Part 2. How to Download Music from Spotify on PC without Premium

Although Spotify allows its premium users to download music for offline listening, the downloads are only cached files, encoded in OGG format. Therefore, you cannot find the downloaded Spotify songs on your local computer or move them to other devices. This prevents users from listening to Spotify music on MP3 players, smart speakers, and other portable devices. Therefore, we would like to show you a way to download Spotify songs to your local PC - using DRmare Spotify Music Converter. It is also available for Spotify free users, and you can download Spotify music even without a Spotify Premium account.

With DRmare Spotify Music Downloader, you can also choose the output format as MP3, AAC, FLAC and other common formats. The songs will be stored locally on your computer and you can listen to them anytime and anywhere. The original sound quality and ID3 tags are retained losslessly, so you can enjoy 100% original Spotify music. Plus, it works 5x faster, so you can get your favorite Spotify songs as quickly as possible.

Part 3. How to Download Songs from Spotify to PC with Premium

Officially, with a Spotify Premium account, you can download Spotify songs on PC for offline listening. However, you can only download albums and playlists.

Then you can start downloading songs from Spotify on Windows. (Or you can use DRmare Spotify Downloader to download individual Spotify songs directly.)

Step 1. Open the Spotify Windows PC app on your computer. Then sign in to your Spotify premium account.
