How Do I Download a Spotify Playlist?

As we all know, Spotify is one of the most famous music streaming services recently. Spotify offers a free, ad-supported version of its service, which lets you enjoy millions songs of its catalog online for free. If you have Spotify Premium, you can download up to 10,000 songs on each of up to five different devices.

When you cancel your Premium subscription, you eventually revert to the ad-based free version. Now you can still listen to these playlists while on Free, but just in Shuffle mode and you can't listen to them offline anymore. When you re-subscribe to Premium, you can re-download your music for offline use.
