Hey folks, we haven't had any other reports of this happening for users. We're closing this for now but please let us know if you experience this on your device. Thanks!




I do confirm the issue on a Lumia 930. Actually, it's worse..I have to confirm the issue for my phone and the Lumia 930 of my wife as well.


The problem I see is, that eventhough, we use 4G connection with no data limit, SPOTIFY acts as it would be OFFLINE (which is wrong considering that with 4G datastreaming is no issue itself and must not be interpreted as OFFLINE I think.)


Help would be apprechiated.


BR, Alex
