Introducing how to listen to Spotify music offline on Android phones with Spotify Free and Premium.
Spotify is a streaming music service platform. It will generate automatic recommendations based on your usual listening style, and the algorithm is very accurate. Spotify supports PC/Android/Apple iOS systems, providing you with Free and Premium services. Now, Spotify has been officially authorized by several major global record companies such as Warner Music, Sony, and EMI, and the music it provides is genuine high-fidelity sound quality.
In addition to providing online listening, Spotify can also download music locally for offline listening, and it can be played on both computers and mobile phones. We have already introduced to you how to listen to Spotify music offline on Win/Mac computer, so today we can take a look at how to listen to Spotify music offline on an Android phone. The following article will introduce you to two methods to play Spotify music offline on Android phones, and the second one works even for Spotify Free users. If you're interested, read on!
As long as you have Spotify Premium, you can download any song or album on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android devices. Now let's see how to download a playlist of "Liked Songs". This method works with any playlist in Your Library.
To do this, open the Spotify app on your Android device first. If you haven't installed Spotify on your Android device, you can download it from Google Play or Amazon.
If you don't want to download the playlist on "Liked Songs", but want to download only specific albums, you can move to next. Navigate to the album or playlist and click the "Download" button below the description. Music will be added to Your Library (but not to your Liked Songs). Spotify starts downloading songs as soon as you're on Wi-Fi.
Tips: You can't directly download individual songs on Spotify. If you want to enable downloads over mobile data, you can do so by going to "Settings" > "Audio Quality" > toggle the "Download Using Cellular" option. Also, your need to go online at least once every 30 days to keep your downloads.
It is a widely known fact that the tracks you have downloaded on Spotify do not fully belong to you and you cannot stream them on any app other than Spotify. Additionally, after the Spotify subscription expires, all the content you downloaded becomes invalid. This seems to be a lot of limitations to enjoying Spotify music offline on your Android.
Therefore, we are gonna move on to the second approach, an approach that allows you to play Spotify music entirely on your own. With this method, you can break the restrictions of Spotify. Not only can you forever keep your Spotify tunes, but you can also play them on any music player outside of Spotify, such as AIMP, BlackPlayer EX, YouTube Music, and so on. It works not just for Spotify Premium but also for Spotify free users. Without further ado, let's check it out.
