Spotify on Android: how to clear the app cache without deleting your music

Clearing Spotify's music cache has always been a good way to free up space on Android. This is because, as the user listens to their playlists, even without downloading any music, the application accumulates temporary files - which after a certain amount of time take up much of the available storage.

But until recently, those who used this method were forced to delete all other data in the application, including songs already downloaded. In its last update, however, Spotify changed this rule and it is already possible to delete the temporary files without losing the downloads. Learn how to do it in the following tutorial.
