Part 1. How to Download Music from Spotify to MP3

Spotify took its dominant position in the streaming music industry on the strength of its impressive 30 million-plus song catalog. It means that any song you want can be found in its library. And as such, some music lovers prefer to find music tracks on Spotify and want to use them to other places.

However, as a digital music service, Spotify only lets you listen to music, but not offer the feature of creating music tracks. If you want to use Spotify music to music production software or DJ software directly, it will be a little difficult to achieve. The only method is to download Spotify music to common audio formats via a third-party tool like ViWizard Spotify Music Converter and then apply them to other places.
