Spotify has become the most popular music streaming service among the music service providers worldwide. With millions of active users, it provides users with three types of subscription – Spotify Free, Spotify Premium ($9.99) and Spotify Family ($14.99). Spotify offers a massive music library and enables all kinds of subscribers to listen to up-to-date music online anywhere anytime and it doesn’t take up too much space on your hard drive. But the downside of it, like other streaming music services, is that we are unable to download music from Spotify as local file, which you can only stream it online, or offline with the Spotify official apps only.
Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) is an audio file format standard used for storing sound data for personal computers and other electronic audio devices. The format was developed by Apple Inc. in 1988 based on Electronic Arts' Interchange File Format (IFF, widely used on Amiga systems) and is most commonly used on Mac systems.
Apple's Macbook has been widely used in many countries nowadays. If you have Spotify installed on your Mac, download the music to AIFF format must be very convenient to stream.
