Offline Storage on iPhone

Solved!

Offline Storage on iPhone

Does the Spotify App store offline songs on iPhone more than once if a song is on more than one playlist?

Also, what is the purpose of the Available Offline switch in individual Albums if they can't be listened to in that format offline?

 

Thanks in advance for any knowledge on these subjects.

Yes, if you have made an album available for offline use, each song in the album will only be stored once, even if the songs are in a playlist.

 

No matter where you download it for offline use (playlist page, album page, or artist page) it will only be stored once.

 

The Spotify app stores the song once, allowing it to be played offline, whether you play it from a playlist, an album page, or an artist page.

Thank you so much, Matt!

Do you know whether that holds true for Albums that have been designated "Available Offline" as well? Are their songs stored only once if they are also on playlists?
