How to download Spotify playlist or songs to MP3


Read this article to know how you download your playlist songs or the whole playlist from Spotify.

Internet is not always trustworthy and to trust it to play your Spotify playlist at all times just feels like a big gamble to take. While Spotify allows you to keep your music files offline, it limits you by allowing you to play those files only where Spotify is installed and registered in your name. Not long before, we used to have MP3 files for our favourite music and this used to give us the freedom of playing our music anywhere we want and on whatever devices we own. I believe that not only gives us complete flexibility with our music but is also environment friendly since we are not streaming the same media files every time we want to play our playlist. More data you save, less pollution you create in terms of your carbon footprint.

Wrap up


That's my two favourite methods to download my Spotify playlist to MP3. The tool from DRmare is a paid software with the free version allowing download of songs of just 1-minute length. The second is a free tool but I am not impressed with the audio quality that it delivers. My personal preference is paying for a tool that gets me my songs in the best quality possible with all its metadata and cover art and that is where DRmare Spotify Music Converter delivers absolutely.
