My Question or Issue

Recently my Spotify app has been using cellular data to stream when I'm not connected to WiFi even though I have cellular data turned off for the app in my iOS settings. When I am not connected to WiFi the app does not go into offline mode and instead switches to data. I saw a former post on this topic that said the solution is to switch to offline mode manually when I am not using WiFi, but that is tedious and doesn't cover for when I lose WiFi connection and am not aware of it. In those situations the app is using data when it should not be. It seems like the Spotify app is somehow overriding my iOS settings to use data. It's taking up a lot of data usage so I'd like to know if there's another fix. I have turned data on and off again for the app and also deleted and re-installed the app and I am still having the same issue.
