[Your Music] Make 'Your Music' offline on Desktop

This is a follow up of the idea: Ability to make "Your Music" offline


The issue is that on the desktop client, you cannot save music from "Your Library" offline at all, you must create a playlist.




Spotify Desktop (Your Music)


Notice that there's no way to make that particular album in "Your Music" available offline.


Yet on my Android client, I see a Download option near this album to make it available Offline:


Android (Your Music)



The only items that present such an option on the desktop client are playlists as shown below:


Desktop (Playlists)



On iTunes (Apple Music) however, I can make anything available offline on my desktop:


iTunes (My Music)



This for me is the biggest problem with Spotify and why I'm currently an Apple Music subscriber.  In general, the desktop client lags behind features on the mobile clients which are actually far better.


There are many more examples of differences that I can demonstrate, but this is the most important.


The ability to make My Music available offline on mobiles appeared more than a year ago.  Can we please have this and further differences addressed on the desktop client soon?

Hi everyone!


We've spoken to the team and they still think is a good idea. As there aren't any immediate plans to implement it, we'll still be keeping the status as 'Good Idea' for now. 


Please know your feedback is reaching the internal teams at Spotify, and they're aware of the votes around this idea.


If there are any updates, we'll let you know.

Spotify really needs to make this asap. 
I was thinking in getting the family plan, but if they don't put again the Available Offline switch I'll have to try another problems, wich for me is fine. 
There are many little things like this, but really annoying that makes me really think about leaving spotify.


Good grief, have just subscribed to Premium so I can sort out music to listen to offline while travelling and am staggered to find that this feature is not available on my desktop!!! 


After an hour searching and following instructions that seemed to be impossible to implement (it is not at all clear what device instructions apply to) I was looking for a way to post a plea for help when I saw this thread. Get your act together, Spotify, or I'll be unsubscribing when I get home.

i just make one playlist. called megamix,, and it is available offline, 


every couple weeks or whenever i just click "songs" then highlight one track, cmd-a (command a   or contral a   for windows) and click drag to that playlist.


simple.... well, if you have basic computer skills then everything to do with spotify is.


The original thread asking for this is 2 years old. This should tell you everything you need to know. They have no intention of ever implementing this.

darn guys, make that 'available offline' feature! 


We need this. I save a music, after that this track is being offline on my phone but desktop...
This is emergency.

(Sorry for my english, i still learning) :(


Come on already what are you waiting for... this is one of the most talked about and most important features of the service and we can't use it? I guess a simple switch is not hard to implement! We went to the moon and we can't add an offline switch on "my songs"...


Still no movement with this.. good work spotify!

Casual Listener

Oh come on Spotify! This can´t be such a big effort!!! Get it on please!!! And while you are at it, you could also get rif of this ridiculously small number of offline songs you are allowing. Thanks in advance!



2 years and nothing... What's the point of whole "Ideas", if spotify improvements aren't done at all.
