As one of the most popular music streaming services in the world, Spotify is a great platform that lets you listen to millions of songs for free, all you need to do is to sign up and get a Spotify Free account.
However, free users are not allowed to download music from Spotify for offline playback. So you can either choose to pay $9.99 per month to unlock the Premium features, such as ad-free streaming, offline playback, etc., or you can use a Spotify Music downloader to download whatever songs/playlists you like from Spotify and listen to them offline on any device.
Which one is better? Considering that music downloaded from Spotify Premium are in OGG format, which is DRM protected and only playable on Spotify app. I would say the later option is better. By using a music downloader like TuneFab Spotify Music Converter, you can bypass DRM and download songs, albums or playlists from Spotify to MP3, M4A, WAV and FLAC. It is a perfect tool for those who want to save Spotify songs to other devices or media players for offline listening.
Now, take a few minutes to read through this post and I'm sure you'll learn all the good and bad about this Spotify song downloader.
TuneFab Spotify Music Converter Features
1. Remove DRM from Spotify Music
DRM, short for Digital Right Management, is a technology used to control how people use the purchased or rented digital content, such as music, movies, audiobook, etc. TuneFab Spotify Music Converter can "unlock" the DRM restriction by recording music from Spotify and re-encoding it as DRM-free MP3, M4A, FLAC or WAV format. In this way, you can easily get rid of DRM and make it possible to use Spotify music for your personal needs, for example, you can burn music to CD.
2. Download Music from Spotify to PC/Mac
Only Spotify Premium users are empowered to use the "Download" feature, but in fact all the music are just cached files stored to your PC or phone which are only playable within the Spotify App. Now with TuneFab Spotify Music Converter, you can have all songs downloaded and saved as local files on PC, which are easily accessible and playable. You can play these on Windows Media Player, iTunes, VLC player, or whatever player you like. In a word, it provides an efficient way for you to download music from Spotify without Premium.

Usually, if you are trying to download a whole playlist of songs from Spotify, it will take a while to finish the job.

This feature will help make sure that you can download as many songs as you can in with the super-fast speed. But this feature is currently available to Windows users only.
