I am a commuter college student, about to start graduate school likely at a school an hour away that has a commute where I will often not have cell service. I just started trying out Spotify this weekend and I REALLY like it so far. I want to get the student Spotify service, mainly for listening without internet connection? How does it actually work since I can't see any sign to play while I'm out of connection? - - Spotify User from Reddit

Spotify has been the main go-to app for many people to stream music online. But many of the times we may go out of the cell service zone when exploring deep in the wild or driving through a long tunnel. How can we keep the music on Spotify going without internet connection?

In the following parts, I'm going to show you how to play Spotify without internet connection. If you want to be able to do this for free, keep reading till the end.

Q: How can I know the quality of the downloaded songs?

A: You can switch the download quality in the Spotify app on your phone. Go to Settings and under Music Quality, you can choose the download quality from normal to high and very high. Higher quality will use more data and disk space.

But on the desktop app, that doesn't seem to have the options to choose download quality, you can only select the streaming quality from Low, Normal to High and Very High. If you download songs on your desktop app, the quality might be the same as the streaming quality.

Q: What will happen if I lose internet connection while downloading?

A: The download process will be stopped instantly, you can wait for the internet to restart the download. But if you cancel the download, it will delete all the songs you have previously downloaded in the playlist. If you have a big playlist, this could be catastrophic. But if the download still doesn't resume after your internet is back, the only solution is to restart the download.
