Can you listen to Spotify offline?
Yes, you can listen to Spotify offline using the Offline Mode. Spotify Premium boasts an Offline Mode that features all your downloaded playlists and albums, allowing you to listen to them even without an internet connection.
However, remember that you must download a song before you can listen to it in the Offline Mode.
Unfortunately, you can’t download individual songs in the Spotify app. For that, you’ll have to put each of your favorite songs into a separate playlist and then download the entire playlist. To download playlists, press the download (downward arrow) button in each playlist.
Note that you cannot download playlists with Spotify’s free version; this feature only exists for Premium subscribers. Once you’ve downloaded the playlist, you just have to turn on the Offline Mode to listen to your downloaded music/podcasts without Wi-Fi.
