Part 3: FAQs About Listen to Spotify Offline on iPhone

Q1: Why does my Spotify not work offline?

Spotify only allows Premium members to listen to music offline. So, if your subscription expired, you won't be able to access the downloaded songs offline. If you have been a Premium member, just check out if you turn the Offline on.

Q2: Why won't Spotify download my songs?

Check that you have a Wi-Fi connection in the top-left corner of your screen, and that the connection is strong. If you do see the Wi-Fi symbol, but songs are not downloading, go to the Wi-Fi section of your phone's settings and make sure that the network you are connected to doesn't have any error alerts next to it.

Q3: What are the limits on Spotify free?

Free users can only skip 6 tracks per hour. The only exceptions are certain Spotify-curated playlists accessible from the homepage: if there's no shuffle symbol next to the name of the playlist, you can skip tracks within it without it counting towards the hourly 6-skip limit.
