My Question or Issue

Hello!  My question is, if I pay in advance for a period of time (say 12 months) does that mean that I won't need internet access to my phone in order to maintain the ability to play downloaded music on Spotify?  I work on ships that go out to sea for periods of greater than 30 days with no opportunity to access internet.  After 30 days, all of my Spotify music goes away and this makes me sad.  My idea is to pay in advance but I want to make sure that this guarantees that my music will still be available for the 12 months that I paid for in advance even if I don't have the opportunity to connect to internet at all during that period.  Thanks!!

Hey @1227975689, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

You can listen offline if you have a Premium subscription. More info here.


You'll need to go online at least once every 30 days. This is so Spotify can check your Premium’s still active and count plays to compensate artists. If you don’t go online with Spotify at least once every 30 days, any tracks you downloaded for offline listening are removed from your device.


If this is something you'd like to see change, you can always create a new Idea about this here


Hope this helps!
