How to Download Playlist on Spotify

Several simple steps can help you download Spotify playlists without a Premium account.

Spotify is one of the largest music streaming service providers, including more than 100 million songs. It offers two types of subscriptions-Spotify Free and Spotify Premium. On Spotify Premium, you can download albums, playlists, and podcasts to listen to them without an internet connection. But as we know, everything on streaming services is unable to be directly downloaded as a local file but as cache files, which are all encrypted. So there are some limits on downloaded playlists from Spotify.

  • The downloads can only be played on the Spotify App.
  • The downloads cannot be played on more than 5 different devices.
  • Go online at least once every 30 days to keep downloads.
  • The downloads will not play after your Premium expired.
  • Cannot download individual songs directly.

In this article, we will show you a simple yet effective way to download Spotify playlists with Spotify Free or Premium accounts. What you need is AudiFab Spotify Music Converter.
