Spotify is currently working on a new playlist that will automatically download recently played songs to your device when your internet connection drops.
This information comes from the platform’s CEO, Daniel Eka, who posted a screenshot of an upcoming feature called Offline Mix on his Twitter account. Details are sparse as Ek doesn’t mention any other playlist details, but there are a few clues. First, one of the intended use cases of Offline Mix seems to be flights where phone signals are basically non-existent. Secondly, you will be able to download hours of music to your smartphones. An image provided by Ek shows that the service can store up to three and a half hours of offline content.
It is now possible to download songs from Spotify for offline listening. The main difference between the two is that the current method requires you to manually download songs one by one while this new method removes all the hard work. Basically, Offline Mix is an enabled version of Spotify smart download Music from Youtube. It’s a tool allows the YouTube Music app to “automatically download up to 500 songs”, which can then be listened to anywhere, connected or disconnected.
The many possibilities of Offline Mix remain a mystery. We don’t know how many songs people will be able to download or whether a Spotify Premium subscription is required. It is worth noting that several Twitter users claim to have received the function. One person even complains Spotify didn’t download most of the songs in its playlist. While it is possible that the platform provides Offline Mix to a select few as part of its testing, we encourage you to take these claims with a grain of salt. There has been no official confirmation of any public testing.
We’ve reached out to Spotify to see if the company is willing to make a statement or can share details about the feature, such as a launch date. Hopefully soon as the playlist has been around for a while. A well-known industry expert Jane Manchun Wong on Twitter was one of the first to publicly mention Offline Mix in 2020 when it was called Offline User Mix. This story will be updated if we get a response from Spotify.
