Hey Deanz, the storage space should become avaialble after flipping the Available Offline. Maybe try logging in and out or restarting your device after you've flipped the switch and seeing if the space becomes available then.

Figured it out
Delete the app - it removes everything but it's an awful customer experience.

I love the feature that you are talking about and it does seem to solve everyone's problems.  Unfortunately, the feature isn't available on all phones.  I'm on a family premium account and I have the only phone with this feature in the group.  I keep trying to figure out how to get it for the others, but am about to give up.  It should be available to everyone.

There is a downloads menu option available in some people's "Your Library" menu.  That is wonderful at managing your downloads.  However, it appears that not everyone has that feature available.  I am not sure why this is.  If you could figure out how to get this feature your problems would be solved.

Hello @Deanz, welcome to the spotify community!

Go to My Music and to any offline content (eg Playlists) and turn the Available Offline tab off.

Hi jeremygoh

 

Thanks for your help! So you mean resp. know that when I have a Playlist which I downloaded on my iPhone (Available Offline "On")  and I turn (under this Playlist) the function "Available Offline" to "Off" again, the storage of this songs will be canceled from my iPhone?

 

Thanks

Regards,

@Deanz Yeah, when you flick the switch off you have to give the app about a few minutes (and you can head to settings -> general -> usage) and you'll see that your disk space has increased.

Hi jeremygoh

 

Just now I tested that! I took a playlist and switched on the "available Offline" function, so I had this Playlist as offline songs. After that I switched for this Playlist the Offline-funktion to "Off" again but after more than 30 minutes the storage on my iPhone is still the same?!

 

Do I something wrong or what?

 

Thx,

Deanz

No, you didn't.  The problem is that the "solution" here doesn't work.  Turning the offline from on to off doesn't accomplish anything.  There's a similar thread now 4 years old here:  https://community.spotify.com/t5/iOS-iPhone-iPad/How-do-I-delete-the-synced-offline-files-from-my-iP..., and as you'll see, this is a long time bug with Spotify.  Do I have a better solution?  No.

You can only do that in PC versions on Spotify

Under "Library" the last choice is Downloads.  Click there and undownload it all.  Leave it streaming if you have the data plan.  That way you never have to worry about it filling up your Iphone.  Or just do a playlist, then download that.  When you are tired of that  - delete and create new!

There's no Downloaded at the end of the library on iphone...

This is a pain in the **bleep** of Spotify. I should be able to seee whats downloaded and just remove it all, whithout having to touch my library.
