Spotify users can now download up to 10,000 songs for offline listening per device, up from the previous allowance of 3,333 songs per device, Rolling Stone is reporting.
In addition to more songs per device, Spotify now allows users to download songs on up to five different devices instead of just three with a single subscription.
A number of power-users first noticed that they were able to save more than 3,333 songs this week, and the Swedish streaming giant confirmed the change on Wednesday to Rolling Stone. “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,” a Spotify spokesperson says.
Spotify offers a massive catalog of more than 35 million songs with no listening limit, but some users found the old download limit a deal breaker. The new allowance will, however, fix that for most subscribers.
While the new limit of 50,000 songs across five devices is still not an infinite allowance, it should make the Spotify experience more akin to what it was in the age of downloading mp3s.
