How to Download Songs on Spotify
Spotify can run on computers and smartphones. In this part, I will show you how to download music on Spotify using these two kinds of devices.
1. If you are a Spotify’s non-paying user, you can’t download and save songs to your devices. Only Spotify Premium accounts can allow you to do that and then you can listen to these songs anywhere, even when you don’t have a Wi-Fi or data signal.
2. On the desktop, Spotify only allows you to download playlists for offline listening, no albums or podcasts. On Spotify's mobile app, you're able to download albums, playlists, and podcasts.
3. You can’t download individual songs, but you can put them in a playlist and download Spotify playlist.
