Spotify raises offline download limit to 10,000 tracks

Spotify raises offline download limit to 10,000 tracks

Why it matters: For the majority of Android users, Spotify is the service of choice when it comes to music streaming. But for those who enjoy downloading huge music libraries onto their devices for offline listening, the app's download limits have been an annoying restriction. While the original download limit was set at 3,333 songs across three devices, this new one will essentially triple the total available downloads.

Another limit that has been raised is the number of devices that you can hold your downloaded tracks. If you use the service but still prefer the old-school method of listening to music, then you may have encountered this odd limit.

Thankfully, Spotify has now addressed the issue.

California governor signs law for clean energy by 2045
A new law in California sets a goal of phasing out all fossil fuels from the state's electricity system by the year 2045. If the EPA is returning power to the states, California's plan shows what some states may do with that power.

Spotify is letting you download a whole lot more music for offline listening - 6,667 more tracks, to be precise.

"At Spotify, we're always working on improving the experience for our users", a spokesperson for the Swedish company told Rolling Stone.

The music streaming platform has also upped the number of devices per account which are allowed to download and store music, going from three to five, meaning Spotify Premium users could, in theory, now listen to a whopping 50,000 songs when not connected to the internet. Still, the move will doubtlessly be appreciated by users. While the library limit does seem a little arbitrary, if each track is about three minutes long, 10,000 of them translates to roughly 500 hours of music.
