How to Record Spotify Songs as MP3 Files

When it comes to streaming music services, most people would think of Spotify, the most popular giant in the streaming world, with 381 million active users.

Different from many other streaming music services, Spotify is a freemium service, who offers basic features - getting access to the massive music library, organizing playlists, explore new music and so on, to Spotify Free users with advertisements and limitations. Compared to Free users, Spotify paid subscribers are provided with additional features, including listen to ad-free Spotify songs, get improved streaming quality, download up to 10,000 songs for offline listening …

Though Spotify provides us with all kinds of good features, it may disappoint us in some ways. As we all know, Spotify, like any other music streaming service, adopts encryption protection to restrict us to listen to Spotify songs only within Spotify app and deny us downloading songs from Spotify as real local files for transferring. To get rid of the limitations, as a result, a great number of Spotify users turn to Spotify recorders to record songs from Spotify to a popular format, like MP3.
