My Question or Issue

 Spotify uses (a lot of) data when connected to wifi. This is a very old problem and still not fixed. I often exceed my data plan because of this issue. sure, it helps to switch the settings on my phone and in the app to 'offline' and 'no cellular use', but sometimes, I do want to use data with the app (when there's no wifi). I just don't want to have the app use data when I am connected to wifi!

Why is this still not fixed! This month is not even halfway through yet and I have no data left!

Hey @lukasr1 


You could turn down the quality of the streaming down, if you have it set to very high, or you could try uninstalling and reinstalling Spotify. I have heard that some people have tried reinstalling it and it did lower the amount of data usage.


Keep me posted!

Thanks, but I am not looking to lower the usage. Quality should be perfect, and free of course, whenever on wifi that is
