@dalton It does make some sense, but it dashes my dreams of keeping the music playing over AirPlay while I preview another song to add to the playlist. And it makes no difference if the playlist is available offline.
@dalton@sdrew If you download songs and go to offline mode then multiple people can share a Spotify account. Only one can be online at a time.
My wife and I share this way with only minimal collisions. Major drawback is that you can't use radio mode.
