Hi there @McDusty69,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community. Let's take a closer look into this.


To start with, can you make sure that you don't have Offline Mode enabled? You can check how you see that in this article under Switch on Offline Mode.


We'll be on the lookout for your reply 🙂

Take care!

Live, love, laugh and listen to music 🙂

I see how that is a solution to my problem, but it doesn't fix my issue. I'm just wondering why something that's downloaded onto my phone needs internet to be displayed on my phone when I can just turn off my internet to see it. I shouldn't have this issue to begin with

Hey there @McDusty69,


Thanks for the reply.


Offline music on Spotify is meant to be played only in Offline Mode. Once this is switched on the app doesn't look for a network connection and loads downloaded content from the Spotify cache. If Offline Mode is disabled the app will search for a network, be it WiFi or mobile, and this will make content load slowly. This is because the app will always try to stream content when online, even if the songs or podcasts are already downloaded, in order to get the latest version of any playlist.


Hope this clears things up 🙂

I do know how to turn offline mode on and how it solves my issue. But I don't think I should have to go offline for local files to be viewed on my phone
