Spotify has always been providing three main plans for its subscribers to access to over 50 million songs online or offline: Free, Premium, Family. Each plan has its own strengths and limits. But if you want to get maximum flexibility when using Spotify's services, then the paid subscription plan (Premium and Family) gives you everything, as Spotify Free users must tolerate adverts in between tracks, listen to playlists or albums in Shuffle-only mode and are confined to standard sound quality and five tracks skips per hour. Upgrading to Premium plan will remove all these limits, and furthermore, get the ability to download music from Spotify for offline streaming.
However, is it possible to download music from Spotify with a Spotify free account without upgrading to Premium plan? The answer is definitely yes. Move on, below we will introduce a smart tool that enables Spotify free users to download any Spotify tracks for offline streaming without upgrading to Premium plan.
