    Don't count on it, its been free for iOS and Android users for ages. WP users pay so it can be free on other platforms, no other company I know has such a ****ty business model.
    No we (WP users) don't. It's been on for iOS and Android for many months before it ever came to Windows Phone. But I agree about that business model.

    Anyone notice that Offline mode does NOT work? The app complains about there being no network connection when you select a song to play that you've downloaded.

    I fear I may finally cancel Spotify after all these years.

    I'm also on the HTC 8X with spotify subscription. No problems for me. The new app is pretty good, very close to the android app with exception to the "Your Music" section.

    I'm not that happy with the new Spotify: its boot time is so much slower compared to the previous one. There is also a bug that you cannot choose previous song from the previous button when you are not in the app itself (pressing volume up/down button for that mini menu) You can't wind the song from these buttons either (this thing was present on the previous version as well)

    True. In the old crappy version, offline works fine. It seems it needs validation first, i.e., start it up connected, play offline song, then disconnect. I am actually disappointed.

    In my case I was connected first as I was driving along just fine until I lost reception. Then Spotify complained about 'no network connection', even though I downloaded my playlist beforehand. Sucky.

    Xbox Music has been disappointing too. Beats? Heck no, big battery drainer.

    Deezer is much superior to Spotify anyway, I don't know why people just don't try Deezer, it even has a very good Windows 8 Modern app.

    I looked into Deezer and they only have a streaming quality of 128kbps bitrate, but have 320kbps for Sonos and web streaming. I also don't see an official Windows Phone app. The one app that is in the Windows Phone store is $6.99 and it's buy/not try. It's also not available in the USA.

    I don't see the superiority over Spotify yet.

    Found the solution.

    There are two Offline settings- one on each playlist and one in the settings. It works in offline mode now.

    Weird thing is that even if the songs have been downloaded, I still have to go online, sync which is very fast, go offline.

    That's exactly what happens. You nailed it.

    I never had to do that before on my other devices. This particular update changed that.

    Anyway, I have since cancelled Spotify after a number of years. Another thing that annoys me is that when I play music over bluetooth in my car, track progress doesn't show on my car stereo's screen. Now, this never was available under Spotify for WP, but I noticed that every other music app I've used and tested (Beats, Xbox Music, Songza, and Nokia Mix Radio) does display the track progress.

    It's just things like this that have added up to why I can't stand giving Spotify any more of my money.

    So, off to Xbox Music for my main music app. (bleh) lol

    I mean track progress. As in, the amount of time a track is and its time left to play. It shows artist and album information just fine. All my other apps show this info except Spotify.

    I'll show you mine.

    Spotify should look like this.



    But it doesn't have the progress bar or time played/remaining. All other music apps on my phone does.

    That's interesting. The one I posted prior was with the Spotify app playing, but the HU is only capable of showing time in progress (no remaining). I remember my Alpine can show both, I should check later.

    Thanks.

    The latest update is a bit better imo but still lacking waaaaay behind android version.
    I don't mind missing features but it needs to be faster when resuming from pause and using the app

    Sadly, the Alpine won't show anything from Bluetooth, using Spotify, Music apps.
