A user from Twitter facing the same issue said, “Anyone knows why Spotify is suddenly saying I’m in offline mode (been this way for a few days now) when I’m using Apple CarPlay? I’ve got unlimited data and Spotify premium, so offline mode shouldn’t be a thing, and it still plays non-downloaded tracks with no problem.” The issue is consistent, as reported by her.

A Redditor facing the persistent issue claims, “Yep, I suspect this as well after the recent Spotify update. In my case, running iOS 16.2 will disconnect CarPlay midway while playing a song.”

Not only this, as per the reports, the users on the latest iOS 16.2 version are also facing the error. After analysis, it has been found that the other functionalities of Spotify work well like before on CarPlay. Still, the issue is with online streaming of the application, which shows notifications like “Spotify is offline” and “You can play downloads from Your Library.”

The affected users have tried general troubleshooting methods like reinstalling the application, clearing its cache, resetting their iPhones, etc. Still, nothing seems to be a helping hand for the irritating problem.

Fortunately, the music streaming company has claimed officially and acknowledged that they are aware of the issue about the Home tab on the Apple CarPlay showing no content and those alerting messages, and they are investigating the same. Soon, we will be getting a working solution to the issue.
