Spotify is a streaming service. We are unable to directly download our Spotify playlist to our local computer, but we can turn to some easy-to-use and useful tools, like Sidify, to record & export lossless audio files from Spotify as MP3/AAC/WAV/FLAC/AIFF/ALAC files.


If you are looking for a tool to convert any streaming music (such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, Deezer, YouTube, YouTube Music, SoundCloud, DailyMotion …) to MP3, Sidify All-In-One is the go-to choice.
