For the same reason that YouTube music refuses to play offline content stored on your phone until there’s a live internet connection - particularly helpful when you’re outside of coverage.

That reason is that you are the product and playing without being tracked doesn’t make any money.

Unless something has recently changed, I was unable to play music that was downloaded inside YouTube music but refused to play if there was no internet access.

I’m not saying that the two are the same.

I’m pointing out that you are prevented from using either service offline because they want to track your behaviour in order to monetize your data.
