It is a pity that Spotify only allows streaming music online through 1 device. So it turns out to be a problem - if you switch to another device and play Spotify songs, the currently streaming one will be stopped immediately. So is there actually a way to play Spotify on multiple devices?

Of course you can. The simplest method to make Spotify playable on multiple devices is by downloading songs offline, instead of streaming them online. So in this article, you will be introduced with 3 ways to download Spotify songs and make it possible to play Spotify on multiple devices. Now, let's have a look.


Spotify Device Limitation Overview

Before going to the ways to remove Spotify's limitations and make Spotify playable on multiple devices at once, you'd better get a clear understanding of the device limitations set by Spotify at first.

Generally, Spotify has limited a single user (no matter you are a free user or the Spotify Premium subscriber) to stream Spotify online on only 1 device. But for the family account, the available devices will be set to 6. As a result, the only way for you to stream Spotify online through multiple devices is only possible when your Spotify account is a family account.

Instead of online streaming, if you can get Spotify songs offline, the device limitation will be removed. For sure that the offline feature is only provided for Spotify Premium and Spotify Family subscribers. These users can be allowed to play Spotify on multiple devices (offline) on up to 3 or 6 devices respectively. As a result, it is said that, turning Spotify playback to offline mode is the simplest and most practical way to make it possible to enjoy Spotify Music on different devices.

How to Play Spotify on Multiple Devices via Offline Mode

So we come to the first method here. To play Spotify on multiple devices officially, the simplest choice is to subscribe to Spotify Premium and get the offline music playback available on more than 1 device. Here would mainly introduce the tutorial guiding you to enable the "Offline Mode" on after subscribing to Spotify Premium.

Step 1. Open Spotify software for desktop or its mobile app for signing in with your Spotify Premium account.
