I've found that when I'm in offline mode (say, in the car with mobile data turned off) that the Spotify app is less responsive than when I'm on wifi or data. I think it's a bit ridiculous that I have to wait 10+ seconds in order for my downloaded tracks to load in the app. I would think that since I have these tracks downloaded to my device that if I'm in offline mode, or have no internet connection, Spotify wouldn't bother trying to connect to the internet and should just show me the things I have on my device locally. Or at least try to connect in the background instead of making the entire interface a loading spinner while at the bottom of the screen it clearly says "Spotify is in offline mode" or whatever the message is. Like, I just want to be able to access my downloaded tracks without a hassle! That's why I downloaded them!

Hey there @1211098110,
Thanks for getting back to us 🙂
We can confirm that the app loses some functionality when offline, but it shouldn't be too bad. This seems to be a general performance issue and the app probably needs a bit more optimization for its Offline Mode.
On another note, it's great to hear that you enjoy Spotify that much, and rest assured, we'll make sure to pass your report and feedback on to the right folks. We're sorry we don't have anything better at that point, but hopefully with some future tweaks and optimizations this will get better.
