Spotify abandons prior download cap, now allows subscribers to save up to 10,000 tracks per device
While its questionable whether most casual Spotify subscribers would ever need to download 3,333 tracks, Spotify’s latest update expands the streaming service’s previous song download cap of 3,333 tunes per device. Spotify confirmed that they had increased the number of jams a listener could save on September 12.
“At Spotify, we’re always working on improving the experience for our users,” the company told Rolling Stone. “We can now confirm that we have increased the number of offline tracks per device — from 3,333 on three devices to 10,000 tracks per device for up to five devices.”
Some Spotify users noticed the newfound increased download capability before Spotify formally acknowledged the change. The prior limitation of 3,333 songs per device ranked as one of the top complaints among Spotify listeners, but it’s happy downloading for all subscribers given the streaming giant’s policy shift, which now allows for a total of 50,000 saved tracks across five devices.
