Spotify won't download songs

Hi everyone,
I have just recently switched to a FP3, Android 10 and I’ve been having issues downloading songs in the Spotify app (I have a premium subscription). Instead of a green arrow indicating the succesful download, I can see a white exclamation mark. Neither playlists nor albums will download to my phone.
I’ve tried the following:

  • Restarting phone
  • Reinstalling the app (and deleting all data)
  • Signing off and back on
  • Checking the privileges of the app (access to everything)

Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

It sounds a bit like a problem you should contact Spotify about.
A quick search of their forum revealed this:
Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to have a solution for everyone. Seems like the problem went away after a while for the original poster.

Hi, thanks for your help. I will try reahing out to them, too.

It sounds like you have performed a clean reinstall. Dunno if this post here is able to help you out.

Just wanna add that you can also use tools to help you get offline music downloads to your phone. That’s how I usually do.

Found the issue, I reformated my SD card a few times, that did the trick.
I was surprised because Spotify was supposed to use the internal storage but I’m glad it works now.
Thanks for your help!
