How to download songs from Spotify

One of the advantages of Spotify Premium is that users can download their favorite songs, playlists and podcasts for offline listening.

When you take a long plane trip or travel to an area with weak internet, you can create a seamless listening experience by downloading songs to use as a soundtrack.

Though Spotify doesn’t allow users to download individual songs from playlists, it’s pretty easy to quickly create a playlist of all your favorite tracks and download them together for offline listening.

Here’s how:

What you need

  • Spotify app

  • internet connection

  • phone or laptop

Step 1: Open the Spotify app on your phone or laptop and sign in to your Spotify Premium account. The price is currently $9.99/month.

Step 5: Then go back to the main screen of the app and click on your library on the bottom right corner of the screen. Click on the playlist you just created and then click the Download button, which looks like a down arrow in a circle.

That’s all you need to do to download tracks for offline playback. If you want to download entire albums, there is no need to create a separate playlist. Just click the download button under the album cover to download it. The same process works for podcasts.

Use this quick and easy method for an airy music listening experience, no matter where you are in the world.
