Spotify Offline Music

While audio streaming is nowhere near as hungry as video streaming, you can still burn through your data cap pretty quickly if you listen to a lot of music. And if you happen to be roaming at the time, you can easily rack up a several hundred dollar phone bill just by listening to a playlist or two on Spotify.

Part 1: How to Listen to Spotify Offline with Premium

Obviously, Spotify is aware of this, so they’ve made it possible for Premium subscribers to save music for offline listening. It’s one of the features that really makes it worth the $9.99 a month. Here’s how to use Spotify offline so it doesn’t use mobile data.

If you want to use Spotify offline, you need to make sure you’ve actually got some music downloaded to listen to.

With Spotify Premium, you can download 10,000 songs for offline listening on five different devices.

That’s 50,000 total tracks across everything. Strangely, there’s no way to download individual songs; you have to download either albums or playlists.

Open Spotify and head to the album or playlist you want to save for offline listening. As long as you’re a Premium Subscriber, you’ll see a toggle that says Download. Tap it and the album or playlist will save to your phone. Once the songs are saved, you’ll see a little green arrow next to them to show it.

If you want to delete the songs from your phone, just tap the Downloaded toggle again.

Now whenever you play any of the songs you’ve saved—in my case, anything off Twisted Sister’s masterpiece, A Twisted Christmas—it will play from your phone rather than streaming over mobile data.

While just downloading the songs you listen to most often for offline listening will go a long way towards cutting your data usage, anything you haven’t downloaded will still stream over mobile data.

If you want to stop Spotify from ever streaming anything, so you avoid accidental data drains, you need to put it in Offline Mode.

From the Your Library tab, tap the Settings icon in the top right and select Playback. Tap the Offline toggle to put Spotify in Offline Mode.

Now when you use Spotify, you’ll only be able to play the songs you’ve downloaded. If you use Search, it will only return songs that are on your device.

It’s important to note that you can’t stay in Offline Mode indefinitely. You need to go online at least once every thirty days so Spotify can confirm you’re still subscribed. Turning on Offline Mode stops Spotify from connecting, even on Wi-Fi.
