Being completely disconnected from Wi-Fi and data, whether in an airplane or rustic cabin in the woods - doesn’t mean you need to be without your favorite music or podcasts. If you’re a Premium subscriber, it only takes a few simple steps while you’re still at home and on Wi-Fi to download your favorite content and ensure it’s available when you go off the grid or up in the air.
First, if you’d like to use Wi-Fi to download, go to Settings > Music Quality > Download Using Cellular and check that the feature is set to the default "off". From there, it’s easy to download tracks and podcasts on your cell phone, tablet, or iPad:
If you’re using Spotify on desktop, but still want to take those songs or podcast episodes with you on your mobile device:
Note that if you’re seeing songs grayed out when you’re offline, it means they’re not downloaded and you won’t be able to play them without Wi-Fi. (It might be a good idea to experiment with going online before you board the plane). To see everything you’ve downloaded on your phone, check out the "Downloads" tab under "Your Library" on mobile.
Also know that there’s a maximum to the number of songs and podcasts you can download per device. If you do hit the limit, you can always go back and remove some existing downloads.
Plus, keep in mind that in order for Premium subscribers to keep all downloads available, you’ll need to connect your phone to Wi-Fi at least once every 30 days. So if you’re on an extended hiking trip, just make sure to connect to Wi-Fi at least once per month if you want to keep streaming.
Listen to music anywhere offline.
Enjoy nonstop music.
Even on mobile.

How To Play Music Offline Spotify
If you are a Spotify paid user, you can use Spotify in offline mode to enjoy Spotify songs offline.
Step 1: Go to the playlist, album, or podcast you want to download.
Step 2: Tap down-arrow icon to download.
Step 3: Go to Your Library, setting's, Playback and switch Offline on.
Sidify Spotify Music Converter is a popular tool to download songs from Spotify (Free) to your computer, and it offers Windows & Mac desktop versions.
Step 1: Download the Converter to your computer or tablet.
Step 2: Install it according to the instructions.
Step 3: Convert your songs from playlist Spotify to your computer.
Step 4: Rewrite songs to your phone or other device.
If you want to use Spotify offline, you need to make sure you’ve actually got some music downloaded to listen to. With Spotify Premium, you can download 30,000 songs for offline listening on five different devices. That’s 50,000 total tracks across everything.
Strangely, there’s no way to download individual songs; you have to download either albums or playlists.
Open Spotify and head to the album or playlist you want to save for offline listening. As long as you’re a Premium Subscriber, you’ll see a toggle that says Download. Tap it and the album or playlist will save to your phone. Once the songs are saved, you’ll see a little green arrow next to them to show it.
While just downloading the songs you listen to most often for offline listening will go a long way towards cutting your data usage, anything you haven't downloaded will still stream over mobile data. If you want to stop Spotify from ever streaming anything, so you avoid accidental data drains, you need to put it in Offline Mode.
From the Your Library tab, tap the setting's icon in the top right and select Playback.
Tap the Offline toggle to put Spotify in Offline Mode.
