Take all your Spotify tunes offline with just one tap
Living in the cloud definitely has its benefits. One is the ability of syncing your set-up between multiple devices and platforms. But what happens when you lose your data connection? Or when your used megabytes start adding up to insane overage fees? Sometimes you just need to give up your internal storage and take your music offline.
This was a complicated process in Spotify. You had to download specific playlists or songs, but with the latest update Spotify has made it a breeze to download all your Spotify music at once.
This is done simply by going to the “Songs” tab, where a new “Available Offline” toggle has been made available. Just switch it on and your music will download for your offline listening pleasure. It’s very convenient and easy to manage.
No good thing comes without its compromises, though. Gladly, there are only two limitations to this new feature. The first is you can only download 3,333 songs per device. This is no problem to most people. I am sure very few of you keep that much music in Spotify.
The second limitation is a time restrain. Users can only keep the music offline for up to 30-days, after which it will become unavailable and you may choose to re-download it. It should be more than enough time for you to keep your music handy for those long trips, though.
I am still much more of a Google Play Music kind of guy. I tend to listen to the same music and really don’t buy enough albums to make a monthly subscription worth it. I can see how this new feature could make for a great Spotify experience, though. It’s definitely not this easy to “pin” all your songs on Google Play Music.
