How to Connect and Save Spotify Music to Google Drive

Updated by Adam Gorden on May 26, 2021 3:54 PM.

If you have the good habit to back up your media content on the cloud, then Google Drive could be one of the best options as it offers you 15G of free storage and allows you to upload, edit, synchronize, and share saved files including documents, images, audios, and videos across devices. But if you are trying to transfer Spotify music files to Google Drive, you may find it's not as easy as imagined.

Firstly, you have to subscribe to Spotify Premium with which you can get the right to download the Spotify songs and playlists for offline use. Besides, as the offline Spotify music downloaded with a Premium account can only be played well on devices that support Spotify app, it seems impossible to sync those offline Spotify songs to Google Drive for playback.

But please don't worry. Here we are going to introduce a simple way for you to easily download and connect Spotify music to Google Drive even if you are using Spotify free accounts.

How to Download Spotify Playlist to MP3

In order to make Google Drive recognize those downloaded Spotify songs or playlists, we should make sure those Spotify tracks are saved in common audio formats such as MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV, and more. However, since Spotify doesn't allow us to store Spotify music as MP3 or other formats, we have to seek for a special tool that can help us extract Spotify to MP3.

It is specialized in downloading and extracting Spotify songs to plain audio formats with original quality and ID3 tags preserved.
