Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? Sorry if this may sound a bit repetitive but if that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app by following these steps.

 

I'd also recommend using the Sign Out Everywhere and Remove Offline devices from your Spotify account page. Try to update to iOS 12.4.1, too :)

 

Here's an article for some more info on that.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

I assume this is a bug and will have to wait until the latest update

Hey there @jckinnick,

 

Thanks for reaching out in the Community regarding this. 

 

There's a newer version of the app available, so we'd recommend following the steps below to make sure you're rocking that latest version:

  1. Head here and click Remove all devices
  2. On the home screen, tap and hold the Spotify icon until it shakes.
  3. Tap the X symbol on the icon.
  4. Open the App Store then search for and install the Spotify Music app.

That should do the trick! 

 

However, please note the following: 

Let us know how you get on :)

Hey again @jckinnick,

 

Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

 

Keep in mind that you can only download music and podcasts to a maximum of 5 separate devices as mentioned previously. Further, you can only download a maximum of 10,000 songs per device.

 

If your iPhone is the 6th device, you'll need to try these steps:

  • When you download to this additional device, the device with the earliest downloads will automatically removed from the Offline devices list. The tracks on this first device will no longer be downloaded for offline listening. 
  • Before you download to the additional device, manually remove a device from the Offline devices list. The tracks on the device you've removed will no longer be downloaded for offline listening. 

If the issue persists after that, we'd also recommend making sure your iPhone device isn't jailbroken.

 

Further, since you mentioned that this worked after following the steps to update the app, we'd suggest making sure that Spotify is set as an exception for any cache  clearing or battery optimizing apps. Once you have, try a quick reinstall of the app one more time and check if the issue persists.

 

If it does, it'd also be helpful if you could share some screenshots of the error message you see so we can take a closer look. Just make sure that no sensitive/private info is displayed.

 

We'll be keeping an eye out for your reply :)

Hey @jckinnick.

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

Can you let us know what happens when you try to download another album on your device? Do the songs download at all? 

 

It's currently not possible to see how many tracks you have downloaded for offline listening. Make sure to vote for this Community idea to implement this feature.

 

We'll be looking out for your reply!
