How to Download Music from Spotify to Windows PC

Q: Hey guys! I’m a Spotify Free user. Any idea if there is a way to download music from Spotify so that I can play it offline with Windows Media Player? Thank you!

A: Firstly, Spotify is a streaming music service. Strictly speaking, you are unable to download any songs from Spotify. Secondly, “Offline Play” mode is limited to Spotify Premium users only. Thirdly, Spotify songs are all in encoded format, for which they can only be played with Spotify App and can’t be enjoyed on any other media player on your computer.

To sum up, to download music from Spotify and play them on Windows Media Player, in principle, is impossible. But in this post, we are going to make it possible.
