Streaming service expands from 3,333 songs on three devices to 10,000 tracks per device for up to five devices.

Lifting its vetoed 3,333-song download limit, Spotify confirmed on Wednesday (Sept. 11) that users are now finally able to download up to 10,000 songs to their devices when doing offline listening. 

According to Rolling Stone, the streaming service's new software now also allows downloads on up to five devices instead of the original three, quickly becoming one of the most favorable updates yet for Spotify subscribers and music lovers alike. 

 

“At Spotify, we’re always working on improving the experience for our users. 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,” a Spotify spokesperson stated after a series of users noticed the change. 

The spokesperson added, "While the new limit of 50,000 songs across five devices is still not an infinite allowance, it should make the Spotify experience more akin to what it was in the age of owning music and not just leasing it."
