My Question or Issue


once I have turned Spotify offline the home page will not load anymore. As a result I cannot get back online. I have to delete the Spotify app and install it again. After installation the same problem occurs. It doesn’t matter if I am connected to the internet or not, the problem is always there.



I tried restarting my phone and signing out of spotify from all devices, but I had to delete the app entirely and re-download it. This fixed the issue as it’s automatically online after download. I haven’t turned it offline yet in case it happens again.

My Question or Issue

I can't take the app out of "offline mode". I set my account offline and wanted to change this last night. Unfortunately, I can only see an activity indicator on the home screen. I don't have access to any other UI. This means I can't access the account section to disable "offline mode".

Status changed to: Under investigation

Hey everyone!

While this is being investigated, we'd kindly ask you to let us know your Spotify and iOS versions.

Issue first occurred yesterday.


I got the same problem too. And I already deleted the apps and reinstalled, but this happens again today.

I, too, encountered this problem on 7/9/22. A day later, I stumbled upon a solution that worked for me.


If you are stuck offline and can't access the home screen, try playing a song on one of your playlists that is NOT downloaded.


For me, doing this brought up a message that said something like "This song is not downloaded. Would you like to go online to play it?"


I chose "yes" and was connected back online with the home screen active.


I have not yet gone back offline to test whether this is a permanent fix or not.


Good luck!

Same as the problems mentioned here. It’s a hassle to delete the app, then download playlists & podcasts again to my phone. This happened twice already.
