Haven't the people at Spotify HQ heard of the word 'delete'?

"Undownloading" doesn't actually delete though, the tracks remain in your Spotify cache for a period of time incase you accidentally undownloaded the playlist.

Delete implies remove the playlist, undownload implies remove it from offline mode (ie, the opposite to 'download'), therefore it makes perfect sense.

But yes I agree "undownload" isn't a word but I'm struggling to find a suitable unambiguous alternative. "Unload" is as close as I can get. Anyone else?

This does sound a tad ridiculous. Does it use the word "Download" in order to grab it for offline mode? On my computer, Windows desktop, using Spotify Unlimited, a menu button says, "Available Offline." I would imagine the the alternative to this is a toggle menu item. Here is a mock-up screenshot because I can't make my songs offline. ;)

 

 

Yes/no?
