Spotify offers three types of subscription: Spotify Free, Spotify Premium ($9.99 per month) and Spotify Family ($14.99 per month). Though Spotify Free users can listen to songs on demand, discover new music, play and share music, playlist, album and etc, Spotify offline listening mode is limited to Premium subscribers - Spotify allows paid users to download up to 3,333 songs per device on a maximum of 3 different devices, but Spotify Free users can never enjoy any of Spotify songs without Internet connection. Also, what worth mentioning here is that Spotify is a streaming music service, for which both Spotify Free users and Spotify Premium subscribers are confined to listen to the songs with Spotify App. This tutorial is going to teach you not only to download Spotify music without premium but also play Spotify downloaded music without Spotify App.
In fact, we can’t own any Spotify music that we listen to. Because of DRM, the alleged downloaded songs are temporarily saved on the cloud, but not in our local files.
