Spotify goes offline


No, we’re not turning off the music – we’re extending the popular ‘offline mode’ that is available on Spotify Mobile and bringing it to your computer!

Starting today, Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to select their playlists and set them to be ‘Available offline’. Those playlists will then be synced to your computer so you can continue to listen to your favorite tunes if you have a slow connection or even if you have no connection at all. Each computer will be able to store up to 3,333 tracks at a time.


To use ‘offline mode’ you’ll need to be running the latest version of Spotify and you may have to log out and back in for the feature to kick in.

So don’t let the lack an internet connection stop you from listening to Spotify – upgrade to Spotify Premium today and sync your music.

French summary:
Le Mode hors connexion est désormais disponible sur ordinateur. A partir d’aujourd’hui les abonnés Spotify Premium ont la possibilité de rendre les listes de lecture de leur choix « disponibles hors connexion ». Elles seront synchronisées dans l’ordinateur, ainsi vous pourrez écouter vos titres préférés même si vous ne disposez pas d’une connexion Internet.


  1. This a joke!

    I am a premium subscriber and the offline function has been disabled.

    I will cancel my subscription if this does not get sorted out ASAP!
    So far I have Spotify installed on my iPhone, MacBook Pro and Mac Mini. That’s just 3 devices and they are never used at the same time yet offline mode has been withdrawn.

    In that case I’m withdrawing my payments to you!!
