Download Songs from Spotify

Spotify allows users with Spotify Premium to download music so that they can listen to their favorite songs, albums, playlists, or podcasts offline.


Note: Spotify doesn't allow you to download an individual song. However, you can add that song to a Spotify playlist, and then download that playlist to have it available offline.


Requirements to Download Songs on Spotify

Spotify allows you to download songs for offline play, but plain and simple, things can feel a bit restrictive. As wonderful as this feature sounds, you can only use it on Spotify's apps — not in your web browser. Thankfully, Spotify has specialized applications for Android, iOS, macOS and Windows designed to be compatible across these different devices.

You will need a Spotify Premium subscription to download songs and listen offline. That even goes for Duo, Student and Family—in other words, basically everyone who wants to store tunes off the cloud. If you're not paying, downloading music is a standard no-go but podcasts can be taken for offline listening.

It's important to note that while you can enjoy your downloaded songs anywhere, you must connect to the Spotify app in a supported country at least once every 30 days to maintain access to your offline music library.
