Q: I just began paying Spotify Premium in order to download all my tracks for offline use. But after downloaded, it appears there's no Spotify tracks or playlists are obtained as mp3s in my drive. How can I find and play those offline Spotify songs with Windows Media Player? Or how to transfer them to my MP3 player? Did I miss anything? I just want to extract and download Spotify music as MP3. What should I do?

No matter why you need to extract Spotify songs offline, before downloading, you should know the fact that Spotify adopts DRM copyright technology to ensure artists are fairly paid for track plays. That's to say, a Spotify premium subscription only gives you access to Spotify's massive catalogue, and the ability to download and play tracks offline inside the Spotify app, not the ability to download tracks as mp3's. In other words, once downloaded, you can only listen to those Spotify songs on devices which support Spotify app. The alternatives to extract online songs into MP3 format is switching to other music sources, or using a specially designed Spotify MP3 ripper to extract MP3 tracks from Spotify music. Here in this article, we'll focus on the second option and show you the complete guide on how to extract and save songs from Spotify to MP3.
