Spotify is one of the most popular digital subscription services in the world, and as far as the service has come in the decade, it has been available, it has been a problem many years ago. For some mysterious reason, Spotify limits the number of songs that premium subscribers can download on the phone, tablet or computer for offline listening to 3,333. In this week, after many years of complaints, Spotify has addressed the problem.
In a software update that began rolling out this week, Spotify has formally tripled the number of songs subscribers can download to their devices. The users first noticed the change earlier this week, and Spotify confirmed the end of the change to Rolling Stone on Wednesday.
"At Spotify, we are always working to improve the experience for the users," a Spotify spokesman told Rolling Stone . "We can now confirm that we have increased the number of offline tracks per device ̵
Not only has the limit for disconnected tracks increased per device, but the number of devices has gone from three to five as well. In other words, you could potentially have 50,000 songs saved for offline listening, where the hardest limit was 9,9999. I'm not sure I'll ever need 50,000 songs on me (or even 10,000 for that matter ), but it's very nice to see Spotify address one of his most unpleasant problems. This may not be enough to regain leadership over Apple Music in the United States, but many Spotify Premium users will be pleased with the update.
