How can I download Spotify music for offline streaming? Is Premium membership required for it? Spotify offers three types of subscriptions: Spotify Free, Spotify Premium ($9.99 per month), and Spotify Family ($14.99 per month). If you are a Spotify Free user, you can listen to tons of songs, discover new music, share playlist with friends, etc.
However, offline mode is not available on Spotify Free, only Premium subscribers can download Spotify songs for offline playback.
