"As a Spotify loyal fan, I have been listening to the Spotify music for years and have curated multiple playlists with thousands of songs to play offline on my Windows computer. Recently I upgraded my phone to Galaxy S9. Is there a way to move all my Spotify songs and playlists to my Android phone? Really don't want to start over to download these files as it could take couples of days to do that. Any assistance will be appreciated. "
With the Spotify premium membership, it is not difficult download songs for offline listening. But if you have a big playlist, then it will be a heavy task. Fortunately, there are ways to transfer music from Spotify to Android phones and tablets. Here I am going to show you how to achieve it easily.
Part 1. Sync Spotify Playlists to your Android Devices with the Spotify App
When it comes to transferring music, the first solution I think of is to use the Spotify App. In this way, no other third party software required, just make sure your Spotify Premium account is still active. Please follow the steps:
Step 1. Run Spotify app desktop version from your Windows or Mac computer, then login with the Premium account and password.
Step 2. Connect your Android device to the computer via an USB port or Wifi. To connect it wirelessly, you just need to make sure both your computer and the Android equipment are in the same Wifi network.
Step 3. Launch Spotify mobile app and login with the same account info.
Step 4. After that, your Android phone should show up under the "Devices" tab on the Spotify of your computer.
Step 5. Right click to select your phone and choose "Sync 'your device's name' with Spotify". It will show you all the playlists from Spotify or local files. You can choose the playlist to sync all the songs automatically or select the songs you like to transfer manually.
Note: Sometimes the Antivirus or Firewalls may cause some Spotify local files not syncing, so please go to the security software settings panel to change the settings or you can disable them temporarily.
Part 2. An Even Better Way to Move Spotify Tracks to Any Android Gadgets
With the solution above, you are only able to play the music within the Spotify app due to the DRM copyright protection. What is more, the downloaded files are only cached on the device. You have to keep the Premium account active, else the downloaded files will miss from your Android phone. You can't move them elsewhere or send to your friends either. So is there a way to get away from this dilemma?
Sure, just get DRmare Spotify to Android Converter for Mac/Windows to help. It is created for break Spotify DRM scheme and download the files to user friendly formats. By doing this, you can copy and play them on any phones and tablets such as Samsung Galaxy S9/Note 8/Tab S3, Google Pixel 2, LG V30, Android One Moto, Sony Xperia XZ1, HTC U11, ASUS ZenPad 3S, Amazon Fire HD and so on.

The easiest way is to drag & drop the curated files from the Spotify to the DRmare converter screen, it will understand what files you want to convert and import them to the software working area.
Step 2Set the output parameters (optional)
There are hundreds of different Android devices and they may support different formats. But one thing is sure they all support MP3 well. So MP3 is highly recommended. Besides that, you can change the output folder where you can locate the files finally.
Step 3Start converting Spotify music
After pressing "Convert" button, your Spotify playlists will be saved to the local computer. In general, the software can convert all the songs with up to 5X speed. But if you has a low internet speed, you may just change the converting speed as "1X" so that to make it runs more smoothly. At last, you can copy them to any Android mobile devices.
