Spotify is improving of one of its most annoying, arbitrary limits. The music streaming app has increased the cap for maximum number of offline downloads, which was previously stuck at 3,333 songs per device (on a maximum of three devices).
As reported by Rolling Stone, that limit has now been raised to 10,000 songs — and you can download that many tunes on five different devices instead of just three. So you’re looking at 50,000 in all. “At Spotify, we are always working on improving the experience for our users,” a company spokesperson told Rolling Stone.
Unfortunately, Spotify’s other annoying ceiling — a 10,000 track limit on your personal library — remains very much in place. That is really the one I keep running into. Once you hit it, you have constantly got to pluck out albums or artists you are not listening to regularly. Hopefully the bump up in offline downloads is a sign that Spotify might soon also raise the maximum library size, as well. I can save 50,000 songs to a handful of devices, but I am unable to have those same songs in my library? Doesn’t make a ton of sense. Please fix.
