Strangely, the ability to make albums available off-line in My Music is only available on mobile devices so yes, you'll need to use album playlists on your laptop for now.

I have this same issue. I can't believe it has been 3 years and this feature is still not available. Spotify, please add the ability to download albums for offline use in the app for Mac without the need to create a playlist. I have a premium subscription, a give-in for offline access since you can't have offline access without the subscription.

I just came back to Spotify from Apple Music, assuming that this issue had been resolved. Don't know what it takes to get Spotify to sort these things out...

Good news!


A new desktop app update with a new design is currently rolling out to all users. One of the new features is the ability to download albums and podcasts just like you can in the mobile app.


You can read more info about the new desktop app in this news article:

Introducing a New Spotify Experience Across Desktop App and Web Player 


The desktop team also has a blog post in the community about it:
