Whenever you need to extract Spotify songs offline, before downloading, you should know 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 tracks inside the Spotify app, but not the ability to extract Spotify music as MP3s. In other words, you can't listen to those offline Spotify songs on devices without Spotify app.

So is there still any luck to play Spotify on MP3 players? Yes, if only you get a specially designed Spotify to MP3 ripper which could extract MP3 from Spotify music for you. Now check out the best MP3 extractor for Spotify and the complete guide on how to use it to rip MP3 from Spotify music.
