Limit to 'offline' playlists?

I just spotted something in your FAQ about a limit of 3,333 tracks offlined? Is this true, and if so can you explain why? I realise as you need to re-sync updated tracks for all sorts of reasons, if someone has thousands of tracks offline then they could be re-syncing forever - but I have sort of got into the habit of offlining ever since the problems we had with BT throttling Spotify! It's great having a streaming service for music discovery, but here in the UK our broadband infrastructure is so flaky we can't rely on being able to use your service all the time if we don't offline. I tend to offline anything I 'collect', am I not using Spotify as you expect I should I wonder?

Hello!

Yes, that's true. Allow me to explain - Each person is allowed a limit of 10,000 songs offline, and a maximum of 3 devices with offline playlists. Hence the 3,333 number - that is for each device. So for example, I could have a party playlist at home on my laptop, a workout one on my phone and maybe some classical to focus at work.

I see, so do I get 10,000 in total on my Macbook if I don't use any on my iOS devices?

Will I be able to access these "offline" song files in programs other than Spotify?

Not sure what you mean noSpleen - Spotify playlists are part of the Spotify mobile app and the desktop app - not sure how you could use them outside of Spotify? You need Spotify to play Spotify files?

Sadly not - It's still limited to 3,333 "per device", which includes the Macbook too.

Ok, I better get used to trusting my broadband connection with SpotiServers then! Maybe just offline the classical albums - its gonna be hard...

Is there any hope of getting this limit increased (or waived) in the future?

Very, very, very unlikely.

Have we been given a reason behind the limit?  It would be much better (for me) to have one playlist on my phone with 10k tracks, than 3 separate playlists that aggregate to 10k tracks.
