Albums still not downloadable on desktop after years

Status: Not An Issue

Why can I download an album on my mobile device but not on my desktop? This is a simple thing to add.

 

And no, I do not want to convert every album to a playlist thus causing my mobile device playlist section to be filled with "Album" instead of "Playlist". This is why there is an 'Album' section is it not?

 

This is frustrating and annoying, please pass this on to the appropriate department and spare 1 hour of coding time to add this feature.

 

Thank you

Hey @abroesky 

 

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:

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