That's strange, because mine works perfectly. It sounds like the podcast is playing, but you cannot hear it. Turning on airplane mode will turn off your bluetooth connection with your airpods. Once in airplane mode, go to settings and turn on your bluetooth connection, then reconnect with your airpods. Then play the downloaded podcast. If it doesn't work, try listening with your phone's speaker to see if it works. If it doesn't work, I have no more answers for you.

Yes I'm aware of the work around. Unfortunately I frequently receive work
phone calls so I can't put my phone on airplane mode. I'm in a steel
building with poor cell and WiFi signal. The video podcast gets very choppy
and has all sorts of issues in this situation.

If you don't have a good mobile connection or you want to save data, you can download the episodes while on WiFi and turn on Offline Mode.

Hope this helps. If you have questions, we are here for you.

I'm confused.

 

The only "solution" is to download while on WiFi, then turn on offline mode?  This really takes the simplicity out of listening to a podcast.

 

Sorry, this won't cut it.  I'm done with Spotify podcasts.  Other platforms aren't this nuanced.

I know this comment is getting censored but you better listen to your users for once. Fix the damn video bandwith investing a little more in infrastructure instead of a grammy´s knockoff. Listening the Joe Rogan EXPERIENCE  on Spotify is an AWFUL EXPERIENCE . If you had the wit to convince him to become a Spotify exclusive by 2021 you better take a good hard look at the technical requirements of having 9 million subscribers that already watch him live on Youtube and you better start getting to know his fanbase. Don´t buy and then kill the golden egg goose Spotify.

 

I´m seriously rethinking why the **bleep** do I have 6 premium accounts with you guys. Peace out.

This solution is incredibly unhelpful. It's a work-intensive, hacky workaround that only somewhat solves the initial issue. Not helpful.

 

It should not be terribly difficult to add an option not to stream video. You guys literally added a video player just for Joe, (difficult). I really hope this button makes its way into the next update, as I don't usually watch the videos and I have limited network bandwidth.

 

Also, your voting system is a nice idea, but it's not an excuse to not listen to people. Voting would only work if a large percentage of the user base used it, so you're not getting a good idea of what your users actually want. Instead, actually pay attention to what people suggest and sift out the bad ideas yourself. As a developer, It should not be hard to identify a good idea.

btw this isn't a solution at all for the issue of battery, only data.

There needs to be a "Download Audio Only" option available for the JRE podcast.

I'm not going to download a massive video file that takes 10-15 mins and fills up a huge chunk of my phone's storage every time I want to listen to an episode. I don't even watch the video 90% of the time.

This is an enormous oversight and it's driving people away from your platform. I never had a problem listening to JRE for the past 7 years, but now I do thanks for Spotify.

Hey there @Dtoppy,

 

Thank you for your reply in this thread.

 

You should be able to find it under Data Saver in your settings.

 

If you can't find it, it would be great if you can provide us a screenshot of what you can see.

 

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.

 

Cheers!
