Playlist won’t update unless I have the app open

Newbie

Device

iPhone X’s

Operating System

iOS 12.0

 

As stated above, my playlist won’t update unless I have the Spotify app open and I’m under “you’re library” AND the phone is unlucked/screen is on. 

I have to set “auto-lock” option to “never” and set the phone down. If I move away to another app/navigate to home screen, the playlist stop updating. 

 

HELP, anyone. Please and thank you!

Hey @Jalonzo6022, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

 

If you mean for the songs downloading yes Spotify needs to be opened and app being on focus so the songs can be downloaded to be used offline.

 

You can learn more about that here.


Hpe it helps 🙂
