Part 2. FAQs About Downloading Spotify Playlist

Q1: Why Spotify won't download a playlist?

Spotify only allows Spotify Premium users to download Spotify songs, playlists, and albums for listening offline. If you are a free user, of course, you can't download Spotify playlists within Spotify. But if Spotify won't download a playlist even after you subscribe to Spotify Premium, you should consider whether the network connection of your device is not stable, because this would be the most direct reason causing Spotify to fail to download songs for you. Also, if your music library has saved up to 10000 downloaded songs, it has reached the highest amount that Spotify allows to download so it doesn't process new downloads for you anymore.

Q2: How do I save someone else's playlist on Spotify?

If you want to save the Spotify playlist created by someone else, you can create a new playlist and save all its songs to your own one, then process the music download in your Spotify account. Also, you can use TuneFab Spotify Music Converter to open his or her playlist in the web player, then drag it to download it just with one click!

Q3: How do I change a playlist picture on Spotify?

By opening the Spotify playlist within the app, then click the picture and Spotify will allow you to set another image you like to be the new cover freely.
