Some of us want to download Spotify songs on Android phone as it gives us the liberty to listen to our favorite tracks when there is no Internet access or the bandwidth is too low to stream online music. Apart from that some of us like to download these songs for gifting purposes to our loved ones. Below mentioned are three software through which you can download Spotify music on Android phone.
Method 1: Download Spotify Music to Android Phone Using Native App
One of the most important reasons why Spotify being used widely is that you can use Spotify on multiple devices, including Windows PC, Mac, iPhone and of course thoese Android devices. Spotify Android app is totally free and you can download it from Play Store. And there is built-in download option with Spotify Android app. Hence, this is the easiest method to download Spotify music to Android phone; but on the flip side, you have to buy a subscription plan ($9.99/month) to enable download feature on Android phone.

That's it, the song will download within a few minutes depending on your Internet connection. You can now listen to it in the offline mood by simply tapping on it.
Be warned! You have to subscribe to Spotify Premium plan to use this download feature. And You won't be able to listen to these songs through other music players as these songs are DRM protected and use Ogg Vorbis format which is not supported by other music players apart from Spotify. So if you want to download Spotify music without premium or remove the protection, then the following two methods are great for that.

Method 3: Download Spotify Music to Android Phone Using TunePat
For Windows user, Method 2 is the best choice all the times. However, TunePat is much better option when it comes to downloading songs from Spotify on Mac, which is much different from Windows OS. This app can easily download and convert Spotify music according to preferred output format without the need of premium account. And the download speed is bleeding fast as it has a powerful parsing engine for the Spotify music link to be downloaded.
Step 1. Download and launch the TunePat software on your computer. Go to the "Settings" tab at the bottom right corner. You can choose the format from MP3, AAC, WAV or FLAC. For downloading them to Android keep the format to MP3.

The downloaded files can be found by clicking on the "History" tab at the bottom right corner or you can go to the folder that you have chosen as your output folder to access the tracks. After download, simply transfer them to Android phone with USB cable.
TunePat is an useful software as it gives you a lot of customized options to choose from like the song format and output folder customization but I found that the quality of the tracks are not maintained at its best after the conversion. Besides the software uses too much memory, which can slow down the conversion and the download process.
You can try all the methods mentioned above to download Spotify music to Android phone but when it comes to quality retention and speed, Spotify Music Downloader is the clear winner. Besides this software has got a very user friendly and swift interface which can be used by people who don't like complex procedures. So the next time you want to download your favorite Spotify music, give this a go and you won't be disappointed.
