Part 1. Reasons for Spotify Premium Not Working Offline

Before recommending the way to fix Spotify Premium not working offline, it's of necessity to let you know why it doesn't work offline. Here's the two main reasons:

1. The Downloaded Files Are Cache Files

The majority of Spotify tracks are downloaded and saved as cache memory files (The .cache file extension is used to store cache information for a variety of different Internet browsers.) instead of single files formats like MP3. In other words, it's merely a cache memory file which does not support direct music playing. Hence, your Spotify Premium offline is not working in such circumstances.

2. The Downloaded Files Is Encrypted with DRM Protection

Another reason why downloaded Spotify Premium songs are not playing offline is that Spotify music is encrypted with DRM Protection. Digital rights management (DRM) is to prevent unauthorized redistribution of digital media and restrict the ways consumers can copy content they've purchased. Hence, even though the Spotify songs you downloaded are single audio file formats, you still cannot play them in other devices without removing DRM protection.
