Spotify lets you download music to almost any screen on its mobile apps, but the option is strangely different depending on where you are. While you can download any song or album as long as you have Spotify Premium, let’s start with the most obvious, your Songs You Like playlist.

To do this, open the Spotify app on your iPhone, iPad, Where Android device, then go to the “Your Library” tab.

Navigate to the album or playlist and tap the “Download” button below the description.
