Downloaded Spotify songs for offline listening are missing!

  • It’s probably because you didn’t go online with Spotify for 30 days! Spotify wants you to access it online at least once in 30 days, else any music track that you have downloaded to listen offline is removed from your device automatically.
  • Check if your Spotify subscription is active or not. Offline access to music is the feature especially for Spotify Premium users. When your Premium plan expires, you also lose access to any offline music, podcast etc. that you had downloaded with the Premium account. You can stream those tracks from Spotify online.
