Maybe one of the biggest updates is coming– the ability to download songs to a computer with its desktop app. This was already available for the mobile app, but now laptop and desktop users can also enjoy downloaded music offline.
Here’s how to download Spotify music on both the mobile and desktop apps.
Download music in the Spotify mobile app
Just in case you didn’t know this could be done on mobile, it’s easy. Create a new playlist by going to your Library tab and tap Create playlistName your playlist and start adding songs. It doesn’t matter if you only have one number or a dozen, just switch between To download in the mobile app. A small green arrow appears next to each number.
But where do you find the downloads once you have them? Go back to your Library tab and swipe your finger down the screen – a little search bar should appear. Tap Filters, choose Downloads, then choose how you want Spotify to sort your download (by song, artist, etc.). Now you should see all the songs you downloaded that you can now listen to offline.
Download music in the Spotify desktop app
Downloading music with the Spotify desktop or web app is essentially the same as using the mobile app. Unfortunately, not only can you download with the web player in a browser, but downloading the desktop app is free.
- Open the Spotify desktop app (if you haven’t downloaded it yet, go ahead and do this from the app store of your choice).
- Build your playlist. You can do this by clicking on a number> Add to playlistFrom there, add it to an existing playlist or choose New Playlist to start from scratch.
- Open your playlist (if you closed it while searching for songs) and toggle on To download
- After it’s done, you will see a small green arrow next to the downloaded playlist in the left pane. The little green arrow indicates the playlist is available offline – no need to go through filters like on mobile.
- If you no longer want the playlist or songs to be available offline, just turn off Download.
