How to download Spotify Music to MP3 format

Jan. 6, 2021 Updated

The highly competitive streaming music space changes every day, but one thing remains the same: Spotify is one of the best music services around with large catalog, collaborative playlists, podcasts, and numerous other attractive features. When you have no budget on music subscription, Spotify is also a perfect choice since it offers free ad-supported tier, you can still listen to the latest and greatest hits as long as you have internet connection.

However, for me, the biggest shortcoming is that I can only stream the songs via Spotify app. Even though I have subscribed to Spotify premium, downloaded the playlist, I still can't play the songs on other devices without Spotify app, such as my mp3 player. This is because Spotify uses an encrypted file extension(Ogg Vorbis) as their streaming format. You can only play the songs offline with Spotify app, you cannot play them on other platforms.

However, if you can download and convert Spotify music to MP3, you can then play Spotify music anywhere you want. How to download Spotify music as MP3? It's easy. Here we will show you 2 Spotify Music Downloader tools that allows you to download and convert Spotify music to MP3 with 100% original quality and ID3 tags. Spotify free users can also use it to get rid of Spotify ads.
