As the king of music streaming services, Spotify always offers two main tiers for its subscribers to access over 100 million songs: Premium and Free. Spotify Premium costs $11.99 a month and for that, you can listen to whatever music you want without any limitations in either the desktop or mobile apps and download music for offline playback. Spotify’s free tier is free, but it’s ad-supported. When using the Spotify app with a free account, you can listen to any song, album, or playlist at any time in any order, but must tolerate adverts in between tracks and are confined to standard sound quality. Furthermore, the most frustrating thing is that Spotify Free users can’t download Spotify music for offline playback.

Of course, upgrading to a Premium plan will remove all these limits and get the ability to play music offline. But beyond that, you can also turn to a piece of powerful Spotify music downloader -- TunePat Spotify Downloader to download your favorite Spotify songs in MP3, AAC, or other popular formats. Keep reading the following text, we will show you the complete guide on how to download songs from Spotify Free with TunePat.

How to Download Spotify Music to PC Without Premium?

TunePat Spotify Converter is available on both Windows and Mac computers, here we take the Windows version as an example to show you the detailed steps about how to download Spotify music with a Free account.

Step 1 Select a conversion mode:

TunePat's Spotify Converter offers two conversion modes: App and Web player. The App mode requires an installed Spotify app on your computer, while the Web player mode does not. The content in the Web player mode is directly read from the embedded web player. For better output sound quality, we recommend choosing the App mode, while the Web player has faster conversion speed (up to 10x). Please select according to your needs. Regardless of the mode, you can use a Free Spotify account to obtain ad-free local audio files.

Step 2 Finish the output format:

As a Free user, please note that when you use a Free account, the maximum bitrate is 128kbps (AAC format) on the web player and 160kbps (Ogg/Vorbis format) on the mobile and desktop apps. This means that when you choose the App conversion mode and the output format uses the default Auto, you can receive 160kbps local Spotify files in OGG format.

Of course, you can also convert the output format to MP3 or other commonly used formats in the "Settings" module. Then, you can adjust additional parameters based on your preferences, such as bit rate, sample rate, output file storage location, output file name, and output file arrangement.

Note: If you prefer podcasts over songs on Spotify, it is advisable to use the Web player mode. This is because the podcast quality across all devices is around 96kbit/s, except for web players, which can reach 128kbit/s.

Step 3 Select Spotify music to convert:

Once setup is complete, open the Spotify content you want to convert in the Spotify app or Spotify web player window. Click the "Click to add" button on the right.

The pop-up window will then display all the convertible songs, all pre-selected by default. You can also check or uncheck them manually. Click the "Add" button to add the desired tracks to the Home screen.
