Many Premium users of Spotify might have encountered the same problem now and then. Specifically, for the downloaded songs or playlists, some might be greyed out and unaccessible, or even completely disappeared after a while when you went back to play them. Why did that happen? Well, there are many reasons that could cause the unexpected deletion of those download songs on Spotify. Here we'll list the most possible causes one by one, while providing the ultimate fix for you to stop Spotify offline songs from disappearing any more.

Part 1. Why Do Spotify Saved Songs Disappear?

The disappearance of Spotify offline songs could be caused by different reasons like below:

1. You may have logged into a wrong Spotify account

Although it's unlikely to happen, you are still suggested to check whether you have logged into the correct Spotify account which saved the offline songs or playlists, in case you have registered multiple Spotify accounts before.

2. The original songs/playlists were deleted by the artist or creator

This mostly happens to the songs or playlists that are greyed out after you've downloaded into your account. In this case, it's probably because that the artist or the creator has permanently deleted the tracks for some reason.

3. Your downloads exceed the 10,000 number limit

As Spotify only allows Premium users to download up to 10,000 tracks on 3 devices in total, you should check whether you have hit that limit or not. If so, Spotify will delete the previously downloaded songs automatically when you are adding some new tracks. Normally, you'll be noticed by Spotify with a warning message once you reached the number limit.

Besides, to verify your premium membership, you are required to log into your account online every 30 days. Otherwise, the downloaded songs would disappear from your Spotify.

4. Something got wrong with your Internet connection

While you are saving any track or playlist offline on Spotify, an active Internet connection is required. So you should confirm the network runs well when you are downloading the songs from Spotify. Otherwise you should connect it and download the songs again.

In other cases, the previously downloaded songs could become unavailable on Spotify if you changed the region of your VPN network. That's because some Spotify songs are not allowed in certain countries and regions. To access the music again, you should change your VPN network settings.

Part 2. How to Fix Spotify Songs Disappeared Issue

Unfortunately, we can't cover all the reasons and solutions to stop the deletion of Spotify songs. But the better news is that we can fix the 'Spotify songs disappeared' issue permanently with some easy tricks.

First of all, you should figure out where the songs go when they are downloaded from Spotify. In fact, you don't "own" the music even if you have saved it offline. When you are doing this, you only "rent" those songs from Spotify as you can only play them within Spotify app. You can't then take the offline files and use them elsewhere. In other words, the "downloaded" Spotify songs may keep disappearing occasionally, making you frustrated every now and then.
