The good news is that Google appears to have acknowledged the issue and according the company, this is a bug and one that Google is looking to fix. According to Google who sent an email to one of their subscribers afflicted with the problem, “With that said, music that has been downloaded for offline listening, either to the internal storage or SD card, should never be deleted without the user initiating the deletion. This is an actual known issue with this service. The good news is that we are aware of this issue and are actively working to get it fixed.”
So if you’re experiencing this problem yourself, you can rest easy knowing that a fix is on its way. Unfortunately Google did not provide a timeline as to when the update to fix the issue will be released, so we guess until then we will just have to play the waiting game. Any of our readers out there afflicted by this bug themselves?
