How much data is used?

If I'm on my 3G connection.

 

Is it resource heavy?

 

I have a 2GB per month data allowance.

Hi, and welcome to the community!

 

I would suggest you sync your songs offline for mobile, as yes it is quite data heavy and uses app 3mb-5mb per song generally; so on a 2GB data limit it will use all of it up quite quickly!

Hey :) 

 

2GB is not a lot, especially if you are streaming all the time. At the normal quality 2GB is only enough for just over 400 tracks per month which really is not a lot. 

 

If you have Spotify Premium, you can download playlists for offline usage when you are on a WiFi connection and then playing those tracks whilst on 3G wouldn't use any data (in theory).

MarkeyMark101 - If you sync your music to be available offline, you won't need to worry. You can read more about it here.

Aha thank you.

 

So I have pressed "available offline". Does this mean I have to play every track first before they become available offline or will they download in the background?

 

My worry is if they download in the background while on 3G and waste my data.

MarkeyMark101 - They'll download in the background. We'd recommend doing it over WiFi, that way you don't need to worry.
