How to Extract MP3 audio from Spotify Music
Spotify is a digital streaming music service that gives you access to millions of songs. Spotify offers Free and Premium subscription options to users. Spotify Premium enables you to play Spotify music in offline mode.
However, you should note that Spotify Premium and downloading are not the same thing. Offline playlists are essentially a cached stream, and not individually stored songs.
Can I download Spotify music as MP3?
So users might have a few questions about a premium account like robindegen asked on Spotify community:
- Can i download songs i like as mp3 and play them anywhere? (Without the actual spotify software, for example in my car)
- Is there DRM or anything like that? Will they work on my car radio (usb stick)?
- What's the limit on this downloading?
Let's analyze the problems in greater detail. You can't download songs as MP3 from Spotify and play them without the Spotify app. Because Spotify Premium can only allow you to stream music for offline usage inside the Spotify client.
When the songs are cached, they are DRM encrypted, so it would not be possible to remove them and play them in your car. You are restricted to playing those songs through the Spotify client. For offline playlists, there is a limit of 3,333 total songs that can be available offline at any given time.
