Spotify triples download limit to 10,000 tracks per device

Good news: Spotify just increased the number of songs you can download

Spotify's latest update triples download limit for offline listening

Why it matters: For the majority of Android users, Spotify is the service of choice when it comes to music streaming. Keep that in mind before you start downloading every album in sight, but otherwise enjoy listening to music without worrying about signal. According to a report from Rolling Stone, the streaming giant is planning to rollout a new update, set to nullify pre-existing download limitations. That seems like plenty to me, but now you can store significantly more music for Wi-Fi-free playback: up to 10,000 tracks per device on up to five devices. Now, Spotify has changed the maximum number of songs that users can grab. On top of that, the company is raising the number of devices you can have associated with your account from three to five. The previous limit was 3,300 tracks on three devices. "At Spotify, we're always working on improving the experience for our users".

While it's not quite the smorgasbord of over 35 million songs that online access to Spotify will net you, for music junkies this is definitely a huge improvement.

Spotify Premium users can download albums and playlists for offline listening, which is flawless for travelers, people who live in poor coverage areas, or anyone trying to cut back on data usage. Still, the move will doubtlessly be appreciated by users. Now it just needs to remove the 10,000-track limit that applies to playlists.
