How to record Spotify music as MP3?

Spotify is a highly competitive streaming music service. You can access Spotify on a computer in two ways: by launching the web player or downloading the desktop app (available for Linux, Mac, and Windows). Besides the desktop and web clients, there are Spotify apps available for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.

Users can dive into Spotify using one of the two listening plans: Spotify Free or Spotify Premium. With Spotify Free, you can only stream the songs with internet connection and shuffle only on mobile devices. You cannot save songs for offline listening. The $10.99-per-month Spotify Premium lets you play songs on demand and download songs for offline playback on your computer, phone, or other devices, only with Spotify app.
