Open the Spotify App on your Mac.

On the left pane you have Browse and Radio, then (title) YOUR MUSIC and at the bottom you see "Local Files".

Click on this, you will see this list will all songs. Click on a title. On the far Right you will see 3 dots. Click on the dots and it will give you the option "reveal in finder".

I just figured this out, not sure if it's the same on your computer.

Anyway, hope this helps.

Hi. In the Windows version the cache directory is listed in the options - do you have this in the Mac version too?

Generally, the two locations they could be stored at are here -

* ~/Library/Caches/com.spotify.Client
* ~/Library/Application Support/Spotify

I think Apple or Spotify have changed this since you posted. The only files in my Caches folder are com.Apple.somethingorother.

what happens if you don't have any folder titled 'storage'? all i have once i get to com.spotify.client is 'Data', 'fsCacheData', and 'Browser'. What do I do if the storage folder isn't there? What do I doooooooooo!?!!

They must have changed it again because I don't have Cache listed there...

Having the same problem.

It's hard to find and use the local files.

Also, even if my playlists show "Downloaded.", I couldn't find out where they are.
