Downloadable Tracks and playlists for Desktop Mac or PC

Hi,

Not sure if this idea has been mentioned before, but I think it would be a good idea if Spotify allowed premium subscribers to download tracks and playlists off their servers and on to their Mac or PC. I think that this idea would give Spotify an extra edge over competitor music streaming services. This would work by users opening up Spotify and searching a particular track. The user would then see a download button next to the track, giving them a choice to download the track on to the PC or Mac.
I welcome feedback on the idea and ways to improve the idea.

Please give it some kudos if you want to see this implemented in Spotify.

Hi.

Some further explanation is needed. In the first sentence you state"---download tracks and playlists off their servers and on to their Mac or PC without having to open up the Spotify client..."

A bit further down you write "This would work by users opening up Spotify and searching a particular track. The user would then see a download button next to the track, giving them a choice to download the track on to the PC or Mac."

 

Note the boldface text. 

English is not my first language, which may also be the cause of the confusion 🙂

You might also want to support an idea about bringing back the (paid) download store here.

Everyone should support my idea of downloadable songs and playlists for premium subscribers on the Desktop client for Mac and windows give it some kodos to get it implemented and improve the idea: 

 

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Downloadable-Tracks-and-playlists-for-Desktop-Mac-or-PC/...

 

You would be able to download your music and playlists from spotify and have access to it at anytime on your computer, the best part is that it could be included as part of your subscription.

 

I posted this idea in August last year and nothing progressed since, so as mentioned before give some kodos and suggest ideas to improve it. I am open to suggestions.
