Few things are more annoying than a Spotify error that takes you away from your music. This happens when Spotify fails to connect to the internet on your Android and shows the error “No internet connection available”. This prevents you from streaming or downloading your favorite music.
If you’ve already ruled out any internet-related issues by testing your connection in another app, it’s time to dig deeper. Here are some effective solutions to fix Spotify “No internet connection available” error on Android.
1. Force stop the app and reopen it
Restarting an app is an effective way to fix weird issues with it. Therefore, before trying any advanced troubleshooting solutions, force stop the Spotify app and open it again.
Long-press the Spotify app icon and tap the “i” icon in the menu that appears. On the app info page, tap the Force Stop option.
Reopen the Spotify app and see if the app can connect to the internet.
2. Allow Unlimited Data Usage on Spotify App
Restricting data usage for an app on Android can affect its performance and prevent it from accessing the internet. This could be the reason why Spotify shows “No internet connection available” error. To avoid this, allow unlimited data usage for Spotify on your Android.
Step 1: Long-press the Spotify app icon and tap the info icon from the resulting menu.
2nd step: Tap on “Mobile data and Wi-Fi” and turn on the toggle for “Unlimited data usage” in the next menu.

3. Toggle offline mode in Spotify
Spotify’s offline mode gives you the luxury of listening to your favorite songs without the internet. Sometimes, when you disable offline mode in Spotify, the app may show “No internet connection available” error and crash. In most cases, you can fix the problem by toggling offline mode.
Step 1: Open the Spotify app on your phone and tap the gear icon in the top right corner to open Settings.
2nd step: Scroll down to the Reading section and enable Offline mode toggle. Wait a few seconds and then turn it off. After that, Spotify should connect to the internet.
4. Log out of all devices and log back in
Spotify may generate random errors if it fails to authenticate your account. You can try signing out of all your devices and start over. This will refresh Spotify’s connection with the server and resolve the “No internet connection available” error.
Step 1: Open any web browser on your PC and go to the Spotify website. Log in to your Spotify account.
2nd step: Click your name in the upper right corner and select Account from the list.
Step 3: Scroll down to click the “Sign Out Everywhere” button.
Log in to your Spotify account on your Android and see if the error persists.
5. Clear Spotify Cache
Spotify saves frequently accessed data in its application cache. This helps Spotify save bandwidth and improve performance. While that’s a good thing, it’s not uncommon for this data to get outdated or corrupted over time. When this happens, Spotify may stop working on your phone and annoy you with various errors, such as the one described here.
For such occasions, Spotify offers the possibility to clear the cache directly in the application. Here’s how to access it.
Step 1: Open the Spotify app on your phone and tap the gear icon in the top right corner.
2nd step: Scroll down to tap the Clear cache option. Select Clear Cache again when prompted.
6. Update the Spotify app
Apps like Spotify could act if you are using an older version. That’s why it’s a good idea to enable automatic updates for all your apps on Android. You can also update the Spotify app manually from the Play Store.
Step 1: Open Google Play Store on your phone and search Spotify.
2nd step: Tap the Update button to install the pending update.
Alternatively, you can also uninstall the Spotify app and reinstall it. This should clear any corrupt app data that may have prevented the app from connecting to the internet and update it.
After that, the ‘No internet connection available’ error should no longer bother you.
