Spotify finally added a Top Albums chart. Wow.
Spotify seems to be adding an actual local file support again. Awesome
Anyone else having issues this morning? Assuming it’s because they’re adding stuff like the post above states
Nvm working now
Did something change with the downloads? All my music that I had downloaded over the years is still in my library but instead of the green down arrow to mark that it’s downloaded, they all just have hearts and I have to redownload everything?
That's been happening to me every time I update the app. Every downloaded album disappears and I need to go back through and redownload.
has there been any explanation for this?
None. I've Googled and found a few Spotify forum threads with no fix. Their moderators usually jump in and say something along the lines of updating the app/phone OS and restarting your phone. No person ever says that fixes their problem. It's frustrating. Since I work remote now I always forget to update my offline downloads before a run, so I've been listening to the same 100 songs or so every run!
Wonder if it has to do with how old my phone is? I still have an iPhone 8 Plus. I can't think of anything else. The weird thing is, everything still shows up in my library, it's just undownloaded.
Yeah, same. I don't think it's a phone issue—I have an XR. I think it's an app issue. The "big business" in me wants to say they do it on purpose, so you get annoyed enough to just use cellular data all the time to listen to music when not on wifi. Also, I've always wondered how downloaded song plays count towards the play count—if they ping Spotify once you're back on wifi. I just gave up on keeping my downloads updated.
