Spotify has recently done something that most people probably wouldn’t have even noticed. That is unless you have tried to download more than 3,333 songs for offline access. If you are one of those heavy users who happened to reach the limit, then you will be happy to hear that a recent update by the Swedish company has tripled that number. Spotify is now allowing premium subscribers to download up to 10,000 songs. They also increased the number of devices that you can download on from three to five. That means that if you really wanted to you could download up to 50,000 songs.
The news was first reported by Rolling Stone, who received the following statement from a Spotify spokesman.
“At Spotify, we’re always working on improving the experience for our users. We can now confirm that we have increased the number of offline tracks per device — from 3,333 on three devices to 10,000 tracks per device for up to five devices.”
This news comes off the heels of an announcement made last month to add Showtime into their already discounted ($4.99) premium subscription bundle for college students.
This is a massive increase by Spotify, but it still falls short of the 100,000 songs permitted for download by Apple Music.
