"You've discovered a premium feature" every time I try to save my playlists

My Question or Issue

For about a week now, every time I open the app or go to save ANY playlist, I get a pop up saying it's a Premium feature. I have the premium family plan, and had no issues in the past until now. On top of that, I was forced to change my password around the same time this issue started. How can we have this fixed asap?

Same problem/bug here. 

And, I can't download any playlists anymore.

It just tells me "You discovered a premium feature" and stays on "Waiting for download" for ever

Offline plays completely stopped.

Country: Turkey

Device: S10

---UPDATE---

Looks like I found the problem. I was about to uninstall the app, and I accidentaly saw that the "Storage Permission" for Spotify is disabled.

Turned on the storage permission, and everything got back to normal.

Downloads working and "You have discovered a premium feature" has gone for now.

This issue is far from resolved.

I've had a premium account for years, currently with a family plan, and I'm running into this message now when I try to listen to the latest single from one of my favourite artists.

Hi Petya,

I've done all of this already.

I'm running Spotify version 8.5.30.579 on Oxygen OS 9.0.9 (Android 9) on a OnePlus 5T.

Hey @metal_tank,

 

Thanks for the quick reply! 

 

Could you try running a clean reinstall again? This time with the help of this guide (step 4 is very important) to make sure your app is running on the latest version. 

 

After that please try enabling permission for storage option for Spotify. This can be accessed by going to Settings>Apps>Spotify>Permissions>Storage.

 

Let us know how it goes!

Hi Petya,

I've done a clean install & ensured Spotify has storage permissions, and this hasn't resolved the issue.

What else can we try please?

I'm also having this issue on my PC as well FYI. It's not showing up with the banner, but I still can't play the track

Hey again @metal_tank,

 

Thanks for being here and for trying out the steps!
