How it works

Those online Spotify downloading sites work very directly. Just copy a Spotify playlist and paste it into the search bar on one of those sites, and then click the “Download” or “Convert” button. Waiting for a while, you will get mp3 for each song listed in the playlist.

The method behind it is that downloading music from the site such as Youtube by searching the title. The advantage of the process is that the fast download speed and free to use on any platform (Windows, Mac, Android or iOS), but the disadvantage is that sometimes, you will get low quality, the wrong version of the song you want to download or can’t find the song you want.

Note: It’s illegal. Downloading massive amounts of music from unknown sources may against your local law.  Check this news
