Download Spotify Music to Mac for Offline Playback Forever

Spotify Music has long been recognized as the largest streaming music service platform in the world. The best thing about this software is that it not only provides endless music resources for paying users but also free users can get close to its rich music resource library. With the continuous increase in the number of fans, Spotify Music is also constantly improving to meet the different needs of users. But no matter how perfect it is, free users won't be able to unlock the same perks that paid users can enjoy. Because Spotify Music needs to rely on constant renewals to make a profit.

And when you become a paid Spotify Music subscriber, you can't actually download songs either. Especially some Mac users need to download songs in special formats, such as AIFF, ALAC. None of this can be accomplished simply by subscribing to Spotify Music. Even if there are shortcuts, you can only find them here. Without further ado, let's discuss how to batch download Spotify songs, albums, playlists, and other audio files to Mac in common formats.
