Hi, incase anyone is still experiecing this and the above solitions didn't help (I was in this boat half an hour ago).

The way I got it to work was by doing this:
1 - load spotify

2 - make sure wifi is on and connected

3 - find your playlist and turn available offline OFF

4 - close spotify fully

5 - re-open spotify

6 - find the playlist and toggle available offline back ON

 

That worked for me, hopefully it helps someone else out too.

 I managed to fix it on my end by allowing spotify.exe fully in the Windows Firewall.

 

1 - Click on the magnifying glass

2 - Search for "Firewall"

3 - Select the second option (paraphrasing: "Allow an app via Windows Firewall")

4 - Find spotify.exe (appeared twice in my case)

5 - Make sure both "Private" and "Public" (paraphrasing) boxes are ticked

 

Spotify then started the downloads on my iPhone (and Android tablet incidentally).

 

Hope that works for some of you too!

The issue is within the mobile app, not the desktop app.

Exactly, the mobile app crashed.

On my iPhone 6 it show, that I downloaded a few playlists (rather 1000 not 3333 songs) but when I try to listen to them offline nothing work!

I tried re-install it, clearing the playlists, allowing the cellular data, wi-fi only but nothing work.

 

Listening offline on mobile devices is the most important function for me and I feel that I don't get what I bought.

Everything started like 2 weeks ago, before it it work good.

Indeed. This was my problem. McAfee was running, as soon as I turned off the firewall the 4 tracks I wanted downloaded fine. Long live Spotify!

I have an iPhone 7 that seems to have somehow lost all my tracks that were downloaded and now just says waiting for wifi. I have no idea how to resolve, I have logged in/out and reset

I have a great solution;-
1. End subscription to spotify
2. Get free 6 month subscription to apple music

Sound as a best solution for now.

Spotify as I see even did not responde to the problem which is still happening.
