My Question or Issue


My Spotify will now not download podcasts to my device. It will download songs, just not podcasts. I’ve tried restarting my device and reinstalling the app but no improvement. It just spins it’s wheels after I click the download button. Thanks for the help.

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 checking for any pending updates to Spotify as well as using another network connection 🙂

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!
