Previously we've updated a post on how to convert Apple Music to MP3, and it's helping lots of Apple Music fans get DRM-free M4P tracks successfully. Today, we’ll introduce another great tool which enables you to convert Spotify playlist to MP3.

It's true that Spotify is one of the best streaming music services of all. It offers you a chance to listen to online music across multiple platforms. But the free music comes with some limitations, such as ads, internet connection required, no offline listening, etc. To remove those limitations, you will have two options - Get a Spotify Premium or Get a Spotify Music Converter.

I won't suggest you subscribe to Spotify Premium because any song downloaded through Spotify Premium is in OGG format which is DRM protected.
