Spotify now lets you take your entire music collection offline

Spotify now lets users easily make their whole Spotify music collection available offline should they desire to do so. With just a single button press, you can now download every song under Your Music. This ability actually came to Android users as part of the recent security update.

In the iPhone app, open the sidebar menu and selected Your Music, and swipe over to Songs. Under the Shuffle Play button, and above the first song on the list, you will now see Available Offline next to a switch. Press the switch to make every song in your collection available offline on your device.

Remember that depending on how much music is in your collection, as well as your download quality settings, you could be downloading several gigabytes of music onto your phone. Be mindful of how much space you have on your phone.

This app also contains fixes for a number of bugs. You can download Spotify 1.2 from the App Store now.

Spotify now lets you take your entire music collection offline


Now let's wait another two years for Playlist Editing capabilities... whis is ALREADY available on iOS ¬¬' Damn you, Spotify!

Yes, this great function is for premium users only. Our free users should use more effort to save Spotify tracks for offline playback. As far as I know, the songs on Spotify cannot be decrypted, so they can't be downloaded directly. It seems that record songs is the most reliable method, now lots of good free audio recorder are available on the Internet, you can refer to the guide and choose one:

this has to be a paid feature....they just couldnt give music away for free....but of course i could be wrong.

Doesn't work for me...

"Sync error. You have reached the maximum number of tracks that can be made available offline..."

Both have Radio capabilities where you add a song or artist, and it plays similar songs. However, Spotify also has an online playlist option, where you add any songs you want to a playlist and it plays it on desktops or over mobile. It's essentially a music library that you play.

When are they going to add uploading what's not available in their library? I like Google Play but prefer the Spotify apps on the desktop player.

I think some of you are confused. This is new because now you can now download your entire library for offline play. Previously, you were limited to 10,000 songs per device, up to three devices.

That's what my reading comprehension is telling me, at least.

I'm pretty sure you were, and will be restricted to 3,333 tracks downloaded on any mobile device. Don't know why they came up with such a random number...

10,000 per-device for three devices, 10,000 total across three devices... Eh, big difference.

Well spotify lost me at the "not right now" status posted in March on their community forum about timeframe for chromecast support.
4500 kudos and 105+pages of comments and still no official word of they will ever implement support.
Sad to see such lame response from Spotify but hey, it's not like it's a secret they don't give a shit about their paying users free feedback.

Hey guys, you should check your writings before you put them online. You are writing about the iPhone app, not the Android one. You even wrote "In the iPhone app" and then directed people towards the Apple App Store with the download link!
You should really delete this article as it's completely wrong.

Sometimes when I try to start a radio channel on Spotify it won't start and says the channel can't be started now. I just got Spotify last week because the Mog service was shut off, and have the newest android app.
