How to disable downloads on PC


I have limited space on my hard disk and spotify songs take up 10GB. Since I have a good internet connection, I'd rather just stream the songs instead of downloading them when adding to library.
Is there a way to disable song downloading on my PC, but still enable it on my mobile phone?

Hey @fgjhnfgh, welcome to the community!


If you don't turn on the Download option from the playlists on Desktop, the app won't download the music to your hard drive at all.


Since each platform works as a unit, you can definitely download any playlist on mobile without worying that it'll automatically download the same playlist on desktop.


You can find all the info on how to use Offline Mode here.


All the best.
