Fix Spotify do not download songs

Spotify Premium allows you to download songs to listen to anywhere, anytime. You can download up to 10,000 songs on each of up to 5 different devices, so that you don't have to use your precious mobile data to stream your favorite music and podcasts on the go.

However, sometimes you might find that Spotify can’t download the songs you want. Here are five ways to troubleshoot the issue.

How to troubleshoot if Spotify Premium won't download music?

Check your internet connection
Make sure your device is connected to a strong Wi-Fi connection. By default, Spotify prevents you from downloading songs over cellular data networks, so if you have an cellular connection instead of a Wi-Fi connection, the songs will wait until the next time you are connected to Wi-Fi to download.
If you want to enable cellular downloading, tap the Settings gear in the mobile app, tap "Music Quality," and switch on "Download Using Cellular."

Check your device’s space
Make sure your device's memory has enough free space to download music. Spotify recommends leaving at least one GB of storage free.

Check Spotify premium status
Make sure your Spotify premium is still valid. Go to Spotify Settings. Tap Account and make sure it says PREMIUM next to Subscription.

Check devices amount
You can only download songs on up to five devices .  If you download to a 6th device, downloads are automatically removed from the device you use the least.

Check songs amount
Additionally, if you are getting an error message saying that you've reached the download limit, it is because you have already downloaded the maximum of 10,000 songs on your account. If you want to download more, you'll need to get rid of old downloads. Don't worry, you can still listen to these songs when you're online.
