Downloading music from Spotify is only available for Premium customers, but if you did opt for a premium subscription, then do know that this option exist. If you did not opt for a premium subscription, then this option will be grayed out. Downloading music from the service will let you play your favorite tracks offline.
Download Music from Spotify
Step 1 – The first thing to do is to, of course, download Spotify on your device. The application itself is free to download and install, but do take note that if you opt to listen to the service for free, then there will be advertisements that will pop up in between the playback of some songs. Think of it as something similar to YouTube advertisements, but the ads on this one are all audio. But when you do opt for a premium subscription, you can get rid of the adds, plus be able to download music straight from the app, as well as a bunch of other features that are inaccessible to free customers.
Step 2 – Once you have successfully downloaded and installed the Spotify app, sign into your account and head to your playlists or library. You will then be able to see a toggle that will allow you to listen to the songs offline. The toggle clearly states “Available Offline,” and turning it on will make those tracks available for listening even when you’re device is not connected to the Internet.
Step 3 – The time it takes for the app to download the songs will depend on a number of factors such as the speed of your Internet connection, the number of tracks to download, and the quality of the songs. Speaking of which, you can also change the quality of the songs to be downloaded from Low to High. If you have the storage space, then you can even opt to download them with the “Extreme” option, in which the tracks will be at their highest quality when downloaded.
step 4 – Even when your device is connected to the Internet, you can force Spotify to work on offline mode. When you’re in offline mode, the application won’t connect to the Internet, so you can’t listen to any new songs that you might fancy. However, it also means that the app won’t eat up data, which is good if you’re under a limited data plan. Downloading music is just one of the many perks of being a premium subscription member of this music streaming service.
