Spotify is testing a new "Your Offline Mix" feature


People tend to use WiFi to stream videos or music. But what if you don't have WiFi access and are running out of data soon? Then you'll have to download the content for offline use, which Spotify Premium offers. Now, Spotify is looking to improve this function with a new feature.

Recently, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek revealed that the company has been working on a new feature called "Your Offline Mix". In the screenshot provided by Ek, the feature allegedly compiles a mix of your most recently played songs or tracks. With the feature enabled, Spotify will automatically download these recent tracks. It should then create a mixed playlist for Spotify Premium users for offline use. This is particularly handy for people who travel often, as you can listen to your offline mix on flights.

No further details were provided, so we don't know how the feature works exactly. Does it just take a certain number of recently played songs? A user who allegedly has access to it claimed to have an offline mix of over 3 hours. This means that the feature could support a mix that's quite long. However, we're unsure if this is due to individual tracks being long.

If you're a Spotify user, is this a feature you would appreciate? Also, what other features would you like to see added to the app? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave for more news like this.
