How to Download Full Albums on the Spotify Desktop App

How to Download Full Albums on the Spotify Desktop App

In this article, we show you how to download an album for offline listening on Spotify for desktop, along with some limitations to be aware of.

You might think you need a constant internet connection to listen to your music on Spotify for desktop, but that’s not the case. In fact, you can download entire albums to listen to offline.

Before you try to download an album on Spotify for desktop (available on Windows and macOS), ensure that you have enough spare storage space. This varies per album and based on audio quality, but have at least 1GB spare. Also check that your internet connection is active.

When an album has been downloaded to your computer, you won’t need an internet connection to listen. That said, if you want to force offline listening on Spotify:

In Offline Mode, unavailable songs will be grayed out. If you try to play them, a message will appear to warn that, “This content is not available”.

You might not even be able to access artist or album pages; instead, you could see a message that says, “Not available while you’re offline”.

As such, you should always access your downloaded music through a playlist or Your Library. Here the downloaded songs and albums will appear as they usually do, available to play offline.

You can change the folder where Spotify stores offline music. Bear in mind that you can’t browse to this folder and launch music, as you still need to manage everything through the Spotify app. Nevertheless, it is handy to change to a folder on another drive.
