If you have a limited data plan with your cell provider, using audio without WiFi could cause you to reach your limit quickly, and trigger extra charges. 

To ensure the best audio experience possible, we strongly recommend that you connect using WiFi (a wireless network) while listening. 

While the data network for your mobile device may be fast enough, most networks may cause delays or “stuttering.” If you notice delays or hiccups, try pausing the audio, wait several seconds to allow your audio to buffer, then resume play. 

Since any change in the network connection can cause an interruption, audio may not work well in a moving vehicle.
