Can I Listen to Spotify in My Car Without Using Data?

If the location where you are driving does not support the Internet connection, you won’t be able to listen to your Spotify playlists in good quality. Moreover, Spotify online uses 0.5-8 MB per one song depending on the settings. It does not seem too much at first, but when you listen to music for just an hour, you may use about 150MB of your data. It takes about 6 GB per month, and it is a lot. 

However, you can save your costs and listen to Spotify music without using data. It is easy to do if you have the Premium subscription. Then, you can download your playlists to your device and listen to them offline without wasting your mobile data at all. If you have this subscription, you can download up to 3,333 songs on three different devices. Unfortunately, if you use a free account, downloading is not possible.

You can see that offline playback is quite easy. Choose the playlist you want to download, tap the ‘Download’ button which is located on the right part of the chosen playlist. If you want to continue using Spotify on the web, you will need a reliable Internet connection and the use of data.

When you have chosen the playlists to download on Spotify, choose ‘Available offline”, so that you can have a permit to listen to them in your car. You also need to check the ‘Offline Mode’ tab in the menu for playback. Spotify won’t be using data in this case. Though, after 30 days of such listening, you need to reconnect to Spotify to check your account and its type of subscription.

You can play downloaded music when the files are in MP3, FLAC, or WAV formats. After the download is completed, you may copy the music to the USB flash drive or prefer to listen to it via Bluetooth.

Remember that ‘Offline Mode’ on Spotify is available only for customers with the Premium account. It helps sync and stream all albums or playlists to listen to them in your car without Wi-Fi or Internet connection.

The other question is whether you can listen to Spotify in this way without the premium account. You can do it. You need to install a reliable Spotify playlist converter or downloader.
