How to Download Music From Spotify

With a Spotify Premium account, you can download up to 3,333 songs on your computer or mobile device. These songs will then be available to you even if you don't have an Internet connection. At the time of publication, you can download songs on up to three devices, for a total of 9,999 songs, if desired. Spotify requires that you sign in at least once every 30 days to continue to enjoy the downloads.

While you can download any playlist, having one dedicated just for offline music makes it easier to see what you have downloaded, which can be important if you have limited storage on your device.

If you don't have a premium account, you can upgrade your account on the </ahref="https:>Spotify website, or click your name at the top of the app and select Account.
