How to Listen to Spotify Songs in Offline Mode

Spotify is the most popular and handy app for listening to your favourite music. You can find almost any song and playlist in its music library and it’s cheaper than, for example, the Apple Music app. But what would you do if you have no internet connection while travelling or while passing inside a long underground tunnel where the reception is poor? The good news is that you can listen to your Spotify playlist offline. This guide will teach you how to download Spotify music playlists with your smartphone so that you can listen to them when you're not connected to the internet.

How to Listen to Spotify Offline

If you want to listen to Spotify Offline, first of all, you need to have a Spotify Premium account ($9.99 per month). If you already have the Premium account, the synchronization process is simple. If you don’t, you can upgrade your account here.

Using Your Mobile Phone

1. Connect to a WiFi network. This will allow you to avoid extra charges relating to the use of your mobile data plan. If you don't have access to WiFi and want to use 3G/4G to sync your music tracks, go to Settings > Music Quality and enable the Download using Cellular option.

2. Next, go back to your music or podcasts library Your Library and select the playlists or tracks from your Music or Podcasts library.

3. Tap on the Download button to download a playlist. If the toggle turns green it means that the playlist is downloading.

Using Your Computer

Log in to your Spotify account and find the playlist you’d like to download. Click on the Download button on the right side of the screen. If the toggle turned green, it means that your playlist is being downloaded. Wait for several minutes and when the process is finished you can listen to your playlist offline.

Note: Spotify allows you to download up to 10 thousand songs on 5 different devices. You can stay offline for a maximum of 30 days to keep your playlists and podcasts downloaded. Just keep in mind to go online every once in a while.
