Part 3. FAQs - The Frequently Asked Problems When Using Spotify Family

After you have subscribed to Spotify Premium for Family, you may encounter some problems when you are using it. Here, I have collected few FAQs which users frequently asked for you. Hope they could do you a favor.


Q1: "Why can't I receive the invite from the owner?"

A: Firstly, check your spam folder to see whether you have received the email. Then, make sure the owner is logged in on the Spotify account page before sending you the invite. If both of these methods are not working, you can ask the owner to resend the invite.


Q2: "How can I change the wrong address?"

A: Unfortunately, you are not allowed to change the address that you have entered while registered. The only way to solve this problem is to unsubscribe the plan on your original account, sign out everywhere and then create a new account to subscribe again with the corrected address.


Q3: "How can I leave a Premium for Family plan?"

A: If you are the member of the plan, you don't have the right to leave by yourself. You can only ask the original subscriber to remove you from the plan. Only the subscriber has the authority to manage the list. You have to be aware that you are only allowed to quit one plan and join another once a year.

From the table above, we can obviously see that Spotify Free Users are facing many limitations, especially the one that they cannot download songs for offline listening. And even for Spotify Premium users, they can only download 3,333 songs on each device. Additional, one Spotify account can only be authorized on up to 3 different devices. Luckily, there is one way for Spotify users to listen to Spotify songs such limitations. That is to convert Spotify Music to MP3. Let's see how to make it come true. 


Part 5. Tips: Convert Spotify Songs to MP3

It is a common fact that Spotify songs are in OGG format and protected by DRM. Therefore, users must remove Spotify songs' DRM and convert them to MP3 format before they can listen to the songs offline freely. And TuneFab Spotify Music Converter is developed to make this happen.


This program can remove Spotify songs' DRM and convert the protected-OGG format to MP3, M4A, WAV or FLAC. After that, you can save them to your computer or transfer them to smartphone or tablet for enjoying offline. What I like most is that the output quality is excellent as the original one. Even without Spotify program, you can still listen to Spotify songs offline without ads disturbing.

Let's check out how it works.

Step 1. Launch TuneFab Spotify Music Converter

Download TuneFab Spotify Music Converter and launch it.

Step 2. Add Songs from Spotify

Click "Add Files". Then drag songs, playlists, albums, artists, tracks, etc. from Spotify program to the Converter.

Step 3. Select Output Format

Go to "Options" > "Advanced" to select MP3 as your final output format.

Step 4. Select an Output Folder

Under "Options", click "General" to change an output folder for saving the converted Spotify songs.

Step 5. Start Converting

Click on "Convert" and wait for the conversion done.

Step 6. Enjoy the Songs

Check the converted songs through "History" and enjoy your Spotify songs.
