No download button on ARC

Good morning.

Has anyone else noticed the download button missing from the top right corner of their screens on ARC? I did a quick search here and did not see it mentioned (apologies if I missed it) and could not find anything in the ARC help, FAQs about why it would be missing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Are you by any chance looking at content from a streaming service? The download button is only available for local content.

Can I download music for offline listening?

Yes, you can download local content for offline listening with ARC.

Simply go to any local album or playlist and click the download icon in the top right.

Am I missing something? If it is local content, then why does one need to download it anyway?

Because you might be taking your phone to somewhere where a cellular network is not available…

Yes. But if the song is stored locally on your phone, then why download it again from Roon?

“local content” refers to being in the Roon Core - not on the phone…

That makes more sense. To me, “local content” means local on the phone. Maybe this should be explained better?
