch online just swipe to my notification area and turn it back on or vice versa.

 

Screenshot attached of the notification tile I am referring to

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about this!

 

It seems that the quick tile feature isn't supported across all Android devices that can run Spotify. Unfortunately this means that this is not something that Spotify can look into.

 

What we can suggest is that you try a clean reinstall of the app, and that if that doesn't work you toggle Offline Mode from within the app itself.

 

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any other questions ;)

Peter-- this is not a solution. First, I've used the quick toggle to switch between offline and online mode for two years and across 3 phones. It is the primary way of utalizing the only feature of the paid subscription that's meaningful.

 

Additionally, I have a Pixel 3 (designed by Google, makers of Android, to be the most Android-functional phone). By definition, the phone utilizes every feature of Android. It's not that the phone doesn't work with quick settings, it's that this newest build of Spotify broke a very important feature.

Also, I'm not sure how or why my first comment was deleted, but it's not appreciated. I detailed the issue quite well, with all the relevant information to help you guys identify and fix the bug.

Same problem here, looks like last update broke the functionality. This is really annoying.

The toggle itself is gone... if i were to use the offline mode in spotify itself it would just lock my account out...

Hey,

I got a SAMSUNG GALAXY A5 with Android 8.0

 

I reinstalled the Version which still worked.

With the Version 8.5.6.673 its working fine.

 

After the new updates i had problems with the switch/toggle in the status bar.

The toggle could turn in the offline mode but couldnt turn it off. Because of that i had to go into the preferences and turn it off manually. The toggle appeared to be "not in offline mode" even when i was so when i press it nothing happend. I did a clean reinstall and deleted spotify a couple of times but it did not work.

 

With latest version 8.5.9.737 the toggle was totally removed and I cant us it anymore
