How to Export and Backup Spotify Playlists

“I want to know if there is any way to make a backup of the Spotify playlists. I am thinking of a simple playlist file that can be exported to my computer as backup.”

For various reasons, we may need to export or backup Spotify playlists to our local computer - Some people prefer listening to Spotify songs offline or transferring Spotify playlists to other devices for enjoying while others would like to copy and backup Spotify playlists in case of accidentally deleting.

However, as we all know, Spotify is a streaming music service, it’s impossible for us to directly download or save any songs from Spotify to our local computer, because of the Digital Rights Management (short for DRM) restriction.
