“What is the best Spotify music downloader? Is there any way to download Spotify songs? Can you directly download Spotify playlist with some kind of Spotify playlist downloader tools? I just signed up with Spotify and it seems that I can only listen to the streaming music in the free version. I was told to upgrade to the Premium version so that I can download Spotify songs for offline listening. Is that true? Or could I download Spotify songs in other ways or with other Spotify song downloader apps?”

We all know that Spotify is one of the largest online music streaming services we could access instantly for music enjoyment. And at the same time, we learn that the free version of Spotify only allows us to listen to music online, with no music downloadable. Therefore many people are wondering if there is any way to download Spotify songs and playlist for offline enjoyment. Well, in this guide, we would like to share several effective tools to help you realize this. You no longer need to upgrade to the Premium version to listen to Spotify music offline.

Part 1: Brief Introduction to Amazon Kindle

Let’s firstly get a brief understanding on Spotify. As one of the world’s largest digital music streaming services, Spotify provides millions of tracks with DRM (digital rights management-protected) from record labels and media companies for you to enjoy anywhere anytime. It’s now available on Windows PC, Mac OS, Linux, iOS devices, and Android devices. Therefore, once you sign up with Spotify, you could freely listen to any music of any type and genre in the world on the go.

Spotify enables you to browse and search desired music or tracks to listen to via various music parameters like artist, album, genre, playlist, cover, etc. Therefore, you could listen to almost all music you like.

Known to all, Spotify offers free and Premium versions. The Spotify free version is available to anyone at no cost but with ads, while the Premium is ad-free but costs $9.99 per month. Both free and Premium versions enable you to browse and search what you want to listen to, get recommendations, build connections of music, see what your others are listening to, and create your own radio stations.

Brief Introduction to Kindle

The most important thing of Premium version is that it allows you to listen to Spotify music offline. With the Premium version, you could play any song you like, skip any song you dislike at high quality, and have no ads. But you need to pay for $9.99 per month on Premium version.

As mentioned above, Spotify provides DRM content for music listening. The DRM protection upon Spotify songs is the limit that prevents you from downloading and converting Spotify songs to MP3 or other formats for unlimited enjoyment. Actually, the download feature in the Premium version is just an offline mode that enables you to listen to Spotify music offline. It’s not read music download. If you want to download or convert Spotify music to MP3 or other formats, you need to remove the DRM protection first and then make use of some kind of Spotify music downloader and converter, which will be discussed below.
