2.3 Download Songs from Music Streaming Platforms

Download from the Spotify App: If you're more concerned with output quality, we're more likely to recommend App mode. It allows you to get the best 320kbps output quality (Apple Music Hi-Res Lossless, Amazon Music Ultra HD, Tidal Master). If you choose to record music from the App, the Spotify app will open at the same time.

On the Add Music tab, there are two methods to import music from the Spotify app to Macsome. You can directly drag and drop the playlist into the dotted-bordered rectangle, or copy and paste the Spotify song or playlist link to the blue box.
