Peter c'mon that doesn't answer this annoying question of how do songs become unplayable offline when they were playable offline earlier that day?
It's like Spotify keeps re-syncing or re-downloading for no reason. OK so there is enough space, everything is working just fine. The complaint is with the Spotify App Peter and how it was programmed to operate. This is not a problem of user error. There is no reason if I'm paying my premium that Spotify can just randomly tell me all of my songs are unavailable for no reason that I am responsible for. Are they playable offline or not??? This is an annoying core feature of Spotify. Can you at least tell me why this is not clearly explained when you are encouraging the user to purchase premium in the beginning?
Example: I turn my phone on and fire up Spotify and songs are unplayable when they were just 4 hours ago. I turn on the internet, songs start becoming available randomly. Internet goes out, no more songs are available, only the ones that downloaded while internet was available are playable. I have plenty space, all the songs were playable 4 hours earlier and still would be now if I could connect to the internet. So how is this possible? It seems clear to me that premium user or not, you are tethered to the internet if you wanna use Spotify?

Hi I have a couple playlists on my phone and some songs play and some songs don't when offline. Its the same songs that don't play when offline. But says they are all downloaded and ready to go. My phone has 2GB of free space.

Check to see whether the songs are "downloaded" or "saved".

Hello there!

 

Hopefully you can help. For some reason I can not get the local music files on my computer to sync to offline mode so that they can be played on my phone etc. I have switched both the playlists that contain the mp3 files to "download for offline mode." Both my phone and computer are connected to the same internet and I have made sure that the folder that contains the mp3 file is selected in the local files tab in Spotify, any help would be greatly appriciated!

No I've tried it myself I've tried it many different ways it doesn't seem to work and no one can help me get this problem resolved so I believe it's a problem with Spotify or maybe they just don't want us to get the music offline sorry I can't be more help
