As the mobile phone becomes a necessity for most of us, you can barely see a person running in the street with an MP3 player. But if you're the nostalgic type of person, you still can play your favorite songs on an MP3 player without facing a phone screen.

The thing is, most MP3 players aren't integrated with the mainstream online music providers such as Spotify. And if you want to download songs from Spotify, the song files can't be played elsewhere. But here's a fix.

In the following part, I'm going to show you how to play Spotify on an MP3 player. By the end of this article, you'll learn the best way to enjoy Spotify songs on your tiny little MP3 player without any limitations.

Play Music on Spotify Compatible MP3 Player

Hello, I'm new to Spotify and I understand that you can download tracks for offline use onto MP3 players, as long as the MP3 player has the Spotify app.

However, I work in an area where I can't have wireless devices. This means my music player basically has to be the old school iPod style where there is no Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Does anyone know of a way to make Spotify offline work with a non-wireless MP3 player? - - Jay from Reddit

There's only one MP3 player that has integrated with Spotify and can play Spotify songs offline. It's called Mighty. It can play songs from Spotify offline without internet connection. You don't even need a cable to connect this player to your phone or computer. With the Mighty app, you can directly sync your Spotify playlist to your MP3 player wirelessly. Then you can put down your phone and go outdoor with this tiny MP3 player.

Since the Mighty MP3 player hasn't mounted with a speaker, you'll need to plug in your headphones or connect with Bluetooth devices to play songs.

But if you already have an MP3 player and don't want to replace it, how to put music on MP3 player from Spotify without the integration? Here's how.

Play Spotify on Any MP3 Player

If you want to play Spotify songs on MP3 players like Sony Walkman or iPod Nano/Shuffle, you'll have to download each song on your computer and then import them to the MP3 player. But as all songs from Spotify are protected by DRM, you can't play the downloaded file elsewhere even if you have Spotify Premium.
