Didn't want to start a new topic so i would like to post some additional questions to this posted by Spotiras regarding  the 3,333 offline synced song limit. 

 

If i reach the 3,333 cap and want to sync some more I would have to delete some of synced track or maybe my cap is just exosted and can sync nothing beyont whats already synced  in the future?

 

As to this point I've understood all that I could find in FAQ and on the forums about the 3,333 but this remains still unclear for me.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

You can only ever have 3,333 tracks offline synced on a device at any given time, however there is no limit on the number of times you can change which tracks are synced. So if you sync 3,333 decide you want a different playlist for example, just unmark some tracks as downloaded and then you can sync up to 3,333 tracks again.

Given the changing landscape, and the fact that both Rdio and Google Play Music All Access do NOT have a limit on the number of offline tracks a mobile device can hold, will Spotify look into getting this restriction removed?

 

It seems fair, given that all services are the same price (minus the Google discount for now). Same price should equal same parameters.

The limit is down to the licensing agreements Spotify has with the record labels. Since you can store 3,333 tracks on up to 3 devices that is ~10k tracks you can have offline. I never really understand anyone who says they need more, you are aware 3,333 tracks is approx 9 days worth of music (playing 24 hours a day) :P ?

Sorry to add to an old thread again.


Couple of other questions:


I'm assuming the 3333 limit applies to songs that you don't already own (i.e. you can sync an unlimited number of your own tracks that you've purchased through spotify/have as mp3 files etc)?

 

Also, is there a way to find out how near you are  to the 3333 limit?  Specifically on Android and windows for me.

Yes, you are correct - it only applies to unique spotify offline stored tracks.

Unfortunately not, just good old fashioned adding is the only way I know!

Still think this is a dumb limit, I will eventually reach it, and I might have to switch back to Play Music unless this limit can be lifted... Even though my mobile phone plan provides Spotify Premium for me.

Thanks,
