Spotify is a popular digital music streaming service with over 30 million songs, which is available across a range of devices, including computers, phones, tablets, game consoles, speakers, TVs, and cars. The app is totally free to download, and there’s no cost for basic features such as playing music. It offers 3 subscription options to its users: Free, Premium ($9.99 per month, $4.99 for students) and Premium for family($ 14.99 per month).

Spotify now has over 140 million active users and over 70 million premium users in 61 countries.
Although you can listen to Spotify with free subscription, there are some limitations: ads between tracks, shuffle only on mobile, no offline listening and 14-day access abroad. Spotify premium users can download playlists for offline listening, but the songs downloaded are in DRM protected Ogg Vorbis format, which can only be played with Spotify app. And you can only download up to 3,333 songs per device, on a maximum of 3 different devices.
