FAQs About Downloading Spotify Playlists

Q1: Why Spotify won't download a playlist?

Spotify only allows Spotify Premium users to download Spotify songs, playlists, and albums for listening offline by applying an encryption method called DRM (Digital Rights Management). 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 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: Can I transfer my Spotify playlist to my MP3 player?

Unfortunately, as all Spotify downloads are encrypted by DRM, you are not able to transfer any Spotify playlist to MP3 players. To listen to Spotify on MP3 players without Spotify app installed, you will be required to remove DRM from them first. For such a purpose, TuneFab Spotify Music Converter provides the best help.

Q3: How do I save someone else's playlist on Spotify?

If you want to save the Spotify playlist created by someone else, simply click/tap the "+" icon near the play button. The playlist will be saved to your library.

Add Others' Spotify Playlist

Or if you simply want to add several songs of the playlist to your library, you can create a new playlist and add the desired songs from others' playlist to your own one.

Q4: How do I change a playlist picture on Spotify?

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