My Question or Issue

I'm trying to play with my settings.

 

I want to use Spotify as such: use Wi-Fi at home with the highest quality possible without lag interrupting my streaming.

 

So I have Automatic set on WiFi streaming, with Optimize listening (Auto adjust quality) turned on.

 

However, when I'm outside using Mobile Data, I want it to play at the lowest possible setting, to save as much data as possible...

 

So under the Cellular streaming, I set it to Low, and I turned off Download Using Cellular.

 

All good up to here.

 

Then I saw Data Saver, and I did some research that it only affects you when you're using Mobile Data...

 

So I turned it on. And then all the settings under Audio Quality are gone (even the settings under WiFi streaming.

 

Also, the canvas was disabled EVEN IF I'm on a WiFi connection.

 

So the question is: Does Data Saver make your quality play 24 kbit/s even if you're using WiFi? Because it did disable the canvas, which is one of its descriptions available in the app.
