I really feel like this may very well be a working phase right here at Droid Life, however there’s one thing that’s been grinding my gears about Spotify recently and that’s the truth that the Android app doesn’t auto cache the songs I take heed to most. Google Play Music did and I miss that function so, a lot.
It was extra obvious to me after we had been nonetheless doing work journeys to CES and different embargoed conferences, however sometimes, I’ll discover that it’s one thing that’s absent from Spotify. On Spotify, customers can manually choose which songs they’d like downloaded to a tool, which clearly works positive and dandy, however the auto cache function on Play Music was very clutch. For me, it might cache a random number of songs that I had lately listened to, making what appeared like an eclectic playlist of tunes.
YouTube Music, which changed Play Music, has Sensible Downloads — at night time when on WiFi, the app will auto obtain your “favourite music” so that you’ll at all times have one thing saved to your system. Customers can select how a lot music they need saved mechanically, starting from simply 1 to 500 songs. From wanting in settings, there doesn’t look like any kind of auto cache function like Play Music, however Sensible Downloads is shut.
Subsequent time on this phase we’ll talk about music queues. The way in which Play Music dealt with queues was stunning. The way in which Spotify does it? Trash.
