My Question or Issue

I download music and have selected option to play offline enabled.

However for some stupid bizarre reason it forces me to connect to wifi first in order to start the playback. Once it's started I can go out of wifi range (and even then wifi off) and it will happily continue as offline but I cannot simply start it offline. Crazy bizarre and stupid...... Spotify that is, not I.

 

I have tried the uninstall, re-install tricks but all to no avail. Offline is not really offline.
