I have gone on holiday to a remote location for 8 days of relaxing. Cell reception is non-existent other than 1, maybe 2 bars right at the end of the jetty. I’m on day 2 and have been listening to my large library of downloaded songs across a few different playlists.
Knowing there is no service at the house, I have been keeping my phone in aeroplane mode unless I come down to the jetty to send and receive messages.
After coming down to the jetty to message home briefly while playing music, I went back up to the house to continue reading with my music and after 10 minutes, I notice one song just keeps repeating. I check Spotify to find all of my downloads other than that one song are now no longer downloaded, including local files.
There is no way of re-downloading the files given I’m in the middle of nowhere with patchy 3G at best. It usually takes a few hours connected to my home fibre network to download all my usual playlists whenever Spotify decides to do weird stuff like this.
Now I’m left with no music for 6 days when these things should just work! I admit, it’s not the end of the world, but it’s super annoying!
