How to Download Playlist on Spotify

Several simple steps can help you download Spotify playlists with/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 for offline listening. But as we know, everything on streaming services can't be directly downloaded as local files but instead as encrypted cache files, resulting in limitations for downloaded Spotify playlists:

  • 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.
  • To bypass these restrictions, we recommend using a music converter, such as the AudiFab Spotify Music Converter, to save Spotify playlists as local files. This method is applicable whether you're using a Spotify Free or Premium account. The following section of the article will provide a detailed guide on how to use AudiFab, enabling you to easily complete the steps for extracting your Spotify playlists.
