Want to download songs from Spotify for offline listening? It is super easy and we’ll show you how.
Spotify is a popular digital music streaming service that gives access to millions of songs, but what happens when you’re away from mobile or internet access and want to play some music? Thankfully, Spotify has a feature called Offline Listening, where users can download their favorite music onto their device so that they can play the songs anytime, anywhere.
How to download songs from Spotify for offline use
Follow the instructions below:
1. Launch the Spotify app on your phone.
2. Navigate to the song, album, artist or playlist that you want to download.
3. You need to move the Download toggle button (Below artwork) to ON position. This will instantly start downloading your songs.
The downloading process will take time depending on the size of the file and internet connection speed but should be a rather quick process.
The green color download icon before the song title confirms that the song is downloaded successfully to your phone.
Note: You can do this to download singles, album or the entire playlist. Also, download songs means, you’re downloading the songs withing the Spotify app.
4. You can navigate to Library -> Downloads. Here, you will get the list of songs which you have downloaded.
Set the Spotify app to run in Offline Mode
- Tap on the Library icon available at the bottom
- Tap on Settings
- Tap on Playback
- Enable Offline.
Alternatively, you can also turn off Cellular or Wireless connections to enable the Spotify offline mode.
Note: If you’re using an Android phone, then you might see the “Your Library” icon on the bottom, not on the corner like in the case of iPhone.
Downloading Spotify songs for offline listening has some caveats
Spotify’s Offline Listening is a premium feature and to access feature users require a subscription which cost $9.99/Month and $14.99 for a family plan. This means users running the freemium version won’t get the advantage of this feature.
Previously, the users with Spotify premium can download up to 3333 songs on each up to three devices, but recently the company ups the limit on offline downloads to a whopping 10,000 songs, that means you can download 10,000 songs on each of up to 5 different devices. So it’s not a caveat anymore.
Keep in Mind: Make sure to take Spotify app online at least once every 30 days. Failure to do so will make your offline song library inaccessible.
