I just began using Spotify. Can I download music to my MP3 player directly or do I have to get it to Window Media Player? If I need to get music to WMP, how do I do that? Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
stoney is right on the ball here.
Spotify relies on a a "closed system" in order to ensure artists are fairly paid for track plays. This means that a Spotify premium subscription only gives you access to Spotify's massive catalgoue, and the ability to download and play tracks offline inside the Spotify applications, not the ability to download tracks as mp3's.
This does mean, that you can only listen to Spotify content on devices which have a supported Spotify application, such as iOS, android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7/8 and Symbian (also on the desktop!). If you wish to download tracks as mp3 files to transfer to windows media player or to a generic mp3 player then you will need to purchase those tracks from another source.
